Application: Organization Planning, Project Management, and Information Technology The successful implementation and subsequent meaningful use of information technology solutions within a health care organization is a challenging and iterative process. The organization must engage in careful and ongoing strategic and tactical planning to ensure that the implemented technology will ultimately be effective and beneficial for its practitioners, staff, and patients. To prepare for this Application Assignment, review the information presented in this week’s Learning Resources on strategic and tactical planning for health information technology and the application of project management methodology by health care organizations to facilitate the implementation of its technology solutions.

To complete this Application Assignment, write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you: Distinguish between strategic planning and tactical planning within an organization, delineating at least two key differences between them. Characterize the relationship between strategic planning and information technology, with consideration given to how this relationship ultimately benefits a health care organization. Explain how the application of project management methodology benefits an organization and, in the context of a health care organization, how it facilitates the implementation of that organization's information technology solutions.

What does a healthcare organization do when they see the need for change or something new, like the advancement of information technology?
