We at Behavioral Information Systems, LLC are proud to announce that Jennifer Davis, Senior Consultant, has passed her Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification exam!
We’ve always excelled at managing complicated EHR projects at BIS, but now Jen has completed her certification after months of hard work and is officially recognized. Congratulations, Jen!
So let’s talk about why project management is so critical to a successful EHR project.
You may be used to managing projects yourself or with internal resources. You know your agency and business better than anyone and are the best person to make decisions when it comes to how the business is run.
However, even if you have years of experience under your belt, there may be times when hiring a project manager is necessary for implementing something new within your company.
A Project Manager is exactly what it sounds like: a person who manages projects.
A Project Manager’s job is to make sure that the project runs smoothly and is completed on time and under budget. If you’re implementing something new, such as a new technology or software system, then you need a Project Manager to make sure everything goes according to plan.
What is PMP Certification?
The PMP certification is a globally recognized credential that demonstrates an individual’s ability to apply project management knowledge, skills and practices. Becoming a PMP requires extensive project management training and experience. An official designation as a Project Management Professional (PMP) is obtained after passing a lengthy exam.
But Project Managers do more than just manage projects for the sake of getting them started and completed.
Project Managers can help you understand your goals, communicate them to others and make sure they are met. They can also minimize risks by helping you think through issues that may arise before they become problems.
They are responsible for making sure the project meets requirements, is on budget and schedule, and that risks are minimized.
Project Managers will also be involved in developing an action plan to address risks that could arise during the project.
In order to maintain these responsibilities well and make sure they’re met according to plan, it’s important to stay organized throughout the entire process. Project Managers excel at organization.
The Project Manager will ask questions to get a clear picture of your goals.
The Project Manager will also talk to team members to make sure they understand the project’s goals and requirements. The Project Manager can then use this information from all parties involved in order to plan out how the project will be implemented.
The Project Manager will use their knowledge about how various systems work together, as well as their knowledge about how different businesses operate, in order to determine what needs to happen for this new system or process rollout to be successful at your organization.
Then they will use their skills as a communicator to make sure all team members understand the project’s scope.
The Project Manager is the person who ensures that all parties understand each other, and that they’re on the same page in terms of what they’re doing.
As an example, let’s say you are implementing a new software. One person working on this project may not know how to handle certain technical issues involved with making the software work properly. The Project Manager will help with tracking, managing, and resolving these issues so that others can focus on their specific tasks without having to worry about anything else going wrong.
You need a Project Manager to ensure your business needs are met, in addition to understanding your vision and communicating it to all parties involved in the project.
Before you hire a Project Manager, it’s important to make sure they’re the right person for the job. Project managers should have a lot of experience, be able to communicate effectively with others, and be good listeners.
If you’re looking for someone who can help implement something new in your company or organization and ensure that your business needs are met (as well as understand your vision or goal), then hiring a project manager is probably what’s best for you.
