As a health care leader you will be responsible for not only the acquisition planning and management of HIT solutions but also for strategies to manage the different types of data acquired by these technologies. The aim for today’s health care leaders is to effectively plan making evidence-based decisions using data acquired through the use of HIT systems.
For this Assignment, you will evaluate the expansion of United General Hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU). You will create a detailed presentation with comprehensive presenter notes that explain each slide for United General’s CEO and board of directors.
