HIT Projects and Decision Makers
 

A nurse leader sought to implement greater security in the children’s wing of the hospital by installing a new alarm and monitoring system. Due to budget constraints, the CNO rejected the proposal, stating that current security methods were sufficient. Shortly after this failed proposal, an individual did in fact breach the children’s wing security and abducted a young child. Thankfully, the child was found and returned to her parents; and the CNO quickly found the money to install the new security system.
 

Not all HIT projects have such high-profile stakes. The main takeaway from this example is the importance of getting key stakeholders and decision makers on board when planning a new HIT project.
 

To prepare:

  • Bring      to mind a HIT project implemented in your organization. Which leaders      identified the project? Which stakeholders and decision makers helped      moved the project forward?
  • Consider      methods that were used to garner the support of stakeholders and decision      makers to move the project forward.
