Week 4 Discussion
“Strengths and Weaknesses of Outsourcing Information Technology” Please respond to the following:
- From the e-Activity, create an argument that highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of outsourcing the information technology responsibilities for a health care organization. Support your response with a list of at least three (3) functions that can or cannot be attained in house.
- Discuss the key risks to a health care organization that fails to allocate sufficient support and resources to a newly implemented health care information system. Next, propose one (1) strategy to mitigate the risks in question. Provide a rationale to support your response.
NOTE: Class please remember that you “must” answer both areas in your main response and should be in one response, not two separate responses. Additionally, your discussion threads should be written in your own words. You cannot copy and paste the material from the web or from an article or online library. This would be academic dishonesty as you are not critically analyzing the materials and then paraphrasing, therefore not critically thinking on the material. Per the expectations, your writing cannot be no more than 20% quoted or direct comments from source. This means that 80% of the writing must be in your own words and if you directly quote then you must include an APA citation for the quote. If you copy and paste directly from the web or from another source, your post will receive a zero and you may be referred to the academic integrity office. So please, read the chapter material, complete your internet searches for the e-activities, then you that material to answer the discussion threads. Again your first response has to be at least 150 words AND it should not take you more than 250 words to cover each area. That is not a page, it is only a paragraph with 8 to 10 sentences…NOT a page.
