As a leader in your healthcare organization, you may be wondering, “How do I hire talent to equip us for the future, when the future is morphing so rapidly in HIT?” Luckily, as the Healthcare IT landscape continues to evolve, several roles are being created to better respond to organizational needs. Some of these roles are new, and specifically tailored to better align with the organization’s current or future strategic plan. Role boundaries may be unclear, which can be a barrier to filling the position or meeting the role expectations.

Explain how this position provides support to the organization (ex. supports the decision-making process for HIT application and selection)

Create a job description for your chosen position

Share if you would be interested in this position

Discuss why these roles are important and what would be the benefit of having such positions in an organization 


Digital Healthcare

As the digital healthcare ecosystem continues to expand, a large amount of data is being generated. It is no surprise that today’s healthcare industry is experiencing a revolution. It is driven by the irreversible surge in the availability and quantity of data. Not long ago, administrators were compelled to make critical operational, clinical, and financial decisions on the basis of their experience, without having access to sufficient data.

Thanks to the technological advancements of today’s latest data architectures such as Hadoop, Map Reduce, or Azure Data Lake, modern healthcare entities are armed with historical data and real-time quality. This has fundamentally changed how healthcare services are consumed and delivered. Healthcare leaders in both public and private settings are relying on data generated by their systems to make recommendations or predict outcomes. Healthcare leaders MUST be familiar with analytical tools and data analysis in general.

Explore the use of data in the decision-making process in a healthcare environment.

Include the following aspects in the discussion:

Evaluate the importance of having analytical skills in a healthcare leadership position

Discuss potential barriers healthcare organizations might face in developing their workforce in      specialized training such as data analysis

Choose one of the three (Hadoop, Map Reduce, or Azure Data Lake) tools listed and summarize its contribution to the precise, concise, and scalable data
