This week, you will submit the first two sections of your Strategic Plan, an introductory summary of the strategic plan issue and a SWOT analysis. Conducting a SWOT analysis can have tremendous value in preparing for planned change. Review the Strategic Plan Overview and Template in this week’s Learning Resources. This document outlines all project components and due dates, and you should draft all sections of your Strategic Plan within the template.

As you create each section of your Strategic Plan, keep in mind that all resources that you use should be documented in APA style in Section 9: References, however Section 9 will not be graded until it is submitted in Week 10.

Section 1: Summary of the Issue

To prepare:

· Consider the information on strategic planning in the Learning Resources.

· Review any feedback you received from your Instructor on your Module 1 Assignment. If necessary, continue to refine your focus to clarify the strategic plan issue.

· To prepare your Summary of the Issue section, proceed as follows:

· Investigate the background related to this issue. What conditions have contributed to this situation? Is there data (beyond what you identified for the Week 2 Discussion) that should be examined?

· Conduct research to assess what has been attempted in the past, by various individuals or organizations, to address this issue.

· Think about any broader issues that should be examined to better understand this issue. For instance, consider economic, political, and/or social considerations.

Section 2: SWOT Analysis

To prepare:

· Conduct a SWOT analysis for your Strategic Plan, reviewing and incorporating any insights you have gained from feedback from Week 4 Discussion 2: Preparing for a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats Analysis. Identify two strengths, two weaknesses, two opportunities, and two threats that warrant a

After reviewing your documents for week 5 I noted several issues. In week 11 you will be reviewing what you wrote in this document and refining and developing further what you want to say, These comments are general and apply to everyone in varying degrees even if you got high grades. As you can see my grading is getting harder as we go along.

1) Many of you still do not understand what a business case is

2) Many of you still need to work on your analysis listing the data is not enough you must be able to show your analysis so that you can show how and why you are recommending your proposed solution

3) You also need to show why your innovation is innovative

4) Most of you do not know how to research articles as evidenced by the quality of your lit reviews

5) Also some of you it is clear to me that you are not using the resources I am sending you in these announcements.

Therefore I am going to provide some additional information to you in this

Business Case

A business case captures the reasoning for initiating a project or task. It is often presented in a well-structured written document, but may also come in the form of a short verbal agreement or presentation. The logic of the business case is that, whenever resources such as money or effort are consumed, they should be in support of a specific business need. An example could be that a software upgrade might improve system performance, but the “business case” is that better performance would improve customer satisfaction, require less task processing time, or reduce system maintenance costs. A compelling business case adequately captures both the quantifiable and non-quantifiable characteristics of a proposed project.

Please remember that your document is being prepared for a proposal for what your intervention(s) are going to be for a one-year pilot project.

Before you create the budget and or timeline you must make sure that you have the following information

1) Based upon the first part of the project you were supposed to Quantify the number of monies lost or not realized as a result of your problem

For instance, if you are claiming the need for a psych unit how many patients were lost in revenue to the fact of not having that unit for a one year period. And you must be able to document where and how you got that figure,

2) If your project is going to require either facility redesign or new capital equipment, you must know how many years in your organization’s accounting system they allow you to break up the expenses. For instance if the system is five years and you are purchasing a 1 million dollar machine then you take the first 250.000 and apply that to your proposed pilot project.

3) If you are using existing staff you have a full-time salary you must take whatever % of their salary and assign to your budget

4) Do not forget to include other monies from the department and assign to your project. If you going to have to feed patients you must include that in the operational budget

Your budgets must have a detailed line-item budget for staffing with a line for each staff person. If you have a coordinator or manager put their salary in.

You must have a detailed line item budget for operations

If your purchasing equiptment you must have a capital budget

When creating this budget have sub totals for each section and then have a total budget for the year

Then have a final section at the bottom of the budget

For instance

Nursing Turn over is costing the hopsital 3,000,000 for the year and your interventions are going to cost less then it might be worth doing

If the cost is greater than the one year loss and you believe that the expense is going to be made up in five years. You must write a justification at the bottom of the budget

If you are going to use a excel spreadsheet it must be embedded in the document. It cannot be an appendix

If it is not embedded in the document it will be considered not there

Remember you must have a key in each section of the budget explaining where you got your figures from

As for the timeline you must first decide if you want a three month or six month prep time before launching the project.

In the prep time section of the timeline you are to list all the task you must accomplish and when during that period

For instance the hiring of new staff if needed

During the first four quarters you must have in your timeline

How you are going to accomplish each part of the scorecard remember the score card are the metrics that you promise your organization that

Section 1: Summary of the Issue

The strategic plan issue that the Saint Barnabas Medical Center wants to implement is clinical excellence and effectiveness program through evidence-based care delivery protocols that is contributed by challenges such as limited organizational resources and lack of training and education. The mission statement of Saint Barnabas Medical Center: promote the health and well-being in our community through compassionate nursing care and innovation. The vision is to empower ourselves as well as others in order to maintain optimum health.

Background:

The background that has led to this program at the clinical setting is lack of collaboration and coordination among the physicians and nurses at the institution. Over time the medical facility experienced poor patient outcomes especially when the number of patients with cancer and chronic diseases spurred. There is need for patient safety in the surgical rooms and operations that are related to chronic diseases have increased the need for a strategic plan at the organization to improve quality care. The physicians are challenged on a daily basis about decision making practices that directly involve the patients. The facility saw the need to integrate evidence based practice which involves best external evidence, clinical expertise from individual practitioners and patient preferences and values. The main challenge that prompted the implementation of the program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center is limited resources in terms of technology and lack of training of the medical professionals, (Bean, 2018). Data at the facility is not available because of technology services.

Literature:

Evidence–based practice is crucial in improving the overall quality of patient care, boosts nursing practices and increases confidence in decision making process. Nurses and physicians are placed in a clinical setting to enhance the quality of healthcare services that is based on knowledge and research. According to Alatawi, et.al, 2020, nurses that provide care using scientific evidence make better decisions that concern the delivery of services and care. The advantages of integration of EBP includes: “EBP ensures that health professionals are delivering patient care that is innovative and, thus, guaranteeing better outcomes for patients. Evidence-based practice also contributes to the science of nursing and increases the confidence in decision-making, resulting in ideal outcomes. Finally, EBP maintains certain health practices relevant and current,” (Alatawi, et.al, 2020). Lack

Section 3: Goals, Objectives, and Strategies

Strategic planning is a crucial part of looking into the future in a very organized and systematic manner. The success of any project depends on how well thought out the plan was, the way in which the activities within the project are organized, the labeling of the things that require to be done as well as the capability of involved team members to actively engage in the listed activities and carry them out as expected. The goals of the plan reflect on the end result; they are used to measure how effective the plan was in meeting the expected outcomes. The objectives of the plan are used to guide the stakeholders of the project in moving towards the right directions in order to achieve the required results. The strategies are the actual steps to be carried out within the project in order to help meet the goals and objectives of the plan.

The goals of the healthcare reform plan include; increasing the quality of care that the healthcare providers give to the patients, reducing the number of cases of re-hospitalization which are caused by delivery of low quality medical care to reduce the costs of medical care services, increasing the association between patients and the medical practitioners as well as ensuring that there is maximal cooperation between the healthcare providers (Thomas & Roussel, 2020).

The objectives of the healthcare reform plan are increasing the concentration on promotion of health as well as prevention of illnesses, improving the quality of services given by ensuring that all medical care givers are able to follow all the outlined principles in the hospital settings, encouraging the interaction between medical care givers and patients to ensure that their responsiveness to medical treatment is increased, helping healthcare givers improve their performance by motivating them to collaborate and work together as a team (Jeffs et al, 2019).

The strategies of the healthcare reform plan involve developing community outreach programs which are aimed at educating the community members on how to lead a healthy life to ensure they prevent occurrence of certain medical conditions, developing team building activities which are geared at encouraging medical practitioners to learn how to work together to achieve a common goal, increased monitoring of the activities within the hospital setting and ensuring that the transcultural medical care guidelines are followed and the patients are involved in all decisions made regarding their treatment.
