Examine Information Technology Implementation by analyzing a case on using integrated systems that collect,
track, and share information across local- and wide-area network tools to clinical and administrative audiences.
Evaluate the role of health care professionals in HIT acquisition and implementation through application of
financial management.
Applying your role as a summer intern for the not-for-profit organization that was presented in Week 2, you will
continue preparatory work on the strategic plan by addressing the following:

  1. The Health Information Technology (HIT) standards are developed both by national and international
    organizations for local and global implementation. In the US, the national organization is NIST (National
    Institute of Standards & Technology) and the international organization is ISO (International Standards
    Compare and contrast the functions of these two organizations and their healthcare IT standards. Analyze their
    standard development processes. Which type of healthcare organizations should implement their standards and
    why? Assess the value of the standards on the international market as well as implications for not adopting the
    HIT standards globally?
  2. Health Information Technology increases both efficacy and quality of healthcare and aids in operational and
    strategic planning. Although it incurs initial implementation investment and then periodic recurring maintenance
    and updating costs, it does not generate direct revenue, but the healthcare managers need to justify these costs to
    the executive management.
    Select two (2) methods or techniques that you would use to determine and justify the value of HIT. Evaluate
    both in terms of their pros and cons. Which of these two methods would you recommend to use for presentation
    to the management and why? Analyze how these two methods of HIT value determination differ from the
    traditional IT value determination for business and healthcare?
