Steering Committee Steering Committee In many organizations, an IT steering committee exists as a standing committee or forms when a major IT investment is being considered. These committees vary significantly in their purpose and composition, including their leadership. Critical access and small hospitals may not have an IT steering committee, with IT only being addressed at budget time as part of a budget committee. A major investment in health information technology (HIT), especially focusing on clinical information systems such as electronic health records (EHR) requires engaging representatives from all key stakeholder groups. An HIT steering committee is typically formed. The team needs to initiate its existence with a clearly defined goal and timeline. This necessity is apparent both from the standpoint of buy-in by the team's membership but also to put the activities in a context which is relevant to the organizations senior most governing body for the purposes of budgetary, resource allocation, and strategic planning.

The organization would like to develop an integrated health care system. A surgeon will head the integrated information system. The surgical team performs a large volume of surgical cases. The goal will target patients, nurses, and surgeons with necessary support such as digital images, bariatric tables, and supplies for complex cases.

The organization would like this request to be fulfilled so we can provide our patients with the care they deserve.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
