Prepare to get where you need to be by assessing where you are. A well-executed assessment will answer the question “What is my hospital’s current state of IT,” and is the first step in formulating your move-forward plan. An accurate picture of your information systems capability will give you the information needed to design an effective IT strategy that can be implemented at a pace that can be supported.
Common concerns addressed with an IT assessment:
- Do we have the appropriate number of IT staff?
- Do we have the correct skill set?
- Are we working on the right projects?
- Are we fully utilizing our computer systems?
- Are our systems and networks secure?
- Do we have the right application mix?
- Are hospital departments satisfied with IT services?
