First of all, the prioritization of IT projects should not be the responsibility of the CIO. Your IT organization is a service department and they normally don’t like to say “no” to projects or create delays.
A process of Project Portfolio Management (PPM) helps organizations define what is a project, how to approve based on patient care and regulatory requirements, and how to balance the prioritization with projects in motion and the project backlog.
We have a well defined methodology for PPM that will empower the clinical and business leadership to take an active role in a balanced project scorecard for prioritization.
