TECH 50800 Project Healthcare IT Asset Management Analyze Phase Date: 11/13/2013 Team members: Angela Hutson
Brief Review of Project Charter Healthcare reform is forcing organizations to significantly reduce both operating expense and capital expense. In support of this, the IS organization will be conducting an Asset Management Project. The issues to be addressed are inventory waste, over-production, additional cost for repurchasing items not locatable, and slow break/fix response time. Note: this project was selected as a goal by senior leadership for the corporation.
