How do we conduct a readiness assessment?
When choosing to implement health IT, health center administrators should already have a general understanding of their current environment from a readiness perspective. Tools to assess readiness can be used to help answer and address any residual questions. By completing a readiness assessment, health centers are taking a major step in identifying where current gaps exist and what steps need to be taken to mitigate these gaps. Several of these tools require assessments of health centers, which include culture, leadership models, staff aptitude with computer applications, existing resources and IT infrastructure, to help guide future decisions regarding health IT adoption and implementation.
