Chapter 2: Linkage of IT Strategy to Organizational Strategy

Chapter 2

Linkage of IT Strategy to Organizational Strategy

Information technology can support and at times be a critical contributor to effecting organizational strategies. Efforts to improve care quality can require electronic health records (EHRs) and databases to analyze patterns of care. The management of a population of patients with multiple chronic diseases may point to the need for disease registries, health maintenance reminder logic, and Web sites that enable patients to record data and obtain support for the management of their health.

Information technology can enable the organization to consider new elements and aspects of its strategy. Approaching Web 2.0-based communities of patients with a chronic disease might be a means to reduce the costs of recruitment for clinical trials. Radio-frequency ID tags might enable better tracking of capital assets, reducing asset loss and decreasing productivity loss due to clinicians searching for misplaced equipment.
