An EHR implementation may require changes in workflow. Get everyone excited about the implementation by discussing the benefits of each new function the system will bring. Receptionists will love the newly streamlined patient arrival process that no longer requires walking each patient chart to the rack; triage nurses will appreciate having each patient call documented, as well as the elimination of delays in pulling charts. Consider carefully all aspects of the workflow. You’ll gain the greatest benefit from your EHR by planning what you want the flow to be post implementation – instead of trying to duplicate the flow you had with the paper system.

The key to a successful project depends on consistent communication between all members of the team, clarity, and good performance measures. There are several steps that must be taking when selecting and acquiring an information system. The first step is to assign a project steering committee with people from different departments within or close to the organization; these individuals on this committee will coordinate, organize, plan, and manage the system acquisition process in researching what type of information system that would be right for the organization; then a project manager needs to be appointed to be the overseer of the project and to make sure the project will be on schedule as planned, staying on and within budget; next the project goals and objectives must be defined specifically for the organization and vendors will need to be screened and evaluated in order to get the best individuals for the project; after vendors have been screened and evaluated carefully, the organization should start receiving proposals from the screened vendors After all goals and objectives have been carefully established and understood, it is time to put a proposal together to receive
Finally, I must consider all other employees, the local communities and customers, and the suppliers. My job will be to monitor the effect this change will have on them and identify if and when communication needs to occur to them. The primary audience will initially be taken back by this change because it goes against the previous strategy of the company. I need to make sure they understand the purpose and have a voice in the change process. CONTENT: I must overcome the denotation that change is a bad thing by demonstrating how the cost savings have a positive impact on overall margins.

Case Analysis #2 "Verizon Is Creating a Culture that Focuses on Shareholder Value" Kevin Keating Using the competing values framework as a point of reference, it would appear that Verizon’s current organizational culture is a clan. One reason for concluding this would be the fact is that Verizon has invested the time and the resources to educate the workforce. By having the Learning and Development Organizations support each business unit( Management: A Practical Introduction, Kinicki/Williams McGraw Hill ,”Management in Action” page 257), it is training its people to increase the number of subject matter experts within the corporation. Furthermore, by having multiple skill sets its employees should find it easier to communicate, collaborate and, therefore, find it easier to come to a consensus on any given assignment or problem. Verizon is moving toward a combination of Adhocracy and Market Cultures.
At the next full assessor meeting, I will have the opportunity to make an impression on the team as I am planning to put on a training session that I will be leading. This will give them the opportunity to react to my leadership skills and express any differences of ideas or feelings and opinions. These are all to be expected at this stage of the team building. It is hoped that the norming stage will be a natural progression through the team building with everyone agreeing the mutual aims and objectives of the Company and working as one to ensure the continued growth of the business.
Leadership and the Graduate Nursing Role Leadership and the Graduate Nursing Role My survey results indicate that my leadership style is participative. This result fits me well in my beliefs because I always encourage input from group members and take their opinions into consideration but make the final decision myself. According to definition of Lewin’s leadership style (as cited by Cherry, n.d.), it is to accept input from one or more group members when making decisions and solving problems, but the leader retains the final say when choices are made. Group members tend to be encouraged and motivated by this style of leadership. Input from group members with specialized knowledge and expertise provides a more complete basis for decision-making and hence this leadership style often leads to more effective and accurate decisions.
Further, health care teams should be from the correct mix of employees from both organizations, even though they may present resistance to areas of change. Still, the manager should observe and interpret the resistance as positive feedback. Employee resistance is a form of communication that could improve and redesign the implementation of change within the organization. After the merger of the organizations, the new organization will have a new look in terms of systems and shape. Additionally, the community will have full access to all the resources under one health care system.
