UMGC WK 4 Development of EHR Implementation & Medical System Project

Question Description

I’m working on a health & medical project and need an explanation to help me understand better.

Step 2: Development of Project Charter (due week 4 by Tuesday mid-night).

The first and the foremost thing in any project management is development of the project charter, a document that officially starts a project and provides a reference for the future as well as a direction from start to end. A Project Charter contains objective statement of a project, describes key project goals, lists key stakeholders, and enumerates roles and responsibilities of project team members. Thus, your supervisor asked to develop a project charter to formally initiate the EHR project. The Project Charter document should comprise:

Title of the Project – EHR Implementation Phase I

Project Objective – why you want to undertake the project? What are the anticipated benefits?

Project Goals – what are you trying to accomplish?

Stakeholders – who will benefit from the project?

Project Team – Project Managers and Project Steering Committee; their roles n responsibilities.

This step of the project should comprise 3-5 APA formatted pages, excluding the Cover and Reference pages.

Your supervisor also advised you to read these articles before proceeding with this step:
