Risk Management V (Project)

 

Part 1:
Write a 2–3 page evaluation of the quality improvement program that you have created. This should be the annual summary of the hypothetical data. Make sure your hypothetical data are credible.

Part 2:
As you may recall from Week 1 (Emergency Rooms), your Course Project was to prepare a total quality improvement program, with a focus on one high-risk area. Continuous quality improvement covers many areas. Throughout the course, you have learned about the attributes that constitute a quality improvement team and what questions this team attempts to answer. The assignments toward this project that you completed each week can now be assembled into a single instructional document.

Make necessary adjustments to your document so that each segment flows smoothly into the next. Evaluate your project using the criteria given below.

  1. Are the indicators and their measurements appropriate to the high-risk area? Do the indicators capture the risk?
  2. Are the fictional incidents realistic and plausible?
  3. Is the filled chart consistent with the fictional incident?
  4. Is the plan of correction feasible? Will it prevent the occurrence of the incident in the future?
  5. How do you know the plan worked? What measures will you use to identify effectiveness?

Include an introduction, conclusion, and reference page for this assignment.

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the Online Library and online sources. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

Managed Care V (Project)

Evolution of Laws

MMA was signed by President Bush in 2003. The MMA brought about sweeping changes that increased enrollment and improved access to Medicare Plans. Similarly, the PPACA was signed into law by President Obama in 2010. The law is expected to significantly increase access to Medicaid for the uninsured, low-income families, and individuals. Medicaid managed care has been implemented by most states, mainly because of rising costs, plan quality, access to providers, and the decrease in state revenues and federal matching funding. Medicare has explored managed care for the same reasons: to reduce costs, improve quality and improve access to providers. Using the Online Library or the Internet, research the following two topics and write a paper evaluating the impact of these policies on Medicare and Medicaid managed care.

You need to research on the following two topics:

  • Medicare and managed care
  • Medicaid and managed care

Based on your research, answer the following questions:

  • Write a summary for each topic tying together the information learned about that topic.
  • Analyze the challenges Medicaid faces in terms of improving access to care, quality of care, and reducing the cost of care.
  • Analyze the challenges Medicare faces in terms of improving access to care, quality of care, and reducing the cost of care.
  • Draw conclusions about the future of managed care in each program—will it grow or decline? What will be the challenges for success?
  • Select at least four reputable articles per topic that address the challenges facing Medicare and Medicaid managed care.

As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

This is a minimum of 3-5 page paper completed in APA format that includes an introduction and conclusion.

Please refer to the rubric for this assignment for a full understanding of the requirements.
