One of the items the PMOGA Strategic Healthcare group is doing is penning whitepapers to help educate and communicate about healthcare project management. The first white paper they authored is, “New Ways of Working in the New Normal Post-Covid 19”. To learn more and contribute to the group you can visit the group website, We also had a great discussion on the uniqueness of project management in the healthcare industry. Mickey shared, “the impact of what they do is magnified because at the end of that It service is a potential patient that you can adversely impact, as opposed to making a mistake on some other type of industry where maybe you can go back and correct the dimensions of whatever product you have. In healthcare, it's not a product, it's a person.”
