When a hospital CIO or IT Director unexpectedly leaves, a quick decision to bring in interim IT management can insure stability and continuity while transition plans are made and executed. Phoenix has a long history of providing experienced HIT leaders in such circumstances, with strong backgrounds in transition and crisis management, at short notice.
Whatever the situation, Phoenix applies the management resources, proven methodologies and industry standards required for effective IT department operation. Elements of our Interim Management services include:
- Initial assessment of the IT function to identify status of essential services, areas of risk, unidentified needs, committed projects, resources, etc. The early focus is on risk avoidance, department stability and quality of services.
- Collaboration with the hospital’s senior management to establish goals and objectives, service levels and priorities.
- Continuing oversight by Phoenix’ senior management, and support by our specialized consulting resources, as needed.
