Provider execs: Time for more structured health IT governance

Hospitals are taking a more formal and disciplined approach to choosing IT projects, according to an article in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. "Without a governance structure, IT at many hospitals and health care systems is a haphazard endeavor that typically results in late, over-budget projects and, ultimately, many disparate systems that don't function well together," Guy Scalzi, a principal with health IT consulting firm Aspen Advisors LLC, tells the author. The article, which features insights and advice from C-suite execs at a number of provider organizations, also lists "rules to live by" for IT governance, which cover issues such as committee structure and chain of command.
