This health information technology (HIT) toolkit stresses the importance of strategic planning—linking the HIT planning in support of the organization’s strategic imperatives. Strategic HIT planning encompasses:1.Setting high-level objectives for HIT to support the organization’s strategicimperatives 2.Determining the HIT strategic vendor approach and how that impacts the ability of HIT to support the organization’s strategic imperatives

3.Building the migration path necessary to achieve the high-level objectives within the HIT strategic vendor approachHigh-Level ObjectivesHigh-level objectives focus HIT projects directly on the strategic imperatives of the organization. For example, if the organization’s strategic imperative is to improve quality through benchmarking with similar organizations, a high level HIT objective may be to support quality measurement and reporting. If a hospital identifies a strategic imperative to improve patient safety, a high-level objective for HIT may be to provide a closed loop medication management system. In addressing your organization’s strategic imperatives, you will have operational components as well as HIT components. New information technologies may enable a health care organization to address strategic imperatives that previously would have been impossible. For example, with expanded and lower cost mobile telecommunications, a hospital may now be able to carry out its vision of expanding services to migrant workers.

Your organization may be looking at buying a medically equipped bus and adding a nurse practitioner to the staff, as well as linking the bus to the hospital through telecommunications services. A hospital may find that its primary HIT vendor now has an ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) offering that could support the hospital’s long term strategic interest of aligning more closely with the physician community, such as buying physician practices and installing an ambulatory EHR. HIT Strategic Vendor ApproachHigh-level objectives for HIT are not as specific as the measurable goals you will set for use of specific applications (1.2 HIT Goal Setting). Rather high-level objectives provide an overall general direction. To carry out each objective you need to plan for specific applications, technology, and operational support and specific goals. One limiting factor that cuts across all high level HIT objectives is the HIT strategic vendor approach of whether the health care organization generally will use one primary vendor for all of its applications or will use multiple, different vendors
