Health_Care_Information_Systems_2e_Ch14 (2).pdf

Resource: Ch. 14 of Health Care Information Systems

Consider the following scenario:

·During the fourth week of your internship, the CIO e-mails you several examples of other IT project implementations. Later that day, she says to you, “Review the examples I sent you about the implementation process. I attached a list of questions for you to answer about how the implementation process works and why IT projects sometimes fail. I’m most interested in your analysis of how organizations such as ours can minimize the occurrences and effects of IT failures.”

Read the University of Phoenix Material: Case Study—Memorial Health System CPOE Implementation.

Write at least a 700-word paper in which you answer the following questions:

·What is the typical IT implementation process? What are the roles and responsibilities involved in system implementation? 

·How did the process described in the case study fail to include the fundamental activities identified in Ch. 7 of Health Care Information Systems?

·Ch. 14 of Health Care Information Systemsdescribes the causes of project failure. What are at least five indicators of project failure that manifest themselves in the case study?

·For each indicator you described what might you have done differently to eliminate or minimize its effect?

In addition to the above, to earn the maximum points, be sure to:

·Include a title page and reference pageconsistent with APA guidelines.

·Include an introduction paragraph that provides sufficient background and previews what the paper will cover.

·Include a conclusion paragraph that summarizes major points of your paper. 

·Use paragraph headings to make it easier for the reader to locate the required content requested by the CIO.

·Keep in mind that you are an intern asked to create an analysis of how to minimize failures for a CIO. 

·Cite your sources (reference only credible sources); DO NOT PLAGIARIZE.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
