Project #92858 - Continuum of long term care

 

Select one of the following issues. Write 6-7 double-spaced pages on each issue. Use information from the textbook, extensive research, and information tracked down from other sources. Cite a minimum of five information sources (may include textbook and credible, government or organizational Web sites). You must use the Online Library for your research. Remember that wikis and blogs are not credible resources. Cite your text using APA format, double citation. The paper should show insight in discussing issues, not just a verbatim repeat of data from the text.

All papers should be typewritten and checked for spelling and grammar. The due date for the paper is in Unit 4, so do not procrastinate on this paper. No more than 15% of the words should be direct quotes.

  • You have recently become president of a health care system, Comprehensive Health Systems, Inc. You believe that quality care should be organized as a continuum of care. Your system owns some, but not all, of the services of a continuum. What measures will you implement to organize your health care system as a continuum? What criteria will you use to measure success? (Begin with a description of the services your system offers directly and those it accesses informally, as well as your target market.)
  • You are the director of continuing care services for St. Timothy's Health Care System, a multilevel system consisting of an array of acute and long-term services. You have been given the task of developing an information system that will track clients over time and place across the system. The system will be used for clinical, financial, and management purposes. What basic components are essential to the system? What challenges and barriers do you anticipate will be encountered in planning and implementing the system? What are the first steps you will take to design the system? What recent external developments enhance and impede your project? Draw a graph of how the system will work.
  • Your state is attempting to integrate services for people needing long-term care. Using an organization chart or list, identify all the departments and programs run by the state that potentially are related to long-term care and thus should be involved in the integration effort. Describe how this initiative should be orchestrated (i.e., the process for coordinating this change). Outline services and financing programs that should be involved; participation may be phased in over time. Explain how the integration should be implemented at the local client level and how staff and offices will be prepared to accomplish integration.
