health care

Identify industries outside of health care that have deployed innovative management techniques, operational practices, or technology to improve their workforce.

Identify best practices and determine which could be implemented to improve the workforce for a specific health care service, facility, or other health sector-related occupation.

Write a 350- to 525-word article that explains how a specific management technique, operational practice, or technology can be used to improve a specific health care workforce.

Publish the article on your own social media account (e.g.,  LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.) or post it on a health care message board of your choice.

Include a citation of the article in your assignment.

Cite at least 3 reputable references to support your assignment (e.g., trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality).

health care

In order to evaluate the current state of health care and make effective and important improvements in patient quality and safety, it is critical to identify meaningful performance measures. It is important that these measures can be applied in the same way in similar health care institutions, wherever they are. As noted in your course text, there are three types of performance measures used to evaluate health care: structure, process, and outcome. In this discussion, you create and evaluate effective measures and apply them to the case study you identified in Week 1.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the Learning Resources, specifically Chapters 3 and 4 in your Course Text, Introduction to Healthcare Quality Management, to find examples related to performance measures and how to present the data collected.

Post a brief description of three different performance measures you would create (one each for structure, process, and outcome) that could be applied to the case study you identified in Week 1. Then, indicate the types of data you would need to collect to support the measures and how you would analyze and present that data. Finally, identify improvements you expect might result from your analysis.

Support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and/or additional sources, as appropriate. Your citations must be in APA format. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure your in-text citations and reference list are correct.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.

THIS WAS MY CASE STUDY IN WEEK 1

In 2013 the woman was diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia after the tests ordered by Gayed. The disease is an overgrowth of the uterine lining which is a signal of cancer. The doctor then performed endometrial ablation. The operations are reportedly negative since it destroys all the uterus layers. After five years, the woman returned to the hospital and was diagnosed with uterus cancer. According to health reports, it is unprofessional to perform ablation on hyperplasia women. The procedure increases the chances of cancerous cells development which leads to cancer (Davey, 2018).

Assignment Description

The most effective impact of investment in health care will come from effective management and policy. From this position, discuss the following:

  • Discuss the evolution of the U.S. health care system and how both the development of policy and the management requirements have been influenced by traditions and values.
  • Discuss the influence of the changing needs of the labor force due to increased technology, the aging of America, and various economic factors (including aging workforce, cost of turnover, cost of education and training, and so forth) with a focus on health care administration.
  • Discuss the 3 approaches to management and policy (systems, critical, and public interest) as they relate to the management perspective in health care.
Instructor’s Comments:

Students should discuss the evolution of the U.S. health care system, how this has affected policy development, and how styles of management affect the operation of health care organizations including an aging workforce, cost of employee turnover, and how technology affects quality of staff as well as the effects of systems, critical policies, and public interest on successful management.

This is a broad topic, however, try to focus primarily on policies that have been created by the government such as how health insurance has evolved, to include Medicare and Medicaid.
