Option #1: Project Plan for Choosing and Implementing a Departmental-Level Information System
Review Chapter 6 in your text (Wager, Lee, & Glaswer, 2017) for a complete guide to system implementation. Based upon the information provided, prepare a project plan that addresses the following requirements:
Identify a problem in a healthcare setting that could be solved by the implementation of a new information management system. (The problem could be from your current workplace or a problem that was identified through course readings and research.)
Identify the stakeholders—who is impacted by the problem? How?
Propose a solution to the problem and the system that would support this solution. Be sure to identify the scope and goals of the project.
Evaluate the costs, set-up, and operational issues that would be part of the technology-based system.
Explain in detail the project management process that will be utilized by your project and the stakeholders involved in each step of its implementation.
Analyze which steps in your plan are the most critical and which are the most time-consuming. What strategies will be employed to manage these aspects of the project?
Determine the criteria that will be used to measure whether or not the project is successful.
Conclude with a summary of the ongoing maintenance, training, and support that will be needed in order to make your project a continued success.
Your paper should include the following:
Eight to ten pages in length, including the title and reference pages.
Support your paper and points with a minimum of five sources in addition to the course text. Remember, you must support your thinking/opinions and prior knowledge with references; all facts must be supported, and in-text citations used throughout the assignment must be included in an APA-formatted reference list. The CSU-Global library is a good place to find these references.
Format your paper, citations, and references according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.).
Review the grading rubric in the Module 8 folder for specific grading criteria and reach out to your instructor if you have questions about the assignment.
