In this video, project and change expert Bob McGannon discusses the number of project varieties that will be addressed in this course including healthcare facility construction or modification, delivery, or management process derivation and modification, information technology installation or modification and tool management. Additionally, learn about working in specific facilities in a healthcare project including hospitals, doctor's offices, and other specialized care facilities.
- Healthcare has been defined as the field concerned with the maintenance or restoration of health of the body or mind. This definition is broad, and so are the initiatives that can be considered healthcare projects. In this course, I'll discuss a number of project types under the banner of healthcare projects, but they all involve dealing with the processes or facilities that are part of the maintenance or restoration of health. Given that condition, there are a number of healthcare project varieties that we'll touch upon, including facility construction or modification, healthcare delivery or altering the management processes used in a medical environment, installing or modifying information technology systems, and tool management such as x-ray, or other advanced technical machinery.
The healthcare facilities in which these projects are delivered can also present specific challenges. So we'll discuss specific facilities including hospitals, doctors' offices, and specialized care facilities such as specific outpatient surgery facilities. Given the diversity of projects and facilities that are involved in healthcare projects, we won't engage in a deep dive in any project type. Instead, we'll talk about the notable issues and planning considerations you should focus on as you tackle your own healthcare projects.
- Managing healthcare project stakeholders
- Dealing with regulatory constraints
- Establishing milestones
- Assessing project risks
- Executing your healthcare project
