You are the administrator of a clinic with 50 employees. You have been tasked with facilitating discussion with other health professionals in your clinic to select a new EHR system, which will be implemented across the organization. Please complete the assignment as indicated in the instructions below.
Construct a plan to build 1–2 effective teams to collaborate in selecting a new EHR system for the clinic. Identify the professional roles that should be represented on your team(s). You should be prepared for possible disagreements regarding priorities and processes, so your plan must include at least three team or consensus-building methods.
Evaluate the concepts of change management theories, techniques, and leadership by assessing typical challenges seen with implementing a new EHR system across an organization. Your evaluation should demonstrate that you have considered how a transition to EHR would result in the need to plan for change management interventions. Provide two examples of challenges arising from EHR adoption and detail the change management theories that you would enact to overcome resistance to change.
Demonstrate implementation of a departmental strategic plan by detailing at least two areas of risk exposure mitigation, organizational or process redesign, training, or communication strategy, as they relate to EHR implementation.
Demonstrate understanding of the purpose of the procurement process. What are the purposes of the request for proposal (RFP), the request for information (RFI), and the request for quotation (RFQ)? Provide detail for when and how to use each to help an HCO more fully identify its needs and the issues involved with planning for significant projects or purchases.
