Strategic plan | Information Systems homework help

 

Prior to  beginning work on this assignment, read Chapters 12 through 14 from the  Wager, Lee, & Glaser (2017) text, read the articles by Kahn (2015)  and by Laihonen (2015), and watch the video Dave deBronkart: Meet E-Patient Dave (Links to an external site.) (2011).

You will select a Strategic Organizational Goal from the following  list that you will use to develop a strategic plan for your proposed  health information system:

  • Research and education
  • Patient Care: Quality improvement
  • Patient Care: Sharing data across the system
  • Patient Care: Non-acute services
  • Financial stability

Before beginning to develop your strategic goal, it is important to  understand your objectives. In other words, as you choose your Strategic  Goal, keep in mind the overall impact you want this goal to have on  your department or the organization as a whole. As an example, if you  chose Patient Care: Sharing Data Across the System, you can start by  thinking about the expeditiousness of information from the pharmacy back  to the care team, and how such interface may impact patient outcome. A  good acronym to use to sort through your thought process is PICOT  (Population/Problem, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome, and Time); the  PICOT approach is spelled out below:

  • Population/Patient problem – Who is it that you are trying to provide service for?
  • Intervention – What is it you are trying to do? Or, what are you fixing?
  • Comparison – Is there a possible alternative to this system? Or, why did I choose this system?
  • Outcome – What is the goal here?
  • Time – How long will this plan take to be implemented?

The plan for your chosen Strategic Organizational Goal should

  • Outline one problem an organization faces related to your selected Strategic Organizational Goal.
  • Develop a solution to the problem identified that utilizes your health information system from Week 1.
  • Evaluate the essentials steps in creating information governance.
  • Articulate the roles and responsibilities of key players in policy, strategies, and challenges.
