Project management is a common activity in healthcare. Not only do projects involve a change process, projects are also a necessary part of treating patients as technology, medications, and procedures are updated. However, project management is a specific set of tasks and key activities used to implement change. The project manager is in charge and generally works with the management team. For any change to succeed, however, strict adherence to goals, budget, and schedules is necessary to prevent loss. In this article, we will present a small project of implementing an Electronic Medical Record system in a small hospital. We will present the costs, schedule, variances, and some highlights about quality.
