Whether a health care policy was formulated at the federal….Part 2

Whether a health care policy was formulated at the federal (country); state (providence or regional); or local level, policies inevitably have considerable impact on local health care organizations, communities, and relevant stakeholders. In other words, a health care policy that has far-reaching relevance to the nation, state, or region ultimately impacts the grassroots interests and concerns of the community.

To complete the Assignment, select a recent (within the last 5 years) health care policy that has had substantial impact on consumers. In particular, look at a high-impact health care policy to analyze the diverse and divergent perspectives that informed its development and then assess its impact at the local organizational level.

Detailed and current information on health care policy may be found on many websites, including the following:

  •  American Hospital Association (AHA)

  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

  • The Kaiser Family Foundation

  • Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)

  • American Public Health Association (APHA)

  • American Association of Retired Persons (AARP)

After choosing a health care policy, select a local health care organization that is impacted by that policy. This might be a public agency, a health care facility, or any organization substantially influenced by the policy. It also might be the health care organization in which you work. As an administrator in this organization, you have been tasked with preparing an assessment of the impact of the policy on the organization’s operations and outcomes. This task requires you to take a large and complex topic (the policy) and synthesize it into digestible information that organizational stakeholders can strategically use to address issues raised by the policy.

For Part 1 of this assessment, you will create a PowerPoint presentation that explains key points related to the health care policy you selected. This presentation is designed to inform and precede the dissemination of an in-depth policy assessment regarding the impact of the policy on the organization.

For Part 2, you will write an in-depth policy assessment that synthesizes the impact of the health care policy on the organization.

Part 2: Policy Assessment

Once organizational stakeholders have been given foundational and critical information about the health care policy, you will provide them with a succinct, in-depth assessment of the impact of the policy on the organization.

In a 2- to 3-page executive summary:

  • Briefly discuss the relevance of the policy to the organization.

  • Explain areas within the organization that will be affected by the policy.

  • Identify key organizational stakeholders impacted by this policy. Explain how they will be affected.

  • Assess any community impact that will need to be taken into consideration.

  • Describe the expected impact of the policy on organizational outcomes.

Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate. See the Week 7 Assignment Rubric in the Course Information area for additional requirements related to research and scholarly writing/presentation.
