6612: Assessment 1

Assessment 1

  • Triple Aim Outcome Measures
    • Overview: 
    • Develop a presentation, containing 10–15 slides, on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim, how current and emerging health care models support the Triple Aim, and how governmental regulatory initiatives and outcome measures can be applied in the care coordination process to achieve the Triple Aim in a population.
      The Triple Aim is a framework by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (n.d.) for “simultaneously improving the health of the population, enhancing the experience and outcomes of the patient, and reducing per capita cost of care for the benefit of communities.” Care coordinators must have a model and framework to guide their practice and enable them to achieve the Triple Aim. Presently, many rural hospitals are using archaic models that must be updated to achieve the Triple Aim. For example, the patient-centered medical home model has been around for 30 years, but it has evolved during that time.
      By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:
    • Competency 1: Apply care coordination models to improve the patient experience, promote population health, and reduce costs. 
      • Explain how the Triple Aim contributes to population health, improves the patient care experience, and reduces health care costs on a regional, state, and national level.
      • Analyze the relationships between various current and emerging health care models and the ways in which they support the Triple Aim.
      • Explain how the structure of particular health care models contributes to the process of gathering and evaluating the quality of evidence-based data.
      • Describe governmental regulatory initiatives and outcome measures that can be applied in the care coordination process to achieve the Triple Aim within a population.
    • Competency 2: Explain the relationship between care coordination and evidence-based data. 
      • Explain how evidence-based data shapes the care coordination process in nursing.
    • Competency 4: Communicate effectively with diverse audiences, in an appropriate form and style, consistent with applicable organizational, professional, and scholarly standards. 
      • Present process improvement recommendations to a stakeholder group clearly and concisely.
      • Support main points, arguments, and conclusions with relevant and credible evidence, correctly formatting citations and references using current APA style.

  • Models of Care
    National initiatives focus on health care organizations to continuously improve the quality, safety, and coordination of care. In response to these initiatives, health care models have surfaced with the goal to guide national health safety and quality improvement efforts.
  • Nursing is an art and science with a foundation that embraces evidence, research, and quality. The thought “we have always done it this way” has long been discarded and replaced by standards based on evidence-based research. As the specialization of care coordination has evolved, care coordination has proven to be a vital element that links patients and families to safer and higher quality care. One care coordination model, the patient-centered medical home (PCMH), has gained momentum and support from governmental and regulatory agencies.

    • Writing Resources
      You are encouraged to explore the following writing resources. You can use them to improve your writing skills and as source materials for seeking answers to specific questions.
    • APA Module.
    • Academic Honesty & APA Style and Formatting.
    • APA Style Paper Tutorial [DOCX].
    • Capella Resources
    • ePortfolio
      • This resource provides information about ePortfolio, including how to use the different features of the product.
    • Online ePortfolio Guidelines [PDF].
    • Research Resources
      You may use other resources of your choice to prepare for this assessment; however, you will need to ensure that they are appropriate, credible, and valid. The MSN-FP6612: Emerging Health Care Models and Care Coordination Library Guide can help direct your research. The Supplemental Resources and Research Resources, both linked from the navigation menu in your courseroom, provide additional resources to help support you.
      As you review these resources, you may want to consider the following questions:
    • What is the Triple Aim, and what does it seek to accomplish?
    • How have health care models laid the foundation for care management structures?
    • How do various models influence organizational health care and system performance?
    • Imagine that you are a care coordinator at an urban teaching hospital. The patients that are served at your health care organization are ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse. Based on these facts, what care coordination model is best suited to guide your practice as a nurse?
    • What is the purpose and philosophy of the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model? 
      • How does its structure contribute to the process of gathering evidence-based data?
      • How is health care quality enhanced through the PCMH model?
  • Asssessment InstructionsPreparation
    In this assessment, you will assume the role of a new case manager at a small rural hospital, Sacred Heart. You have been asked to deliver an evidence-based presentation to hospital leaders and clinical leadership teams about the ways in which the care coordination process at Sacred Heart can be modified to achieve the Triple Aim within the hospital’s rural population. 
    To gain a better understanding of current health care models and their support for the Triple Aim, examine and compare such models as:
    • Patient-centered medical home (PCMH).
    • Transitional care.
    • Patient self-management.
    • Guided care.
    • Care coordination (Institute for Healthcare Improvement).
    • Then, finish gathering the information needed to prepare for your presentation by completing the following simulation exercise:
    • Vila Health: Triple Aim Outcomes.
    • Note:Remember that you can submit all or a portion of your presentation to Smarthinking for feedback before you submit the final version of this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.
      Presentation Software
      You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or any other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with faculty to avoid potential file compatibility issues.
      You are encouraged to review the various presentation resources provided for this assessment. These resources will help you to design an effective presentation, whether you choose to use PowerPoint or other presentation design software.
