Link to PDF: Stakeholder Analysis
Given that the number of people defined as project stakeholders is very large, it is useful for the change manager to prepare a stakeholder map during the planning process. Given at the HIMSS12 conference, this presentation describes creating a stakeholder map, or a listing of all of groups affected by the project classified according to their level of influence and support for the project. Classification is important because the change manager works with stakeholder groups differently depending on their project influence and support levels. For example, a stakeholder group that is highly influential and supportive requires different time and effort when compared to a highly influential stakeholder group that is very resistant.

Given at the 2011 PMI Global Conference North America, This presentation includes an effective methodology that encompasses standards (e.g., PMBOK) and best practices for integrated project management, information technology management, and change management for a streamlined transition to digital medicine. Included are real-world examples from Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) project leaders, who identify how this integrated approach leads to successful project implementations.
Link to PDF: Transformation Management
Transformation management is planning, executing and controlling the adoption of innovation by individuals or groups of stakeholders. Healthcare organizations are unique in the range of cultures they employ. A typical hospital will have a management culture (hospital administration), a technical culture (IT department), and of course the clinical culture (nurses, physicians, laboratory technicians, to name a few). Given to the HIMSS Change Management Task Force, this presentation describes how to approach each of these cultures and the widely different factors affecting their members’ HIT acceptance.

Healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) face significant challenges in moving from paper to electronic health record (EHR) systems. This is important given the highly complex nature of HDOs and the fundamentally transformative nature of healthcare information technology (HIT). Given at the 2011 University of Washington Health Services Annual Research Meeting, this presentation proposes combining project management, information technology (IT) management and change management into single methodology to prevent project failures, maximize adoption of project benefits and streamline the path toward digital medicine.
Link to PDF: Change Management and Meaningful Use
Meaningful Use is supposed to enable significant and measurable improvements in healthcare delivery through the use of information technology such as an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. The impact of implementing an EHR on your healthcare organization is very significant. This Healthcare Information Management System Society (HIMSS) presentation addresses how to manage change associated with EHR implementations as you achieve meaningful use.
