The FY10 BIDMC IS Operating Plan

I've previously posted the Draft Clinical Systems Operating Plan for BIDMC Information Systems.

Today, I've posted the entire FY10 BIDMC IS Operating plan for infrastructure, clinical systems, financial systems, HIM, knowledge services, media services, academic computing, and our community sites.

Highlights include:

Numerous infrastructure upgrades to networking, storage, and security

Meaningful Use of EHRs for inpatient and outpatient clinical care

Upgraded supply chain, revenue cycle, and payroll functionality to support enhanced workflow and efficiency

Continued migration from a hybrid paper/electronic record to fully electronic

Enhancement to consent management education, plain language educational resources, and on- line knowledgebases

Expanded telemedicine and collaboration tools

Advanced research administration support tools.

Meditech upgrades including CPOE, eMAR, and interfaces.

The task of building better applications and more reliable infrastructure is never done, but each year we get better and better. Setting priorities that balance available resources, quality and safety is the challenge. I hope our customers and employees agree that we've set a reasonable balance.
