The purpose of this Final Project is to give you the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge acquired in this course to a management position in a healthcare organization. The goal of this project is to take education from a theoretical basis to a practical application. Final Project Assume you have accepted a management position in a healthcare organization where you have not previously worked. Develop a 180-day Action Plan addressing the activities that you will undertake to effectively be established in this new position. It may be useful to divide the plan into shorter time periods, such as the first 30 days, first 60 days, etc. Assumptions You can choose the type of healthcare organization (HCO) – a hospital, physician group, long-term care facility, or any other HCO that you are familiar with or interested in. You can use an actual HCO or develop a fictitious example. This is a middle management position such as a department director. As stated above, this is a new organization for you. The department you will be leading is stable, but performance has been going down recently. Senior management is looking for you to diagnose the reasons for the decline in performance and make recommendations for improvements. Requirements Provide a brief description of the organization including the type (hospital, long-term care facility, etc.), size (number of beds, number of providers, etc.), organizational structure, leadership style, and ownership (profit or not-for-profit).

Your instructor does expect you to cover each topic in enough depth to demonstrate your understanding of the key considerations in each area listed above.
