Health information technology – evaluation plan project – evaluation | nurs6451 | Walden University
Because of the great differences between HIT systems and different goals of an evaluation, there is no one-size-fits-all evaluation plan. Different technologies require different evaluation methods. Consequently, in this part of the Evaluation Plan Project, there is a need to conduct research on how system implementations prevent errors, enhance the quality, and efficiency of health systems. Select one research goal and viewpoint to use in the evaluation.
In a 4-page documentation:
· Identify which of the cases from the text, will be evaluated in this project, summarize the case, and explain why the selected system featured in the case.
· Next, summarize your three research findings on similar HIT implementations. Include the models, evaluation methods, findings, and plans for reevaluation in each article.
· Critique the HIT implementations: Identify successful and unsuccessful elements of the implementations. Explain the reasons for the successful elements. Identify areas for improvement and explain why (or how) they could be improved.
· Create an evaluation goal and identify the viewpoint related to the goal that will guide your own evaluation plan. Provide a rationale for choosing that goal and viewpoint.
