601 Bay Bridge Health Network Research Paper
601, Bay, Bridge, Health, Network, Research, Paper
Prior to completing this assignment refer back to HIA601 where you learned about how the Five Pillars of Informatics guide the selection, implementation and sustained support of health information technology platforms in the health industry.
Reflect on the various types of informatics solutions such as clinical provider order entry (CPOE) implementations, implementations of patient portals or upgrades of patient management systems addressed as individual project initiatives in HIA601 and compare the program in your team’s chosen IDN.
As you examine each of the projects in your team’s program, analyze how these projects will be implemented in tandem in order to best address the stated goals of the IDN.
Consider the following: Are the systems being implemented in such a way that measurable and sustainable cost reductions can be gained? Also, prior to beginning work on this assignment, read Khandoobhai and Weber’s article “Issues Facing Pharmacy Leaders in 2014” (2014), the article “Planning Evaluation Through the Program Life Cycle ” by Scheirer et al (2012), and Wiliams et al article “The Effect of Information Technology on Hospital Performance ” ( 2016).
For this week’s assignment, each group will select an IDN from the IDN scenarios below. Your group will take on the role of the Program Management Office Director (PMOD). In this role, your group will create a program management plan that will encompass several projects.
These projects are listed within each IDN Scenario as “Informatics Implementation Projects.” You and each member of your team will choose one Informatics Implementation Project, for which you will take on the role of Project Manager.
You should note that each Informatics Implementation Project reflects a significant investment for the organization. It’s the job of the PMOD (your group) to determine how each project and the program overall creates tangible benefits for the organization while controlling technology costs.
Remember that while each project stands on its own as a discrete informatics solution being implemented in the organization, the challenge of the group is to assess the interrelationships and interdependencies between these projects as they form an informatics program.
I have to complete an Introduction and also a conclusion as well
Scenario my group has chosen is:
Option 1: Bay Bridge Health Network:
This integrated delivery network is comprised of 5 hospitals and 20 physician practices, five long-term care facilities, two urgent service medical malls and an insurance plan that covers 3 million covered lives in the San Francisco area. Strategic imperatives for this IDN include: 10% operational cost reductions that are sustainable across business units and the expansion of market share through virtualization strategies to compete with stand-alone and retail urgent care competitors in the region.
Informatics Implementation Projects: Your individual project takes the form of an initiative. Choose one from the list of informatics implementation initiatives below. The part I have chosen out the project is #Describe how each project within the informatics program individually contributes to achieving the goals of the IDN.
