Develop Technical Strategy n Review the successes of others –Why did this succeed? n Review current internal capacity –Can we maintain this? n Plan for the future –Can we maintain this in five years?
Lessons Learned n Separate activities are linked activities n Not simple, low-cost, or short-term n Directness and persistence balanced with respect for organizational culture n Maintain the balance of scope, time, and resources n This is the means, not the end.
Lessons Learned Building a statewide integrated data system is like using the crust to cross a bed of hot lava: as long as you keep moving toward your goal and don’t step into anything too hot, you have to assume things are going OK.
Lessons Learned The Information Revolution differs from the Industrial Revolution in that the value of information increases with use. -- David Ross Center for Innovation in Health Information Systems All Kids Count Connections Meeting, Fall 2002
