A new monograph from the Center for Healthcare Governance examines the board's role in ensuring information technology supports a health care organization's overall strategic aims. Author Pam Arlotto, president and CEO of Maestro Strategies, provides a guide to help health care boards and executives align strategies, processes, IT and people to build new organizational capacity for clinical transformation. She provides a snapshot of where the health care field stands in implementing meaningful use of information technology, eight strategies to help boards develop a clear plan and evaluate progress toward accountable meaningful use, and questions to help boards assess their organization's progress.
