It’s coming close, our go-live date. 220 days. Someone calculated the go-live date to the exact minute – 7 months, 14 hours, and so many minutes. I prefer counting the days instead of the months. How am I feeling? I was feeling stressed but I am getting my work done and noticing our team progress.
Since my last update, the majority of the project team went on vacation for a week except for me. I had taken my vacation in early March. Last week, we had our kick-off for the Clinical Practice Model (CPM) at both hospitals. Overall, the kick-off went well, despite some last minute changes. We all work well under pressure and work well as a team.
The project team are helping the clinicians understand how CPM works. The Chief Nursing Officer explained her vision of the medical center and how the clinicians can help with the vision. We need everyone’s help in order for the CPM project to be successful.
Besides the CPM kick-off, our unit testing scripts are all written and integrated script writing began. Everyone is working very hard and is evident in everyone’s attitudes. Not that everyone is rude
or anything but I can see it in everyone’s faces. We all look tired especially at the end of the week. We are in Day 220/365. Next week is May and on May 2 it will exactly be 7 months until go-live.
