ALL PARTS HAVE TO BE COMPLETED

Part 1 300-400 words

As you begin to consider your career goals, it is important to clarify your specific needs and interests. In most instances, you cannot get the job you want if you are not clear about what you are searching for as well as the types of jobs for which you qualify. With this in mind, discuss the following:

  • Why did you decide to go into health care?
  • What job titles have you considered?
  • What skills and abilities would you like to use in your day-to-day work?
  • What type of health care setting do you imagine yourself working in?

Part 2 4-5 pages

Part 1

This week, you will begin by conducting research on two (2) health care administration positions you are interested in and answer the following questions using Careeronestop.org. Careeronestop.org is a site created by the U.S. Department of Labor that will allow you to dig deeper into a variety of health care positions. For more information about searching for positions, view the tutorial below.

  • Give a description of the job and typical job duties.
  • What type of health care setting would this person work in (e.g., hospital, retirement home, insurance company)?
  • What skills are needed to be successful in this position?
  • What qualities are needed to succeed in this position?
  • What certifications and education are needed for this position?
  • What technology knowledge is needed for this position?
  • How many years’ experience is required for this position?
  • What is the typical salary for this position?

Part 2

To answer the questions below, you will need to first review three (3) advertised job descriptions you most likely want based on your research—using a job board, such as this one—for a position that you could realistically get after you graduate with your current level of experience, skills, and education. These jobs do not have to be in your geographic area, but make sure the descriptions are detailed enough to understand the requirements (e.g., provide job duties and qualifications) and that they match your current level of experience. Have these job descriptions in front of you as you answer the questions below. For more information about searching for jobs, view the tutorial below.

  • Name the three (3) titles you found on this Web site.
  • What skills do you possess that are needed to be successful in each position, and what skills do you need to develop?
  • How can you develop the skills that you do not currently possess?
  • Do you have the work experience needed for each position? If not, what can you do to gain this experience while obtaining your degree?

Part 3

Lastly, you will choose a health care organization to study over the course of the term. You may select any health care facility you wish (e.g., long-term care, hospital, home care, ambulatory surgery, physician practice, etc.). Once you have chosen your facility, examine its organizational structure. Identify and discuss the following characteristics of your organization:

  • What is the mission statement of this organization?
  • What patient population does this organization serve?
  • What interests you about this particular organization?
  • What skills and experience do you feel you can contribute to the success of this organization?

Note: Use APA style to cite at least 2 scholarly sources.

Part 3 400-600 words

There has been much debate over whether or not being a leader and a manager is the same thing.

  • What do you feel are the most important qualities that a manager must possess to be effective?
  • What do you feel are the most important qualities for a leader to possess to be effective?
  • Do you feel that a person can be both a leader and a manager, or are they mutually exclusive roles? Why?

Be sure to support your answer with properly cited references. Note: Use APA style to cite at least 2 scholarly sources.

Part 4 3-4 pages

As the manager of your chosen facility from Week 1, you have been tasked with creating an organizational chart that demonstrates all of the employees in the facility.

  • Create an organizational chart for three departments in your selected health care facility.
  • Identify two examples of the primary responsibilities that each employee on your chart has as a part of his or her job description.
    • The duty list should follow the organizational chart as a separate part of your project.

Note: Use APA style to cite at least 2 scholarly sources.

Part 5 400-600 words

Assume that you are the manager in your chosen health care facility in the medical records department. Your boss has asked you to assist him in preparing a talk to the other department employees on the most important ethical issues they might face in working in medical records.

  • Identify two of the biggest ethical issues that medical records employees may face, and discuss why these issues are so important to be aware of.
  • Be sure to provide a properly referenced rationale for your choices.

Part 6 2-3 pages

Using the same facility you chose in Week 1, construct a policy that details how employee performance appraisals will be conducted in the organization. In your policy, be sure to address the following criteria at a minimum:

  1. Details of the appraisal process
  2. The frequency of performance appraisals
  3. The employees involved in the process

Keep in mind that the type of organization, as well as regulations, may impact the type of criteria that the employee is appraised on.

Part 7 400-600- words

As a leader within a healthcare organization, whether large or small, you need to understand the governance structure of the organization and your role.

  • What are the three components of the governance structure of a healthcare organization?
  • What is the difference between corporate governance and clinical governance? Are they independent or co-dependent?
  • What are the main areas of organizational performance oversight for the governing body of a healthcare organization and what tools are used to monitor performance?
  • Imagine yourself in the role of a department head, what would your responsibilities be in the governance of the organization?

Part 8 12-15 powerpoints

Healthcare managers must deal with three components of healthcare delivery: access to care, quality of care and the cost of care. With the move to a value based care model from fee for service, there is a stronger connection between quality of care and payment. Organizations that accredit healthcare facilities such as The Joint Commission focus on quality standards. These organizations may also hold what is called “deemed status”. This means that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) will accept accreditation of a healthcare facility by an accrediting organization such as The Joint Commission as meeting the Conditions of Participation (CoPs). Healthcare organizations that meet the CoPs are eligible for reimbursement for the care of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. Thus, the standards for accreditation include those that align with the CoPs. Managers must ensure that their organization meets these standards.

Prepare a PowerPoint Presentation of 12-15 slides, not including title page and reference page, with 150-300 words of speaker notes. Review the CMS Conditions of Participation for the type of health care organization that you chose in Week 1 and that you have used throughout this course.

  • Identify at least two sections of the CoPs (e.g., patient rights, medical record services).
  • Explain how these sections are implemented in your selected health care facility.
  • Compare and discuss how these sections might be implemented differently in another type of health care facility.
  • Make recommendations for how your healthcare facility could make improvements to ensure meeting the CoPs.
  • In addition to the two CoPs that you have chosen, describe the Emergency Preparedness CoP, and how your health care facility will implement this standard.

You can research the CoPs for your chosen health care organization in the Code of Federal Regulations at 24CFR utilizing the links below:

Note: Use APA style to cite at least 2 scholarly sources.

Part 9

Review and reflect on the knowledge you have gained from this course. Based on your review and reflection, write 300-400 words on the following:

  • What do you feel are the most important responsibilities of a healthcare manager?
  • What were you most surprised or interested to learn in this course?
  • What were the most compelling topics learned in this course?
  • What topics will you continue to research and expand your knowledge?

Part 10

An integral part of the strategic planning process is to gather information. One method of doing this is by conducting a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis. Now that you have reviewed your chosen standards, you will examine the impact of both internal and external forces on your chosen facility.

  • Conduct a SWOT analysis for your chosen facility that examines the forces that may affect the facility.
  • Be sure to pay particular attention to the issues of financing, productivity, and marketing, as well as others you feel have the potential to impact the facility.
  • Present your SWOT analysis using a standard SWOT analysis matrix.
  • Below your SWOT analysis, identify and discuss at least one issue from each section of your SWOT analysis in further detail in an effort to analyze why you feel the chosen issue may have the greatest impact on the facility.
    • When discussing your weakness and threats, be sure to include:
      • 12 goals that should be created to improve in these areas
      • A brief description (12 paragraphs) of a plan of action to improve in these areas that includes how you will accomplish the goals that you set in the first bullet point. In an action plan, there is usually a time frame, steps to how you plan to meet the goals you set, and how you will measure the goals.

Note: Use APA style to cite at least 2 scholarly sources.
