Addressing issues in health care | Healthcare
The purpose of this assignment is to examine how to identify, prioritize, and address a potential problem within the health care environment.
Write a 1,200 to 1,400-word paper that examines how to address a problem within the health care environment, including risk mitigation and implementation of new compliance requirements.
- Describe how would you go about establishing that a potential concern is a problem that should be further investigated. Discuss any specific triggering event you should use in order to initiate the continuous quality improvement process.
- Explain what tools would be utilized to identify the problem, develop the solution, track the implementation, and summarize the findings (i.e., benchmarking).
- Once you have established that the identified concern is an issue worth addressing, discuss how you would go about prioritizing this problem compared to other problems. Consider the scarcity of resources, labor costs, capital investment needs, the approval process within your organization, and where you are in the budget cycle.
- Discuss who would be considered stakeholders or vested parties and how you intend to mitigate risk when implementing new compliance requirements.
You are required to reference a minimum of five peer-reviewed articles to support your argument.
