29 Sep RequirementsDraft a proposal for your data review
RequirementsDraft a proposal for your data review project. Use the Data Review Project Proposal Template, linked in the Resources of this unit.Integrate faculty feedback on your proposal, prior to sharing it with the prospective client.Supporting EvidenceAdd a minimum of five relevant, authoritative sources, cited within the outline, different than the original citations from Assessment 1. Limit commercial website references to no more than two entries. Format your citations and references using APA style.Note: The requirements outlined below correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your proposal addresses each point, at a minimum. You may also want to read the Data Review Project Proposal Scoring Guide to better understand how each criterion will be assessed.Choose a framework appropriate for examining the type of data under investigation. Look at the following for examples and explain the basis for your choice.For a compliance project, use the regulations.For an accrediting assessment, use the standards and site survey criteria.For the implementation of a new service line, consider using the balanced scorecard framework.Explain how a project addresses and adds value to each of the four areas of an organizational balanced scorecard. (The four areas being, business operations, finance, customer service, and organizational learning and growth.)Create a balanced scorecard table similar to the one presented in the Balanced Scorecard Example, linked in the Resources of this unit.Consider a strategic, systems perspective as you contemplate value to the organization and how the project aligns with the organizational mission, vision, and strategy.Find evidence to support your assertions and conclusions.Determine what additional information would strengthen your value proposition.Develop proposed structures (for example, pie chart, graph, spreadsheet, process map) for the visual display of summarized raw data.Reflect on what type of visual display structure will best fit your selected topic. Although you are just beginning to collect data, you will want to consider how to display it.Ensure that your data displays are clear and easily interpreted.Ensure that the proposed title includes the focus of the data, units of measurement, the organization’s name, and time frame.Combine clear, coherent, and original writing, in APA style, with relevant and credible evidence from the scholarly and professional literature.Apply correct APA formatting to your source citations.Consider how or why a particular piece of evidence supports your main points, claims, or conclusions.Make sure your supporting evidence is clear and explicit.Data Review Project Proposal TemplateYour data review project proposal should include the following elements:Cover Page: Includethe project topic, the course title, your name, the date, and the instructor’sname.Table of Contents:Headings and sub-headings with right-justified page numbers.Executive Summary:One page, double-spaced. Include the topic, the problem, the purpose of the projector data examination, the method to examine the data (data review), and thenature of the findings (for example, quality improvement of X).Introduction:Four-sentence topic description—statement of the problem, the performanceindicators to be evaluated, the outcome measures for each indicator, and thevalue proposition or relevance statement.·I am examining [state the issue or problem],because [identify the relevant and authoritative reference that validates yourissue as a problem].·I will examine [state the type of data], andwill assess the data by measuring [state the performance indicators and outcomemeasures].·This project will add value to [state the typeof organization or name] by [mention how it aligns with an organizationalneed].·This project aligns with my professionalinterests and career goals by [mention how it adds value or has relevance foryou personally].Statement of theProblem: State the issue in the form of a problem, and add a properly-formattedAPA citation.Background:Literature: Provide a minimum of six authoritative sources. Add a short descriptionof each source explaining how the content directly relates to the topic. Note: Wikipedia and commercial websitesare not authoritative sources.Your sources should address the following:·The issue from a national or industry level.·Current, relevant facts, trends, and emergingissues.·The issue relative to your subsector of thehealth care industry or continuum of care.·Data and statistics that substantiate the needto examine the issue (or, what are the consequences and risks of not addressing the issue?).Client Value Proposition:·State how your project will address or add valueto each of the four areas of the balanced scorecard: business operations,finance, customer service, and organizational learning and growth.·Restate any pertinent information, including an industrymacro overview, such as a new policy to be implemented, compliance with anexisting regulation or law, and client needs and situation.·Make a precise statement about how the datareview will add value to the organization.·Include a request for input and feedback fromthe practicing health care professional or selected health care organization.This is to ensure that your identification of key performance indicators andtargeted data sets under investigation align with the needs of theorganization.Expected Outcomes and PrecisePerformance Measurement:·What data will be collected and analyzed?·Explain how each performance indicator thatrelates to the problem will be measured. Be precise in explaining how the outcomewill be measured.·Explain what type of visual displays you willuse to summarize or group the data you are examining (for example, a pie chart,graph, spreadsheet, and process map.)Leadership Component:·Describe your precise roles and responsibilitiesin leading the effort. Human subject research is outside the scope of the HealthAdministration Capstone course.·Select one NCHL competency within each categoryor domain of People, Transformation, and Execution. Then, provide a shortexplanation about how each relates to your project. For example, Domain =People; Competency = Change Leadership. I will practice this competency in Unit4 by seeking feedback and suggestions from a practicing health careprofessional.Timeline: Includea week-by-week summary of major tasks to be done to complete the project.·Proposed start and end dates, weekly to-dotasks, responsible party (learner), and due dates. Note: Use the Project Management Timetable format.Balanced Scorecard ExampleApplied to a Billing Process Improvement ProjectBusiness OperationsFinanceCustomer ServiceOrganizational Learning and GrowthDiminish criticalpath variance by x% during Q3 of FY 15.

You are quantifying what they can expect if theyimplement this project. What are the goals or benchmarks? What will indicate ifthey are making progress (performance indicators)? How will they measure theirprogress (units of measure: variance rate, minutes-per-day, percentage ofdenied claims, and percentage of reduced coding errors; resultant savings:staff time, aging accounts, delayed revenue inflow)? Essentially, you areciting the time frame in which results might be obtained and providing targetsfor those results.TipsPlease keep this simple. It is not a complex exercise. Youwill simply makea balanced scorecard table similar to the one above for your project and add itto your existing proposal. Feelfree to customize the table for your project.Remember to review the instructor feedback from the DataReview Project Proposal assignment. Ensure that you have included any suggestedrevisions in your new and improved project design. Also, include anysuggestions from the client, when applicable.
