HIT strategic planning refers to the process of incorporating IT in healthcare, and giving priority to requests for information technology. Statement of Institution Goals/ Objectives For any organization to succeed, whether it is in the healthcare sector or not it has to have specific and appropriate goals and objectives (White & Griffith, 2010). My organization has many goals and objectives. For one, as it delivers its mission as a healthcare provider, one goal of my organization is to provide high quality healthcare which we are doing by utilizing all the information and data necessary to improve our organization. Another goal is to provide compassionate customer service as we will be mindful of their preferences, their perceptions and their experiences of the kind of services we offer to them.

One objective is to utilize good leadership to attract employees, develop and retain them. We also intend to increase organizational awareness so as to deliver focused services. The next thing is to develop the organization by offering training services to the employees. We also want to harness technology for both the staff and the patients. The objectives are facilitating WIFI; having innovative technology that will help us develop and promote efficiency and technology that supports both virtual and remote working. Next, I have to assess whether the application is in good technical condition, as well as the risks associated with it. Specification for Overall Architecture and Infrastructure For the Health Information infrastructure and architecture there are many specifications. First of all, starting at the application level there are the Electronic Medical Prescribing, Computerized Provider Order Entry, Electronic Documentation and Interface Engines.

When it comes to the communication level on the other hand there are Messaging standards which include HL7, ADT, X12, ASTM and so forth (Architecture of Health IT, 2017). At the process level there are Health Information Exchange, HIPAA security and the Master Patient Index. Software development is the first thing and as it continues, data is recorded in the background. After that implementation is done, where the software is taken through a test run to check whether it functions well. If any bugs or errors are encountered, they are immediately fixed. The last step is maintenance which will be done occasionally and software upgrades can be scheduled as well.

The first thing to consider in the staffing plan is how the human resource is distributed. Next, I will assess workload peaks and when workload is less. After doing all this I will determine how the implementation of the HIT might lead to shortages of staff hence know whether the organization will have to hire more human resource to handle the new technology. An important thing is to select or hire a team to handle the project (Kerzner & Kerzner, 2017). Specifications of the project like software development for instance will require experts in IT to implement. HIT management and staff planning, which are crucial to the strategic plan have been discussed as well. Lastly, the paper has briefly discussed resource requirements and this include capital, assets and the human resource.
