Project management is actually a tool for organizations to set the new goals and objectives. With the help of effective project management, an organization may not only ensure the successful analysis of the problem but also draw the design for a project to replace problems.
Project management in the term of the healthcare industry is also having complex nature because it includes the involvement of human and IT systems (Gido and Clements 2014). In this context, this research report describes the issues related to IT project that can be faced by a healthcare organization in implementing the project of Telehealth to provide healthcare services to the people in the remote areas. This research report analyses the issues faced by the healthcare organization with the help of a hypothetical example. After this, it analyzes the issues related to IT project with the help of the project management theories that explain the criteria which should have to follow by the healthcare organization to ensure successful implementation of the Telehealth in a successful manner. This research report also uses a case study of NHS that is engaged in the similar project development to provide some recommendations that can help the hypothetical organization to implement the IT project without any issue.

Overview of Case Organization
XYZ is a healthcare organization that is situated in the metropolitan city of the UK. This organization has many departments to run its clinical business. To run the caring activities in an effective manner, it has used some computers but these are not inter-related. Due to this reason, the manual entry is also used by the clinical staff of the hospital. Further, the available caring staff uses Smartphone based application to connect with the patients. Through this way, they deliver important information to patients, get information from patients. With the help of this method, the hospital does not only reduce the workload but also manage the flow of the patients. But the demand of the caring services in the nea
y areas increases the pressure on the organization owner to expand the business and reach some remote areas, where the death-rate is high due to the lack of the caring services. In this context, the owner of the hospital has planned to use Telehealth system to fulfill the needs of patients as this method helps employees to get proper guidance from the doctors without going anywhere. Further, the organization has a capable project management team which is engaged in the regular development of the IT infrastructure of the organization. It is also strong in financial areas.
Identified Issues
The healthcare industry is seeing drastic growth in the technology advancement (Koutoukidis, Stainton and Hughson 2017 and Cashman and Shelly 2009). But the regular advancement in the technology does not allow the majority of healthcare companies to develop the operations to grab the opportunities and achieve the growth (Dennis, Wixom and Roth 2008). This is because that any problem related to the IT project may affect the entire efforts of the nursing staffs and organization (Fo
ester and Griffiths 2015) and they may not achieve the outcome after the implementation of the related IT projects. In the context of the Telehealth project, followings are some problems that are related to IT and healthcare organizations may face:
Integration Issues:
The healthcare industry is seeing drastic growth in the technology advancement due to the need to make improvement in the availability of the healthcare facilities in the remote areas, where the general healthcare facilities are not present or not possible to serve. But when the new technology releases, sometimes they do not match with the existing technology of the organization (Xu 2008). In this situation, the project management team of the organization needs to new entry of the storage data (Heldman 2005). But the storage of the data at the different place may cause inefficiencies. Such issues explain that the project planning was not so good that give a place for the IT issue.
Backup Recovery Challenges:
IT projects in the healthcare industry helps in the data storage. Due to this, they can create the patient's history which allows them to provide the best caring facilities. In this context, the issue related to the backup and recovery of the data is a bigger challenge to the project team.
