Why an IT Strategic Roadmap?
Your hospital relies on technology. In fact, nearly everything that happens in your organization is affected by technology in some way.
That said, are you strategically aligning your existing IT with your healthcare business and finance departments? Better yet, do you have someone in place to ensure that the marriage between technology and operations is aligned?
Your IT department should play a key role in driving the integration of technology into your hospital’s business practices, but not all IT departments are strategically focused.
If you want to transform your organization into one where you’re ahead of technology, then you will need to develop an IT strategic roadmap, forecasting and planning for one, three and five-year plans. Atlanticon can do that for you while showing you the way and helping your IT department become stronger with confident leaders.
Our approach is simple and is led by a seasoned consultant with skills and experience that match a CIO’s role. It begins with a review of your systems, infrastructure and projects and includes discussions with all department leaders. Our initial hands-on assessment enables us to come up with a unique tactical IT plan designed specifically for your hospital. By focusing on major projects, outages,
and pain points within your organization, we will help you get on the right path. This roadmap will become your hospital’s strategic road map. It provides your organization with precise direction, identify gaps in the system, and outline a plan you can actually follow. The roadmap prioritizes the steps you need to take based on your strategic vision and resources available.
