HINF 6190 - Project Management♦


(3 sem. cr.) Through this course, students work toward gaining the knowledge and skills to implement a health information technology solution through the systems development life cycle (SDLC) using Project Management Institute-defined processes drawn from the Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) guide. Within the context of recognized PMBOK-project management standards, students learn to assess organizational need and readiness for a health information system, to engage in strategic and tactical planning for that technology, and to apply critical-path analysis. Students also explore preparation of the request for proposal (RFP) and evaluation of vendor responses as a part of an overall health information technology project management process. Through an integrative, collaborative project, students engage in a hypothetical health information technology project in which they develop a project schedule and charter, apply project management principles and concepts, work though project challenges, and reflect on lessons learned as part of their project closeout.
