In August of 2012, we published a 20 Step IT Governance Checklist. Given the number of advances and changes in the healthcare IT industry over the past two years, we decided that it was about time to update and republish the checklist.
This checklist offers a framework to address your hospital’s IT governance standards. It provides guidance on assessing how well your IT environment is supporting users, patients, and organizational objectives. The checklist encourages IT staff to examine how the IT department is functioning overall, what key metrics are being met, and what return IT is providing the organization? Look at your IT department, starting with these 20 questions.
