Leadership’s Role in Organizational Change: Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapters 12 through 14 in the Wager, Lee, & Glaser (2017) text.
Health care leaders understand their role as change managers. Managing organizational change in health information systems initiatives can be very complex and concurrently rewarding, even when carried out strategically. The way in which data is inputted, stored, accessed, and disseminated is essential to quality patient health outcomes, profit margins, standardization, and strategic planning. When a health information system implementation is completed effectively and efficiently, the result is a quality IT project that is not only ready for the next generation but is ready for new technology convergence.
