Health Information Improvement Proposal

Assessment 4 Instructions: Health Information Improvement Proposal

Develop an 8-10 page proposal in which you pull together your prior recommendations and stakeholder analysis to create a compelling proposal for implementation of contemporary data analysis tools, and practices to improve organizational and patient outcomes.

As a health care leader, you will likely be called upon in your career to create the direction of a project. Using research and data to support your direction and decisions is critical in the evidence-based era of health care management. Synthesizing previous work can enable you to create a succinct and rationale proposal that demonstrates the need and value of your proposition. A strong and well-supported proposal will be more likely to be considered by leadership.

Introduction

The complexity of health information management (HIM) technology requires a sound strategy throughout the implementation phase and well into the end user experience. Continual and ongoing evaluation of the systems is very important to ensure compliance with regulations and appropriate use of electronic health records and other components. Health care managers must understand who their target audience is when developing a strategic plan related to HIM systems. They also need to have a strong understanding of the data that is collected through the systems and how that data impacts decision-making. In this assessment, you will have the opportunity to develop a strategic proposal analyzing the priorities of a typical health care organization. You will also be tasked with understanding how data drives decision-making processes and how health care organizations set strategic goals.

As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as a part of your assessment.

Who is the target audience for your proposal and what are their strategic priorities? What are the data drivers that help substantiate the need for organization improvement and decision- making? What are the organization’s strategic goals?

How can the EHR or HIM help to achieve these? What types of key data can be extracted from the EHR or HIM to help improve workflow? What types of patient data are most valuable for reducing risk? What additional information should be added to the EHR or HIM to improve patient outcomes?

You should complete this assessment last.

Scenario

You have been asked to create a proposal for improving data collection and analysis using Vila Health’s current HIM system. Despite being Meaningful Use certified, the leadership team feels that the organization needs to make better use of patient data to improve clinical outcomes, quality, and efficiency.

Your board of directors has asked you to prepare a full proposal and they are relying on you to provide them with the most current and relevant information to help them decide on the next steps related to improvements and analysis.

Preparation

Before you begin to create your proposal, you should consider completing the following:

Step One – Understand Your Audience

Complete the following:

Determine which key stakeholders and decision makers demonstrate the greatest influence on the organization.

Who are the key stakeholders and what are their priorities? Identify each category of data required to drive decision making and improve organizational performance for implementation of an EHR or HIM system (for example, patient satisfaction surveys.) Align EHR or HIM components with the organization’s strategic goals.

Step Two – Data Analysis Recommendations

Research methods for communicating data analysis recommendations to audiences that are not well versed in data practices or terminology. Determine the most relevant data best practices for the audience, organization, and EHR or HIM systems. Research contemporary data analysis best practices and tools. Remind yourself of Independence Medical Center’s clinical goals, needs, and financial and technical readiness.

Instructions

For this assessment, you will create an 8–10 page proposal that summarizes findings, aligns the appropriate data with the organization’s strategic goals, identifies current trends in data analytics, and provides recommendations for next steps based on your assessment of the organization’s readiness to proceed. You should feel free to draw on relevant aspects of the previous assessments in this course to help you complete this assessment.

Your proposal will be evaluated on the following criteria:

Explain recommendations related to technological and logistical changes to an organization’s health information management system. Explain how data products and outcomes from recommendations align with an organization’s administrative and clinical goals. Analyze how contemporary data analysis trends could be leveraged to improve current practices in an organization. Recommend best practices for collecting data, securely storing data and converting data analytics into useful and understandable deliverables. Apply relevant evidence and best practices to target proposal messaging to stakeholders. Communicate proposal in a professional, clear, and concise way.

Integrate relevant sources to support assertions, correctly formatting citations and references using current APA style.

Additional Requirements

Your proposal should meet the following requirements:
