IMPLEMENTATION OF PATIENT CHECK IN KIOSKS FOR A CLINIC
Final Written Assignment Paper including all components
(parts and pieces needed) for a complete healthcare informatics project
management plan from start to finish.
The primary components of a Project Management Plan are:
Statement remember this should be SMART: Specific.
Achievable. Relevant. and Time Bound. If these boundaries are
not clear or explicitly defined, things tend to end up within the project
that weren’t estimated during the planning phase, thereby quietly driving
up the schedule and budget in a process called scope creep.
Success Factors include: Deadlines (time), Budget (cost), Quality
standards, End user benefits, Minimal change orders, Low rate of product
rejections, and Employee satisfaction.
- Deliverables are
products, services, or results that the project is commissioned to
Breakdown Structure is a logical subdivision of the project into
tasks. Management of the project is then done on a task by task basis.
- Schedule is
important piece of the puzzle as projects have a defined beginning and
External stakeholders are involved in the determination of
the deadline dates. (Use MS Project)
used day-to-day tool
- is a
graphical depiction of the project schedule using horizontal bars to
illustrate each task’s start and end dates
the fastest way to see the project schedule
- Budget is
one of the most scrutinized tools of the project manager due to temporary
nature of a project. It is estimated on a task by task basis; using the
same tools as the schedule (above); and rolled up into an overall project
required well-defined budget.
Three point estimating often used in budgeting. In
this technique/method, each task is assigned three values:
Most Likely (ML) estimate is the regular estimated value.
optimistic (O) estimate
pessimistic (P) estimate
The final task estimate can be derived from either:
A standard distribution (average):
Estimate = (O + ML + P) / 3
A beta distribution
Estimate = (O + 4ML + P) / 6
- Quality: every
industry has standard quality success criteria which can be looked up and
specified for the project. When a project produces a deliverable there are
always quality standards and these should be itemized and listed:
a strategy to meet the standards (quality assurance)
quality (quality control)
