IT Strategic Planning

HIS Pros plans future IT activities within the larger context of the healthcare institution's business and marketing plans. Strategic planning takes into account user satisfaction with current systems, potential gaps in the application portfolio, new developments in the IT industry, and current IT levels of staffing and costs.

Our planning process integrates and prioritizes individual IT initiatives within the overall goals of the organization. Interviews and focus groups involve all levels of administrative, medical and professional staffs to arrive at an IT strategic plan that will best accomplish the institution's short term and long term goals.

Our top-down and bottom-up approach insures that the entire organization buys in to the new IT plan, rather than just the IT department or executives alone. The finished plan is provided in electronic format to make it a living document, for periodic updates.
