Project management is a professional discipline with a body of knowledge, training track, and accredited certifications. Project managers are tasked with delivering expected benefits and value to their employers through effective planning, organization, and risk mitigation. They align expected results to an organization’s key initiatives. Health information management (HIM) and project management employ some of the same principles and skills. Project managers must have skills in relationship management, document management, and process acumen, which are all requirements of an HIM director. RHIAs know about compliance challenges, shifting regulatory demands, and how to implement good workflow management. All these skills are used in project management (Dimick, 2011).
As departmental and organizational changes are implemented, HIM professionals working in project management are responsible for working with stakeholders to ensure that initiatives are on task and on schedule. For this task, you will reference the attached “Fielder Community Hospital Scenario” to complete the attached “Business Case Template.” In this template, you will detail a process improvement project you will manage as the HIM Systems Director for Fielder Community Hospital. You will work on the following project:
• transitioning from hybrid to fully digital EHR
You will also discuss the project scope and how it will support organizational goals.
The “Fielder Community Hospital Scenario” can be found in the Supporting Documents section.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. The similarity report that is provided when you submit your task can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
Tasks may not be submitted as cloud links, such as links to Google Docs, Google Slides, OneDrive, etc., unless specified in the task requirements. All other submissions must be file types that are uploaded and submitted as attachments (e.g., .docx, .pdf, .ppt).
