How to Use
3. Record the tasks and resources to be used (e.g., names of individuals, committee, team, vendor) and period of time planned for the task.
1. Review the implementation plan supplied by the vendor, ideally with the vendors implementation specialist. Consider the tasks, resources, and timing,
and coordinate changes with the vendor.
2. Prepare to develop a project plan for your organization that reflects milestones from the vendor’s plan and all other tasks you need to perform. In some
cases, you may have to manage several vendors at one time (e.g., the HIT application vendor, a systems integrator who is writing your interfaces, a chart
conversion company, a data conversion company, a construction company, a telecommunications company, an implementation and training consultant).
Recording all project milestones from different vendors can help you track their progress as well as the dependencies among them (e.g., you can’t install
hardware without some construction being completed).
4. To use the Excel spreadsheet as a Gantt chart to track completion of each task, separate each task with a blank row and record the actual time; or
purchase Gantt chart utilities to create a Gantt chart from an Excel file.
Use this tool to review the implementation plan provided by the vendor, and prepare to develop a project plan for your organization that
reflects milestones from the vendor’s plan and all other tasks you need to perform.
