IT Alignment and Strategic Planning Meadow Hills Hospital

    READ THE ATTACHED CASE STUDY

    For this paper, I want you to answer the three case study questions (also shown below).  As part of your response, I want you to conduct additional research on the challenges of developing an IT Strategy and how you as the CEO would overcome them. Write a 5 page paper on the following questions:

    1)  What steps should the CEO take to develop an IT strategy for the organization?

    2)  Are their unique risks to the ability of Meadow Hills Hospital to develop and implement an IT strategy?

    3) Meadow Hills appears to have been successful despite years without an IT Strategy. Why is this?

    Papers require the following:

    Cover page – Make sure it is in APA format.

    Abstract – None required.

    Introduction – Describes the purpose of the paper.  Ideal length is four (4) sentences.  Introduce the topic and preview the structure of the main body (discussion) that follows.  It’s OK to start with:  “The purpose of this paper is…”.

    Main body – Provide the analysis of your research.  You can use subheadings to breakup the paragraphs if you wish, but it is not required.  Keep paragraphs relatively short–4-6 sentences each.  Don’t write long, run-on sentences.  Use transitions to make the narrative more engaging and to help he reader identify new points that you are bringing up.

    Conclusion – Like the introduction, should be four (4) sentences each.  Restate the thesis of the paper and briefly recap key issues covered.  Close with impact sentence to remind the reader of the importance of the topic.  It is OK to begin your concluding paragraph with:  “In conclusion…”.

    Reference page – You are encouraged to use outside references as well as your text.  References must be from established, credible, scholarly sources (no newspapers or news magazines) and a minimum of four (4) are required.  Make sure you review the APA guidance on proper reference page formatting.

    Cover page and reference page are NOT included in the page count.  Papers should include page numbers.  Most importantly–remember to follow the APA writing guidelines.
