2 INNOVATIVE IT STRATEGY Innovative IT Strategy–Challenges in the Health Care Continuum Executive Summary Canon hospital is a 189-bed hospital in rural Texas. The hospital is approximately 100 miles and 150 miles away from two major medical centers of excellence in Texas. As the CIO of Canon Hospital, you are aware that there are capabilities to do telemedicine programs with tertiary care centers. Two of the senior medical staff in the critical care and neurology departments at Canon Hospital have approached you to investigate telemedicine capabilities related to the management of ICU patients and the emergency management of patients presenting with stroke symptoms. The medical leaders would like to ideally preserve the appropriate services for ICU patients and rehabilitative services for stroke patients in the canon hospital community. They recognize that portions of these treatment plans must include certified critical care and stroke certified providers from a tertiary care center. The management team is asking for an examination of both the business and technical aspects of establishing telemedicine programs with one or two of the tertiary care centers who have certified specialists in critical care and stroke certified physicians who can administer TPA and other urgent stroke treatments. Introduction In a 3- to 4-page project Charter will develop a plan of the acquisition of a HIT Solution for the facility scenario (above). The Charter will include a problem statement; which explains the problems (Scope) that are intended to address in this scenario using technology solutions. The report will provide both the technical elements of the scope and the business and clinical functional aspects of the range. Also, a stakeholders analysis, including the needs of both internal

The review will include a summary of the business and clinical system functions that the technology should address for each of the executive stakeholders. Furthermore, a risk analysis; which explains a specific statement of the financial, technical, legal, ethical, and operational risks involved in introducing HIT into this setting and the possible mitigation strategies to address these risks. Furthermore, address the financial element of the project Charter used to plan the acquisition of a HIT solution for the scenario chosen. The economic analysis has two parts: Use the HIT Pro Forma template to complete the anticipated capital and operating costs of the HIT solution proposal.
