Question Description

In this project you are asked to plan implementation of an electronic health record in an organizations using the the work break down tasks described below. In the following tasks, training on a system can only be done if the system has been configured. Your objective is to develop a schedule:

  1. Patient Information Management
    1. Admission, Discharge, and Transfer (requires configuration in subtask B, configuration lasts 30 days, training lasts 5 days)
    2. Patient Registration (requires configuration of subtask C, configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 5 days)
    3. Enterprise Master Patient Index (configuration lasts 3 days)
    4. Patient Scheduling (requires configuration of subtask B, configuration lasts 10 days, training lasts 5 days)
  2. Clinical Information System (requires configuration of systems but not training in tasks 1, 3,4)
    1. Clinical Alerts and Reminders (requires configuration of subtask B, D, E, G, configuration lasts 30 days, training lasts 5 days)
    2. Clinical Rules Engine (configuration lasts 10 days)
    3. Consults Tracking (requires configuration of subtask G, configuration lasts 3 days)
    4. Order Management (requires configuration of subtask H, configuration lasts 30 days, training lasts 5 days)
    5. Results Reporting (requires configuration of subtask D, configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 5 days)
    6. Clinical Documentation (requires configuration of subtask E, configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 5 days)
    7. Computerized Provider Order Entry (requires configuration of subtasks F, H, I, and J, configuration lasts 45 days, training lasts 15 days)
    8. Intake/Output (configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 5 days)
    9. Patient Education (configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 5 days)
    10. Vitals/Measurements (requires configuration of subtask H, configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 1 day)
  3. Laboratory (requires configuration of systems in task 1)
    1. Anatomic Pathology (requires configuration of subtasks B and C, configuration lasts 10 days, training lasts 5 days)
    2. Microbiology (requires configuration of subtask C, configuration lasts 10 days, training lasts 5 days)
    3. Chemistry (configuration lasts 10 days, training lasts 2 days)
  4. Pharmacy (requires configuration of systems in task 3)
    1. Adverse Reaction Tracking (requires configuration of subtasks B, C, and D, configuration lasts 10 days, training lasts 5 days)
    2. Electronic Medication Administration Record (requires configuration of subtask D, configuration lasts 10 days, training lasts 5 days)
    3. Bar Code Medication Administration (requires configuration of subtask B, configuration lasts 30 days, training lasts 15 days)
    4. Inpatient/Outpatient Pharmacy (configuration lasts 3 days, training lasts 5 days)

Prepare a report of your project using word processing or slides, containing the following sections:

  1. Title page, your name and contact information
  2. Purpose: State the purpose of the project and the total length of the schedule from start to finish.
  3. Schedule (high level tasks): Show project Work Breakdown Structure showing high-level tasks, start time and finish time. Please make sure that this information can be read clearly.
  4. Schedule (Sub-tasks): List the start and end of each task.
  5. Critical Path: Make a list of activities on the critical path and show the GANTT chart
  6. Introspection (what did you learn from this exercise): Is Project Management software useful and why?
