The governing board of Middleville hired a consulting company to evaluate its strategic performance, specifically in the areas of Human Resources, Information Technology, Financing, and Marketing. As part of the consultant’s evaluation, several leaders of Middleville’s units were asked their perspective of the organization’s performance.

 

You are working for the consultant. Your job is to identify the issues from the response that should be considered further by the consultant team and possibly discussed with the governing board and the CEO. The firm has a rule, “Never offer a criticism or negative finding without suggesting how the client organization can correct it,” so you must indicate what sort of correction you would recommend as part of your list. Because you know there were about two (2) dozen other interviews, you decide you should rank your issues in importance, to make sure the most critical are discussed.

 

Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you: Explain the governing board’s role in these strategic initiatives, determining its responsibility and involvement. Evidence-based management means that operational and strategic decisions are made based upon the evidence that goals and objectives are actually being met. Quantitative measurements must be identified and measured. This data is then used to evaluate the HCO’s performance. Name three (3) performances Middleville can use to measure its success in providing quality healthcare to the community, and identify quantifiable, measureable indicators that can be used to do so. Explain the importance of each performance measurement. Given the statistics of Middleville and its two (2) competitors provided in Table 1, recommend to the HCO what areas it should focus on to maintain its competitive market share as well as continue to provide healthcare to the community in the 21st century. Some of Middleville’s Board members are very interested in pursuing advanced technology systems over the next five (5) years, while others are concerned about the enormous expense and need assurance that the investment in technology will be worthwhile. In both monetary and process terms, describe the costs and benefits associated with implementing EMR and associated health data systems. Lay out a plan for how various systems can be implemented. Middleville has faced many challenges in recruiting and retaining nurses and other clinical employees. The economy has hit the area very hard and budgetary limitations have reduced the amount of money available for salary increases. The Board knows it needs to provide other benefits to their valued employees. Provide at least two (2) suggestions to Human Resources to promote employee satisfaction and, therefore, retain experienced personnel. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:

a.      Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.

b.     Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.

c.      Include a reference page. Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.

 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

 Examine how healthcare management concepts and theories are applied to critical issues in healthcare organizations. Analyze the critical management issues, purpose, functions, and performance measures of different departments within healthcare organizations. Explain how public policy has shaped the development of the U.S. healthcare system. Use technology and information resources to research issues in health services organization management.

   Investing can be risky, the wrong decisions or miss calculations can cost any organization money. A thorough and careful analysis must be made before any investment should be made. One of the first things to consider is the objective or goal that is trying to be attained, this decision should still be in line with the goals of the organization. Next, identify the pros and cons of the investment, what are the risks and what are the profits that could be made. One of the key decisions is ensuring that any investments that are considered are within the budget limits of the organization.  

   Before committing to the investment there is some key information that needs to be analyzed. Identifying trends which can help increase support from investors, help with marketing strategies, or help identify risks. An estimate of the project’s cash flow that is expected should be analyzed, this covers the capital outlays, operating cash flow and the ending cash flow. Another thing to consider is the life span of the project. A forecast of the project’s costs and revenues should be made to assist with budgeting (Gapenski, 2016).

“Capital investment is a sum of money provided to a company to further its business objectives. The term also can refer to a company’s acquisition of long-term assets such as real estate, manufacturing plants, and machinery” (Investopedia). When it comes to making an investment, there are many types of decisions that need to be made. One important aspect is to make sure that enough time is spent on weighing the pros and cons of the investment. Making a bad investment can lead to loss in money for the company and depending on how big the investment is, can lead to the collapse of the company. More decisions that need to be made before an investment are as follows: (Capital Investment Decisions). Identification of a project Definition of a project and screening Analysing and accepting Implementation Monitoring Post audit

The kinds of information needed before deciding on a capital investment project are as follows: (1) Suppose a major piece of equipment such as an x-ray machine breaks down. It would be a good capital investment to Replace the machine then to loose the money that is made from the x-ray machine. (2) The same can be said if the same x-ray machine need updates or some form of TLC. It would be a good capital investment to make the updates needed on the device. (3) Finally, suppose the same company wants to add a second x-ray machine to expand their business. The company will have to weigh the pros and cons as to whether that will be a good investment.

Example Bandwidth calculations

 

 

The bandwidth is defined as the:

Power- ½ power points

Voltage- .707 *Vmax

Current- .707*Imax

db- 3 db down from the max db level

 

f (Hz)                                  Gain            Gain(Db)

    

          1                 56mV          320mV        5.71            15.1

          10               64mV          320mV        5                 14

          100             112mV        1.28V          11.42          21.15

          1k               112mV        1.28V          11.42          21.15

          10k             160mV        1.20V          7.5              17.5

          100k                                                  3                 9.54

         

If the above data were taken the bandwidth  would be at:

Since these are voltage gains .707*Vmax

11.42 *.707 = 8.1

After plotting the graph we need to go below 100 Hz and read the frequency that the gain is 8.1. This is f1

Then go above 1k until the gain is 8.1 and read that frequency. This is f2

 

Bandwidth = f2-f1

If it is in Db then the bandwidth would be at the 21.15DB-3Db or 18.15Db

This should be the same points:

 

 

Semilog Point Plotting Example

 

This is semi log paper, note the bottom horizontal scale is frequency, and always gets 10 times larger on the next decade. There are no zeros on the graph.  10^0 = 1 so that is the first number, 10^1 = 10 so we jump from counting 1’s to counting 10’s, for example 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 20,30 etc.

The vertical scale is gain in decibels and uses a linear scale.

The point plotted is a frequency of 10 hertz and a gain of 7 db.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Principles of Management

Power Point Presentation 

Are you motivated to succeed in business? It is time to develop a mini business plan! Prepare a 15-slide PowerPoint presentation. The PowerPoint presentation will be a business venture you want to launch. You can use the information in the required readings and information from other reliable sources. You may use the slide notes function to explain slide contents, if necessary.  Describe what you want to do (this is a strategic plan) (five slides).  Identify the goal. Explain why the opportunity is promising. Make an estimate about how long you think this will take. Make a statement about the advantages of your business and the desire to pursue it (vision/mission statement). Distinguish strategic planning from other managerial actions within your strategic plan. Describe why you will be successful (three slides).  Describe your past performance (company history, if any, what you have done and are doing). Explain the tools or services available (investors? services? local association?).  Describe what you need in order to do this (three slides).  Estimate the necessary capital. Estimate the necessary staff (organization chart); include why the staff you designated will best fit the plan. Describe necessary approvals/licenses.  Describe the products and services you plan to offer (one slide). Identify management (three slides).  Are you the manager (other owners/officers, board members, consultants, or attorneys)? Describe why these choices best fit the plan. You are required to use at least one outside source to support your PowerPoint presentation.

Evaluate the role of strategic planning within the decisions you will be making for the company.
