Charter

The Cross-Domain Strategic Planning (CDSP) Work Group was formed by the Domain Coordination Committee (DCC) in response to the IHE International Board's request for a

"first-cut" look at an IHE-wide strategic plan, taken from a "Domain perspective". While the Board is very interested in helping to guide IHE as an organization, it felt that

it initially needed to understand each domain's view on a strategic future, with some overarching recommendations, before it could mindfully engage in the process.

This initiative is being managed by the CDSP Workgroup in the following phases:

  • Phase 1 - understanding current strategic planning processes, with an attempt to harmonize across domains (Complete)
  • Phase 2 - articulation and documentation of each domain's strategic vision, looking forward 3-5 years (in progress)
  • Phase 3 - harmonization of domain-specific responses, with analysis and recommendations for the IHE International Board

Deliverables

  • A Report outlining a Domain perspective on IHE's Strategic Vision, including:
  • a compendium of individual domains' strategic plan, and
  • a cross-domain consolidated strategic vision, with analysis and recommendations

Timeline

  • 1 Oct 2011: Formal request issued to domain planning committees for strategic planning input
  • 1-15 Oct 2011: Domain follow-ups and iterative communication
  • 1 Dec 2011: Responses from domains due
  • Nov 2011: face-to-face meeting of IHE International Board @ RSNA: Set general expectations for report presentation in February, with discussion and feedback.
  • Feb 2012: face-to-face meeting of IHE International Board @ HIMSS12: Present and discuss report and recommendations, create action plan


Appendix & Supporting Information

A by-product of this work group is the development of a shared strategic vision to guide development activities in each respective domain.

  • The uniformity of processes and work output across IHE domain committees, including suggestions of methods for improvement, have yielded the following areas of discussion:
  • Coordination of committee work items to avoid redundancy and conflict
  • Uniformity of work output and consistent use of constructs
  • Definition and refinement of processes to lead to better outcomes
  • Potential actions to help address these issues include:
  • Enhance education materials and process, including Wiki, Webinars and templates
  • Expanded oversight for IHE International Board and/or establishment of new oversight body to enforce compliance (peer volunteer group or executive/expert review board)
  • Expand domain liaison relationships to strengthen links among domains, notably between medical specialty domains and IT Infrastructure and Patient Care Coordination domains
  • Requirement of early, substantive, cross-domain review of supplement work proposals (could use Domain Coordination Committee)
  • Perform strategic review of existing portfolio of profiles and identify gaps and overlap (for possible consolidation)
