DALLAS, TEXAS - CTG Health Solutions, (CTGHS) a leading health information technology (IT) consulting firm and a business unit of CTG, an IT solutions and services company, today announced the availability of the white paper, "Executive Dashboards: An Effective Tool for Managing Enterprise Project Risk." The white paper presents recommendations and steps for setting up executive dashboards to man­age electronic health record (EHR) implementation project issues or risks, and to deliver metrics for improved communica­tion, prioritization and remediation of project-related concerns.

Executive dashboards are well-established as valuable senior management reporting and monitoring tools. The white paper explains why project management of major healthcare information technology (IT) initiatives - particularly complex EHR implementations - can benefit from their use. Dashboards, along with comprehensive weekly progress/status reports, provide a current snapshot of defined processes to facilitate the identification and remedia­tion of existing issues and potentially occurring risks. The tool also helps better prioritize the resources, time and work necessary to manage an EHR project's critical challenges.

The white paper delineates a series of recommendations organizations must undertake to develop a successful user-friendly executive dashboard performance tool, including:

Five Project Risks That Get the Attention of Healthcare Executives. An effective executive dashboard must be built and presented in a way that is meaningful to healthcare executives, who respond strongly to project details impacting five high-risk categories: Patient care and safety, regulatory compliance, financial performance, retaining physician and patient market share, and market and enterprise growth.

Setting Up Executive Dashboards to Link Critical Project Management Issues to Larger Strategic and Operational Concerns. Oftentimes when a health enterprise implements a new EHR solution, the final result is a uniform electronic record across all facilities, begetting an erroneous belief of bringing standardization to all departments by default. The organization underestimates the large amount of time, effort and consensus necessary to standardize differing for­mats, documentation or organization of healthcare data. The executive dashboard can define corrective steps (time, scope, resources, and critical path) to remediate risks and associated issues.
