A Matrix of Skills and Job Descriptions for Health IT Staff

The following document is intended to assist health center staff create new job descriptions and/or modify existing job descriptions to more clearly incorporate Health IT and quality-related responsibilities.  The matrix provides responsibilities across three categories of roles:  Medical Leadership, Quality, and Health IT.  It differentiates these responsibilities based on typical job functions (e.g., Quality Improvement, Compliance, Meaningful Use).   

This tool is helpful in two distinct ways. First, the matrix can provide language to modify existing job descriptions to ensure that for each function, responsibilities are articulated across all appropriate health center roles. Second, the matrix can help an organization that has determined the need for additional Quality and Health IT staff, such as a Data Analyst or Quality Coordinator.  The tool can assist in determining which functions will be incorporated into the new role, and then developing the job description from the chosen functions.
