[AISWorld] Request: Project Management Case Studies Involving Healthcare IS Topics

Here's a couple of things:

Using Project Management Methodology to Plan and Track Inpatient Care, Darren S. Kaufman, M.D., M.S., Journal on Quality and Patient Safety, Volume 31 Number 8, August 2005, p. 463 - 468

Two other cases that are really good, and could be used with a PM twist are:

*         Computerized Provider Order Entry at Emory Healthcare

*         Caregroup

Neither of these is specifically written about project management, but could serve as a rich basis for a discussion about PM.
I especially like the Emory case, because it is rich enough to get into stakeholder and organizational change / implementation and post-implementation review questions.

Another newer case that might be adapted in this way, especially given the current press and angst regarding Ebola, is

*         Roll-Out of Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Malaria in Swaziland (HBSP product GHD025-PDF-ENG)

I am teaching a Project Management course and I am looking for a case study for a healthcare IS topic.  This is a fourth year undergraduate level course.  I am very grateful for any recommendations.

As is customary, I will post a summary of responses.  Thank you in advance for your generous contributions.

With kind regards,
