Enhanced PPM tools and effective methodology:
With budget and staff resources at a premium, Legacy Health’s IS project management office (PMO) needed advanced capabilities and a standardized, disciplined approach to increase visibility and improve results.
Legacy Health is a nonprofit, community-owned health system in the Portland-Vancouver area comprising six hospitals and more than 50 clinics. Like hospitals across the U.S., Legacy Health has been diligently working to meet requirements for programs such as ICD-10 and electronic health records (EHR), including meaningful use. It was during the enterprise implementation of the Epic system for its EHR that IS first established a PMO. Legacy Health selected UMT as a partner to lead the implementation of enhanced portfolio and project management.
"I've been working on healthcare IT for 25 years, and we've been talking about this kind of project resource visualization all that time. This is the first time I've actually seen it - it is truly a best practice."
