PROJECT BACKGROUND:

Information Technology Services has adopted an accelerated approach to improving our IT infrastructure. The approach, known as “646,” focuses on:

  • The six most critical infrastructure issues
  • For the four most-in-need divisions (Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Kentucky)
  • Within six months

KentuckyOne Health was among one of the first divisions chosen, based on the extent of our stability issues and the impact on revenue. It also supports a decision by clinical leadership to prioritize ITS infrastructure work for improved electronic health record performance.

While 646 won’t immediately solve all challenges, we expect fewer outages, elimination of slowness and freezing, and improved user experience.

For more detailed information on the six critical issues, visit the ITS Transformation page on Inside CHI. Submit your questions to ITSTransformation@catholichealth.net.
