MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT
As medical research continues to advance, medical technology is becoming increasingly expensive and increasingly complex. Each new therapeutic and diagnostic technology—such as MRI, CAT, and wet laboratory techniques— claims value to patients while drawing on the institution's resources. Adding to this complexity is the need to integrate these technologies (old and new) with the information systems that serve the organization's administrative functions:
Drawing on experience in hospital administration, as educators of medical technology management, and serving on the board of advisors of the Center for the Management of Medical Technology at IIT, GHC offers highly effective consulting services. We'll help you frame these important questions to facilitate analysis, explore solutions, and help you implement the most productive decisions.
- What should be the criteria for adoption of a new medical technology?
- How are costs and benefits evaluated?
- Who makes the decisions to adopt or reject?
- How should the information and telecommunications systems of the enterprise support therapeutic and diagnostic technologies?
- How can you create a useful and practical electronic patient record, at reasonable cost and in a reasonable time frame?
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY GOVERNANCE ANALYSIS & IMPROVEMENT
Many of the problems afflicting CIOs and their information technology departments can be traced to faulty governance of IT activity. Who can authorize IT projects? More importantly, who can authorize changes in IT projects? How are projects evaluated? What controls should be applied to project execution? A comprehensive governance program can result in a more effective IT program and prevent many problems.
