In healthcare and government settings, successful information and systems management planning involves an enterprise wide approach assessing people, process and technology. They cannot be considered separately or managed in silos. Daniel’s approach follows the steps of organizational assessment, system analysis and design, testing, implementation and project management.

This planning and implementation philosophy assumes that:


Every clinic, practice or hospital is a unique organization requiring a customized solution. Momentum towards adoption of the HIT / HIE solution happens one clinic, practice and hospital at a time.


Every healthcare entity or government agency must go through its own unique stages of development in order to reach its organizational potential and achieve stability.


Organizational efficiencies and clinical quality outcomes are dependent upon subordinate levels of organizational stability being achieved before the entity can advance to more advanced HIT / HIE applications.

Stage Development

Understanding what stage of development an organization is in is critical before introducing more workflow changes and new technology.

HIT / HIE Adoption

Each enterprise moves through predictable stages of HIT / HIE adoption in their own way and at their own pace.


All strategic information systems planning and subsequent IT systems exist to support the strategic plan, an optimal clinical or operational workflow and profitability, margin or productivity goals.
