NURS 6430 - Project Management: Healthcare Information Technology


(4 sem. cr.) The field of health informatics requires leaders who have the knowledge and skill to oversee all types of projects, from product or service conception through delivery to stakeholders; such knowledge requires an understanding of multiple core areas of management, such as scope, time, and quality management, among others. Students in this course explore the theory and practice of how to manage health information technology projects. Students learn how to plan, schedule, and control healthcare informatics projects. They consider hypothetical scenarios and professional experiences as they discuss project management specifics, such as managing risk, controlling changes in scope, and handling budget issues. Students use project management software to build a project schedule, and they engage in an integrative team project scenario, including all the major elements and challenges of a healthcare informatics project in the real world.
