Strategic Planning for John Hopkins Hospins

It is a fact that every healthcare institution has to have proper strategies and management so as to realize success, stability and continuity. This research therefore takes to analyze the strategies that are used by hospitals that deal in the provision of laboratory services. Particularly, many hospitals have been able to accord the best of services to its patients and members of the public due to proper execution of Health Information Management Systems [HIMS].

It is against this backdrop that John Hopkins Hospital has been able to be ranked as being among the number one among the top twenty hospitals in the US for the past twenty years. Part of this has been attributed to the application of HIMS in its laboratory services.

The gravity in the above ruling is premised on the fact that it is the proper coordination of HIMS that proper information and details concerning an illness that has been diagnosed can be adduced for further action such as treatment. Specifically, proper Health Information Management Systems enables John Hopkins Hospital to gather enough information from the field of epidemiological works and compilations. This would help in the identification of a given illness, pronto. On the other hand, other hospitals that do not apply proper HIMS in diagnoses take a lot of time to discern an illness, due to scantiness of information. The gravity of this development is that diagnosis acts as the very first crucial step, as it enables the identification of an illness, for appropriate treatment, subsequently.
