Toolbox of Health IT

If you ever have the chance to hear Lee Lambert, founder and CEO of Lambert Consulting Group, Inc.—jump at it! Lee is one of a those rare visionaries who formulated and helped found the Project Management Institute (PMI).  The PMI provides best practices for project management in any domain or business.  You may say—“this does not apply to me.”  As Lee puts it

“If you have ever completed a project from start to finish in a structured way—you have used project management.”

Lee has over four decades of expert project management experience and you can tell it from his training sessions.  He adds humor and funny anecdotes that oddly motivate the entire audience to return –and stay awake—after lunch!  He has that rare ability to stops you dead in your tracks with what seems like an obvious point.  The odd part is—his points are often very straightforward and logical—even common sense.  I would like to think I just need reminded.

I recently attended one of Lee’s events for project managers (PM) and one of his comments fit perfectly with the concept of health information technology (HIT).  I had to share (paraphrased):

“We have a toolbox full of devices for great project management—and we need to utilize them.  However, we also have to realize that “tools” never completed a project. Humans do. “   

Such is the case for HIT and all of the innovative devices being created by the technology community.  It is only a tool.  As the HIT toolbox fills, let’s hope someone always reminds us that it’s the humans in health care who are making the difference.
