Question 1: Hospital Information Systems (HIS) barriers include proper management.
The management of an organization can impact greatly on how well the implementation of HIS
occurs. Therefore it is of great importance that a healthcare organization chooses its leaders well
and makes sure that they have designed job roles that fit their position and work well to
implement the HIS.
Informatics can also be a barrier to implementation of HIS. When designing a HIS for a
healthcare facility, the programmers must put into consideration the needs of an organization and
its employee. In the case that this is not done, the systems developed will not fit well with the
organization's work hence implementation will not be possible.
Data and analytics as a barrier to implementation of HIS occur when the processes of
keying in data are not well established or when the wrong type of data is keyed in which makes
the systems analysis erroneous. Research, public health, and policy may also be a barrier to HIS
implementation. Government and global organizations, as well as universities, act as great
sources of healthcare knowledge and HIS systems, rely on them for high-quality data without
having to collect primary data themselves.
The advantages of HIS implementation include the fact that it enhances cost cuts. HIS
also increases efficiency in that they enhance work flow and make information easily available.
They also ensure proper storage of patient's information as well as its safety (Yusel, 2012).
Strategies for overcoming implementation barrier would include proper selection of
leaders and the training of employees on how to best use the systems to provide the right
information. It would also be important to make sure the HIS is designed to the organizations
needs and that it is synchronized with data sources such as research, public health, and policy.
Question 2: One of the leadership traits that CIOs must have in order to manage HMIS
challenges is the ability to build a great team. The implementation and management of HMIS
require for maximum cooperation from employees to attain smooth work flow and end results
free of error. Attaining this great team would require a proper choice of leaders as well as
training of the employees which can be topped up by creating motivational incentives. Some of
the trends in building great teams involve outsourcing for people to train employees (Kurian,
CIOs must also be able to execute a strategy. Implementation and management of HMIS
require a strategic plan that needs to be followed to achieve its goal. With the proper team in
place, a well-designed plan and great guidance execution can run really smoothly. Digitalization
as a trend uses mobile, cloud and data technologies for project executio...
