This is a CSIS 494 Field Experience paper about an internship in a healthcare organization called MercyHealth. My internship would be described as generalized. The paper will be mainly talking about the different aspects of IT and how they all come together to create progress, and cohesiveness in the organization. I had the opportunity to see different aspects of their IT department by sitting down in project meetings. I was able to job shadow multiple staff from admins to PC techs to network engineers. I was able to see first-hand how an organization, and IT respond to disaster, and how they adapt and come up with a recovery/contingency plan. I interned in MercyHealth the summer of 2018 starting in May 7 and ended in Aug 3. Perhaps this paper could shed light on how IT operate in a healthcare organization.
