Case Assignment

Managed Care. Here we will have you consider challenges existing for insured consumers. Your goal is to identify indicators of quality from consumer and administrative bodies.

You are the hospital administrator and members of the board are calling upon you to explain what is going on in your facility with reference to managed care. Some members of the board are not pleased with the budget, patient satisfaction, and rumors that quality care is not being given due to negative surveys they have read. You need to show the board answers in a slide presentation.

For this assignment, you are to submit a PowerPoint and answer the following. Submit at least 20 slides (not counting the cover slide and reference slide), and include speaker’s notes for your slides.

  1. Why patients are having difficulty accessing care (issues of access and referral to be included).
  2. What your facility is doing to assure that quality care is being given.
  3. In at least two slides, show how managed care is affecting your budget for the hospital.
  4. In at least two slides, show how quality is determined from a patient perspective and administrative body.
  5. What is your facility doing to bring these patient surveys into a better light?
  6. Present slides that show at least four to five recommendations for improvement of the managed care system
