Business Case Analysis for Healthcare Improvement Assignments Business Case Analysis for Healthcare Improvement Assignments Business Case Analysis for Healthcare Improvement Assignments Course Name: Business Case Analysis for Healthcare Improvement CPE Objective (25 Hours): After completing this clinical practice experience (CPE), students will have established a need for a healthcare improvement project (HIP). Student Name: Preceptor or SME Name: Form Instructions: Preceptor or SME: Verify the completion of each of the following activities by providing dates and initials using DocuSign. Remember to save the document. When all tasks have been completed, sign and date this entire record using DocuSign. Student: The CPE in this course consists of 25 hours of semi-structured activities. These activities relate to developing the need for a HIP, using a business case analysis approach. You will prepare evidence or deliverables that will be submitted in your e-portfolio. As you complete each experience, ask your preceptor or SME to verify completion by entering the date the activity was done and the preceptor or SME’s initials. CLINICAL PRACTICE EXPERIENCE Max Hours Earned Preceptor or SME Verification Date Initials Phase 1: Preparing for CPE Meet with your preceptor or SME to review the requirements for your CPE. Discuss the need for a HIP in your former or current organization. Strategically plan the tasks and timeline needed to complete your CPE. You should collaborate with colleagues from your former or current organization, preceptor or SME, and faculty to complete an affinity analysis, impact analysis and a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis to determine organizational need and readiness for a HIP. Work with your preceptor or SME to identify at least three subject matter experts or colleagues from your current or former organization (e.g., nurse leaders, informatics experts, system users, etc.) who may be willing to participate in a collaborative affinity analysis, impact analysis, and SWOT. Consult with these individuals, preceptor or SME, and faculty to gain an enhanced understanding of their roles and responsibilities in initiating, planning, implementing, and evaluating a healthcare improvement project. Create a 5- to 10-minute GoReact video that describes the roles and responsibilities of the experts and colleagues you identified to work with you to complete the requirements of this CPE. After recording your video and posting it for review, watch two of your peers’ videos and provide them encouraging and constructive feedback. Finally, capture a screenshot of your video and screenshots showing you responded to two of your peers’ videos.

CLINICAL PRACTICE EXPERIENCE Max Hours Earned Preceptor or SME Verification Date Initials Phase 2: Affinity Analysis, Impact Analysis, and SWOT Consult with experts in the field or colleagues from your former or current organization, preceptor or SME, and faculty to determine the need for a HIP by doing an affinity analysis. You should capture, cluster, categorize, and prioritize the needs ideas. Use the results of your affinity analysis to determine which need will be the focus of your HIP. Strategically plan to address the need that emerged from your affinity analysis by developing a set of goals, objectives, and recommendations for a HIP. This should include a justification for the need in context of your target population and project setting. Also include the method used to reach group consensus. Conduct an impact analysis using the “Impact Analysis Template” to further examine the feasibility of implementing a HIP. The analysis should include the following: Two benefit and risk categories Two benefits for each category and two risks for each category A rating for each benefit and each risk A calculation of the total benefits score and the total risks score The result of the impact ratio calculation Conduct a SWOT analysis using the “SWOT Analysis Template” to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the organization where you will implement your healthcare improvement project. The analysis should include the following: Two internal criteria Two external criteria Two opportunities for each criteria Two threats for each criteria Use the findings from the SWOT to determine organizational readiness. Discuss the findings from your various analyses with your preceptor or SME and the individuals you recruited to help complete Business Case Analysis for Healthcare Improvement Assignments elements of a business case analysis for your project. Together, determine the justification for initiating of your HIP. Create a 5- to 10-minute GoReact video that discusses the findings from your affinity, impact, and SWOT analyses.

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.

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?
