The first and the foremost thing in any project management is development of the project charter, a document that officially starts a project and provides a reference for the future as well as a direction from start to end. A Project Charter contains objectivestatement of a project, describes key project
, and enumerates roles and responsibilities of project team members. Thus, your supervisor asked to develop a project charter to formally initiate the EHR project. The Project Charter document should comprise:
Title of the Project– EHR Implementation Phase I
Project Objective – why you want to undertake the project? What are the anticipated benefits?
Project Goals – what are you trying to accomplish?
Stakeholders – who will benefit from the project?
Project Team – Project Managers and Project Steering Committee; their roles and responsibilities.
This step of the project should comprise 3-5 APA formatted pages, excluding the Cover and Reference pages.
Your supervisor also advised you to read these articles before proceeding with this step:
