Purchasing and implementing new software for Johns Hopkins Medicine just got easier.
IT@JH, under the direction of JHM leadership, developed the Software Intake Process form to collect and streamline software-based solution requests from all Johns Hopkins Medicine entities and departments — including:
- Individuals from The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation
- Affiliated hospitals
- Joint ventures
- Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Examples of technology that must use this process:
- New software proposal for a department, hospital, or enterprise-wide
- Adding functionality, upgrades, or integrations to an existing application
- New services added to an existing contract or with an existing vendor
- Professional services agreements associated with new software
Steps after submitting a SIP form:
- Health IT leaders review a request and assign an IT Project Manager if the request can move forward.
- IT Project Managers work with submitters to review options, alternatives, budget and resource plans and determine if an RFP is needed.
- The SIP Committee will meet bi-weekly to ensure projects are moving. Projects needing additional resources or integration may require leadership review (monthly).
- IT Project Manager works with submitters to ensure budget and contract are complete with quarterly check-ins until go-live.
The SIP process lights the pathway to implementation for Johns Hopkins Medicine software requests. Visit the Software Intake Process web page to learn more.
