Use a norms-based scale as a method of quantifying the impact the benefits will have. Give a “1” rating for low impact, a “2” rating for moderate impact, and a “3” rating for high impact. Total these benefit ratings and enter the sum in the “Total Benefits Score” cell. Category Improvement Project Benefits Rating 1 2 3 4 Total Benefits Score Risks: Using the same categories identified in the “Benefits” section, identify at least two risks for each of the categories that may be negatively impacted by the implementation of your healthcare improvement project. As you did in the “Benefits” section, rate the risks using the norms-based scale of “1” for low impact, “2” for moderate impact, and “3” for high impact. Total these ratings and enter the sum in the “Total Risks Score” cell. Category Improvement Project Risks Rating 1 2 3 4 Total Risks Score Calculate the impact ratio by dividing the benefits total score by the risks total score, then enter that ratio into the table below. Use the criteria in the table below to determine if the benefits outweigh the risks. Impact Ratio = _______ [Benefits Rating total score divided by Risks Rating] 10 Appendix B SWOT Analysis (D156) A SWOT analysis will help you identify internal and external factors in an organization that may impact the readiness of the organization for an improvement project. At a minimum, identify two internal criteria and two external criteria. Then for the internal criteria, identify two Strengths and two Weaknesses for each of the criteria. For the external criteria, identify two Opportunities and two Threats for each of the criteria. The presence of weaknesses and threats are gaps to be addressed in planning, while the absence of strengths or opportunities clarifies the need for further planning or development before implementation. Click in the following boxes to enter your SWOT factors. Factors to maintain Factors to address Internal Criteria Strengths Weaknesses (Examples:  Collective capabilities  Morale, commitment, leadership  Governance, participation norms, and defined roles  Resources, funding, assets, people  Experience, knowledge, data  Innovative aspects  Collaboration tools  Processes, systems, IT, and communications  Cultural, attitudinal, behavioral norms) What does the organization do well that will help the implementation of the project? What does the organization lack that may hinder the implementation of the project? External Criteria Opportunities Threats (Examples:  Political, legislative, and financial environment  Stakeholder What external factors will help facilitate the implementation of your project? What external factors will hinder the implementation of your project? 11 involvement  Technology development and innovation  Development of knowledge  Uptake in disseminated knowledge or best practices) Appendix C SMART+C Goal Worksheet (D156) This worksheet is designed to help you create a SMART+C (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound, and challenging) goal for your healthcare improvement project (HIP).
