Many healthcare organizations set goals and objections and write mission statements that reflect the way they want the public to see how healthcare is provided. This is done to guide how their healthcare providers practice daily. In order to meet these goals and objects it is necessary to have in place processes and procedures to ensure the results will be what is expected which is a positive patient experience and outcome. In order for our organization to reach this goal there is a coaching and execution package that will provide step-by-step processes and procedures to ensure that everyone is doing the same thing at the same time
There are many challenges that are defining the future strategic direction of health care such as information technology advancements, access to health care, maintaining a skilled workforce, proposed health care reform and legislation, and rising costs. I will look at these challenges and how an organization may adapt its direction and strategies in accordance with these challenges.
A major change is occurring in the healthcare system as the United States continues to move toward enhancing patient care quality and access while also decreasing cost. This significant transformation is driven by a variety of forces, including changes in managed care, a shift from pay for service to pay for quality, and ever-evolving client characteristics. This paper aims to discuss each of these factors and the ways in which they make this major transformation a difficult one for the nation to undergo.
Quality is an important factor that affects an organization’s service delivery approach or underlying system of care. To achieve a different level of performance and improve quality, an organization’s system needs to change its own delivery system and key processes. The resources (inputs) and activities carried out are addressed together to ensure or improve quality of care. A health service delivery system can be small and simple, such as an immunization clinic or large and complex or a managed care organization. A health care delivery system consists of resources, activities, and results. Activities or processes within a healthcare organization contain focuses on what care is provided and how is done based on the location, time, and patients of the care delivery. Providing services that meet the needs and expectations of patients and their community, including system that affect patient access, care provision that is evidence-based, patient safety, support for patient engagement, coordination of care with other parts of the larger health care system, and cultural competence, including assessing health literacy of patients, patient-centered communication, and linguistically appropriate
In conclusion, this paper explored the strengths and weaknesses of this organization. A weakness is identified and improvement is recommended to create a Patient Advisory Council in the Shared Governance to promote better patient-centered care. In doing so, patients will have sense of empowerment by having their input in the plan of care. To measure the success of the recommended change, the use of HCAHPS and patient metrics are utilized and compared nationally.
Improving the quality of health care system is the main goal of this organization. In this case study we will be talking about the strategic plans being made by the organization for the next decade to deal with the problems of resource management, network growth, patient satisfaction as well as nurse staffing. The readiness of the organization towards catering the citizens' needs for health care will also be discussed in this case study (Goetsch and Davis, 2010).
The healthcare industry is moving toward a more quality centered approach, where patients become consumers in the healthcare world.
In business there are strategies that need to be fulfilled. Starting a business or health care organization we need to use strategy planning. In the strategy planning of our business or health care organization we need to map out the mission, vision and goals that we want our business or health care organization to meet.

In addition, improve its process to ensure safety with adequate staffing by providing the best care possible, “in order to survive, the organization must find ways to expand efficiency by decreasing their resource, administrative, and labor cost without forfeiting quality of care. According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), a leader in quality improvement research and practice incorporated the need to increase efficiency into one of its core teaching concepts and designed as it target the Triple Aim.

A country’s economy and well-being depends upon how strong its healthcare system is. A country would grow into a stronger nation if the people are mentally and physically stronger. Moreover, healthcare systems are usually complex and complicated systems and thus, they need a lot of attention. As Donley (2005) states, “[t]he changing patterns of health care delivery have increased complexity in all practice environments” (p. 314). By a complicated system, it means how different healthcare organizations together play a pivotal role in measuring success of a country’s healthcare system. These healthcare organizations further rely on various departments within the system which are in turn led by various leaders. Thus, it is evident how leaders are the key link in deciding the fate
Fixing problems that face health care in many health facilities demand a system wide set of solutions. The systems used in these facilities must be assessed and redesigned to identify factors that will aid in the achievement of the set goals. The enormous task of achieving the goals should be undertaken collaboratively by all the key stakeholders, who include, health care professionals, planners and policy makers, administrators, payers, and patients and their families. These partnerships must begin with a common understanding of the problems together with a shared commitment to cooperate and work together to eliminate the problems. With this knowledge, therefore, an action plan for redesigning the health care system can be developed and later implemented. For a successful health care service to be realized, there are various factors which should be employed and which are not found in the traditional business setting. These include unique economic processes, proper regulatory requirements and the perfect quality indicators. This creates a need for every leader within the healthcare industry to create or develop unique skill sets that will harmonize both organizational leadership and the inter-professional team development. It is, therefore, important to understand the comprehensive approach to the management of patient care and also how the concepts of team development and organizational leadership support healthcare leaders in creation of a patient-centric
