Implementation

Project Management

Healthtech Consultants’ practical and proven project management methodology has earned us a reputation for finishing projects on time and on budget. We provide comprehensive project management for all MEDITECH System related projects ranging from small departmental applications to broad regional multi-system implementations. We use a partnership approach where the planning and execution of IT initiatives is a collaborative effort between the Healthtech and client teams.

Our approach to project management is one that reflects and supports sharing of responsibilities in the areas of risk management, change management, planning and prioritization, communication, budgeting, staffing and resourcing, project monitoring and quality assurance.

At each stage of every MEDITECH project, Healthtech envisions that staff and managers involved and affected by the project will be key participants. In Healthtech’s experience, team building and open communication are continuous project processes. Through these processes, teams can identify and address conflicting stakeholder requirements.

Change Management

Large-scale change occurs when a significant number of people support and choose it. This is why the development and implementation of a supportive change management strategy is critical to the success and adoption of new technology in healthcare organizations.

Healthtech Consultants understand that the purpose of a change management strategy is to ensure that stakeholders are ready, willing and able to accept the proposed change and ultimately make it a success.

Our change management consultants have significant healthcare organizational experience and understand the challenges associated with adopting new processes and technologies within a MEDITECH environment. In addition to understanding healthcare, our consultants have unique facilitation and interpersonal skills which are critical in delivering this service. Healthtech Consultants has developed and consistently implemented strategies that increase the rate and speed of adoption and acceptance of new processes and systems

Healthtech’s approach to change management is based on two foundational underpinnings:

  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Building Capacity

The five plans that combine to form Healthtech’s change management strategy are:

  • Readiness Plan
  • Transition Plan
  • Training Plan
  • Communication Plan
  • Evaluation Plan
