HINF 510 Week 1 Individual Assignment Project Selection
Instructions: Deploying a technology-based health care solution is one of the most important tasks a health care IT department can perform. The amount of planning that goes into a project like this is immense and includes not only the implementation and training elements but also the selection and contracting components. Over the next six weeks, you will be asked to take on the role of chief information officer (CIO) for a medium-sized health system that includes five hospitals, three outpatient clinics, and employs about 250 physicians. You are charged with implementing a new health IT system for your organization. During the coming weeks, you will be asked to assess the need for the system, requirements of the organization, product selection, and system implementation along with other key activities leading to the successful deployment of the new system. Write a 350-word proposal in which you select a health IT system you would like to implement. You may select any system you wish; however, the system must have a clinical focus (e.g., Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Consolidated Provider Order Entry (CPOE), ePrescribing (eRX), etc.). Your proposal should include the following:
- Description of health IT system selected
- Reason for selection
- How the system will have an impact on the organization Note. Faculty approval is required before moving on to the subsequent assignments.
