Project #18844 - Healthcare Statistics and Research

The hospital executive board has requested each department to put together a presentation involving a particular current project in the department. Since your department is currently in the process of calculating, reviewing, and analyzing the hospital autopsy rates, you decide to educate the executive board on the various autopsy rates that are reviewed in your department. Create a PowerPoint presentation to present to the executive board. The PowerPoint presentation should include the following information:

  • Introduce the topic of autopsy (define autopsy , discuss the purpose for autopsies, discuss circumstances/reasons for which autopsies are performed, etc)
  • Define and differentiate between the gross autopsy rate and the net autopsy rate
    • Include illustrations of how to calculate both the gross and net autopsy rate
  • Define and differentiate between the hospital inpatient autopsy rate and the hospital autopsy rate
    • Include a discussion on general guidelines involving what autopsies are included in the hospital autopsy rate
  • Some studies have indicated a decrease in the amount of hospital autopsies within recent years. Using the library, the text book, and other resources, conduct some research identifying possible reasons for the decline in hospital autopsy rates
  • Complete the following table to present the executive board with examples of the typical calculations your department uses to compute data (round to two decimal places in your answers):
