Description

One of the most frequent complaints CIOs share is that healthcare practitioners do not know the key elements of project management, or IT development, implementation or maintenance; and, their IT managers do not know the specifics of the healthcare business practices needed to make IT implementations effective and compliant. This session presents the results from a statewide collaboration between the Virginia Chapter of HIMSS and the four state Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters undertaken in 2015 to develop and field a cross-training program for health IT project managers and healthcare practitioners. Learn how to leverage publicly available materials to create training programs in your organization and how to form partnerships that deliver results.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Apply lessons from the Virginia HIMSS Chapter's experience to develop a health IT training program for their organization
  • Identify publicly available training materials for both IT Project managers and healthcare practitioners that facilitate cross-training
  • Assess the value/ROI to participants and stakeholders of the cross-training

Audience:
