About the Seminar

Health IT is increasingly becoming a major part of Federal budgets as spending has increased second only to Defense. The Federal government is continuously seeking to integrate new technologies and services for Healthcare into various departments and branches. Failures of large Health IT - based projects have led to increased project governance and oversight within the Federal Government. Subsequently, the importance of managing a Health IT project throughout the project life cycle is more prevalent than ever before. Based on real-world examples, project experience and extensive research, the course will offer:
  • An overview of Health IT and its inherent complexities throughout the project life cycle through visual demonstrations and presentations
  • Application of project management knowledge areas to Health IT project scenarios including Project Procurement, Integration, Scope, and Risk Management
  • Discussion of Health IT Project Success and Failures, and the lessons learned using case studies and and real-world experience
