Write a 5 page report (not including title and reference page) for a senior lead

Write a 5 page report (not including title and reference page) for a senior leader that communicates your evaluation of current organizational or interprofessional team performance, with respect to prescribed benchmarks set forth by government laws and policies at the local, state, and federal levels. In addition, advocate for ethical action to address benchmark underperformance and explain the potential for improving the overall quality of care and performance, as reflected on a performance dashboard.
In the era of health care reform, many of the laws and policies set forth by government at the local, state, and federal levels have specific performance benchmarks related to care delivery outcomes that organizations must achieve. It is critical for organizational success that the interprofessional care team is able to understand reports and dashboards that display the metrics related to performance and compliance benchmarks.
Maintaining standards and promoting quality in modern health care are crucial, not only for the care of patients, but also for the continuing success and financial viability of health care organizations. In the era of health care reform, health care leaders must understand what quality care entails and how quality in health care connects to the standards set forth by relevant federal, state, and local laws and policies. An understanding of relevant benchmarks that result from these laws and policies, and how they relate to quality care and regulatory standards, is also vitally important.
Health care is a dynamic, complex, and heavily regulated industry. For this reason, you will be expected to constantly scan the external environment for emerging laws, new regulations, and changing industry standards. You may discover that as new policies are enacted into law, ambiguity in interpretation of various facets of the law may occur. Sometimes, new laws conflict with preexisting laws and regulations, or unexpected implementation issues arise, which may warrant further clarification from lawmakers. Adding partisan politics and social media to the mix can further complicate understanding of the process and buy-in from stakeholders.
Write a report for a senior leader that communicates your evaluation of current organizational or interprofessional team performance with respect to prescribed benchmarks set forth by government laws and policies at the local, state, and federal levels. In addition, advocate for ethical action to address benchmark underperformance and explain the potential for improving the overall quality of care and performance, as reflected on a performance dashboard.
Review the performance dashboard metrics, as well as relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies. Consider the metrics that are falling short of the prescribed benchmarks. Structure your report so that it will be easy for a colleague or supervisor to locate the information they need, and be sure to cite the relevant health care policies or laws when evaluating metric performance against established benchmarks.
Requirements
The report requirements outlined below correspond to the scoring guide criteria, so be sure to address each main point. Read the performance-level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed. In addition, be sure to note the requirements for document format and length and for supporting evidence.
Evaluate dashboard metrics associated with benchmarks set forth by local, state, or federal health care laws or policies.
Which metrics are not meeting the benchmark for the organization?
What are the local, state, or federal health care policies or laws that establish these benchmarks?
What conclusions can you draw from your evaluation?
Are there any unknowns, missing information, unanswered questions, or areas of uncertainty where additional information could improve your evaluation?
Analyze one challenge that meeting prescribed benchmarks can pose for a heath care organization or interprofessional team.
Consider the following examples:
Strategic direction.
Organizational mission.
Resources.
Staffing.
Financial: Operational and capital funding.
Logistical considerations: Physical space.
Support services (any ancillary department that gives support to a specific care unit in the organization, such as pharmacy, cleaning services, dietary, et cetera).
Cultural diversity in the organization and community.
Procedures and processes.
Address the following:
Why do the challenges you identified contribute, potentially, to benchmark underperformance?
What assumptions underlie your conclusions?
Evaluate a benchmark underperformance in a heath care organization or interprofessional team that has the potential for greatly improving overall quality or performance.
Focus on the benchmark you chose to target for improvement. Which metric is underperforming its benchmark by the greatest degree?
State the benchmark underperformance that is the most widespread throughout the organization or interprofessional team.
State the benchmark that affects the greatest number of patients. Which benchmark affects the greatest number of staff?
Include how this underperformance affect the community that the organization serves.
Include the greatest opportunity to improve the overall quality of care or performance of the organization or interpersonal team and, ultimately, to improve patient outcomes, as you think about the issue and the current poor benchmark outcomes.
Advocate for ethical action, directed toward an appropriate group of stakeholders, to address a benchmark underperformance.
Who would be an appropriate group of stakeholders to act on improving your identified benchmark metric?
Why should the stakeholder group take action?
What are some ethical actions the stakeholder group could take that support improved benchmark performance?
Organize content so ideas flow logically with smooth transitions.
Proofread your report, before you submit it, to minimize errors that could distract readers and make it more difficult for them to focus on the substance of your evaluation and analysis.
Support main points, assertions, arguments, conclusions, or recommendations with relevant and credible evidence.
