H. I.T. or Miss: Lessons Learned from Health Information Technology Implementations Jonathan Leviss, MD, Editor AHIMA

H. I.T. or Miss: Lessons Learned from Health Information Technology Implementation collects case studies of HIT implementations that didn’t go as planned, offering expert insight into key obstacles that must be overcome to leverage information technology and modernize and transform healthcare.

Historically, HIT projects have a very high failure rate. Health systems of all sizes learn—through trial and error—the same lessons and best practices at a high cost, but those lessons and practices are rarely shared among healthcare organizations.

H. I.T. or Miss: Lessons Learned from Health Information Technology Implementation documents, catalogs, and shares key lessons from failed HIT implementations—lessons that all HIT project managers, informatics and technology health system leaders, hospital executives, policy makers, and service and technology providers must learn in order to succeed.
