KSU NOHIMSS Webinar Series: Modern Project Management for Healthcare IT

March 17, 2:00am, UTC - 3:00am, UTC



Non-member Price: 

In today’s healthcare organizations, information technology has become ever more important to the work of caring for patients, conducting research and educating new caregivers. Once a peripheral concern, IT systems have moved into the center of the average caregiver’s daily life. Now the evaluation, installation and management of IT is at the center of healthcare operations. Project Managers play an increasingly important role in managing the organization’s time and energy spent in evaluating, acquiring and integrating new systems and tools in an already time-challenged environment.  This talk will highlight areas of PM practice that we at the Cleveland Clinic have found to be most helpful and compatible with a large academic healthcare institution’s technology project’s needs.
