Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is a leading education and research entity with over 11,000 employees and a firm dedication to improving human health. OHSU, located in Portland, is Oregon’s only academic healthcare center. A public corporation since 1995, with a long history of providing service to the citizens of the state, OHSU is a 96,000 square mile campus with students, teachers and researchers in every corner of the state. Teaching, healing and discovery are the key comp onents of OHSU’s mission. In order to support this mission the organization supports a school of medicine, a school of dentistry, a school of nursing (supported by four regional campuses), and a school of science and engineering.

As a cornerstone to improving the educational reach of the institution, in order to attract the best students, and to improve efficiencies in provision of internal training OHSU is evaluating the implementation of a standardized courseware tool that can be used by both faculty members and administrative, application, and compliance units within OHSU. This document outlines relevant project selection strategies identified in a literature review as well as in interviews with users at OHSU and industry experts.

In addition to general project selection review I have developed a matrix that identifies product features by application to facilitate the vendor selection process. This document has been prepared in an effort to assemble all relevant components of a courseware selection process at OHSU. It should be considered a work-in -progress as various components identified in this document would be modified as the project moves forward and additional information is obtained.

This presentation will review the methods of project selection utilized by OHSU as well as the functional and technical requirement identification process.
