Using SDLC Methodology to Implement HIT

  title={Using SDLC Methodology to Implement HIT},
  author={Neerja Rehani},
HIT failure rate has been estimated to be as high as 50 – 70 % and is considered a major barrier to adoption of IT by the healthcare industry. Factors like staff resistance to change and non-compliance, inadequate management, policies and procedures, and technical failures emerge as primary reasons for HIT implementation failure (Kaplan & Harris-Salamone, 2009). Strategies like interdisciplinary collaboration, open communication, staff training and support, and strong leadership could mitigate… 

White Paper: Health IT Success and Failure: Recommendations from Literature and an AMIA Workshop

A workshop at the AMIA Fall 2006 Symposium focused on "Avoiding The F-Word: IT Project Morbidity, Mortality, and Immortality", reflecting the conviction that AMIA members and AMIA as an organization can take a leadership role to make projects more practical and likely to succeed in health care settings.

A Multilevel Model of Resistance to Information Technology Implementation

A multilevel, longitudinal approach to better explain resistance to information technology implementation was used, finding that the bottom-up process by which group resistance behaviors emerge from individual behaviors is not the same in early versus late implementation.

Technology Evaluation: Workarounds to Barcode Medication Administration Systems: Their Occurrences, Causes, and Threats to Patient Safety

A typology of clinicians' workarounds when using barcoded medication administration (BCMA) systems is developed, finding nurses overrode BCMA alerts for 4.2% of patients charted and for 10.3% of medications charted.

Description of Inpatient Medication Management Using Cognitive Work Analysis

Key elements of an inpatient medication system are described using the cognitive work analysis method of Rasmussen et al (Cognitive Systems Engineering; 1994) to suggest that decision making on an in patient medical/surgical unit or ICU setting is a parallel, distributed process.
