Summary statistics on Middleville and its competitors, from the AHA Guide, are shown below in Table 1. All three organizations are not-for-profit. Table 1: Middleville, Brierfield, and Greystone Health Care Systems Name Beds Admissions Census OP Visits Births Expenses (000) Personnel Middleville 575 13,000 350 221,000 2,300 $125,000 2,000 Brierfield 380 17,000 260 175,000 1,200 $130,000 1,875 Greystone 350 10,000 180 40,000 900 $80,000 1,200 The governing board of Middleville hired a consulting company to evaluate its strategic performance, specifically in the areas of Human Resources, Information Technology, Financing, and Marketing. As part of the consultant’s evaluation, several leaders of Middleville’s units were asked their perspective of the organization’s performance. You are working for the consultant. Your job is to identify the issues from the response that should be considered further by the consultant team and possibly discussed with the governing board and the CEO. The firm has a rule, “Never offer a criticism or negative finding without suggesting how the client organization can correct it,” so you must indicate what sort of correction you would recommend as part of your list. Because you know there were about two (2) dozen other interviews, you decide you should rank your issues in importance, to make sure the most critical are discussed. Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you: Explain the governing board’s role in these      strategic initiatives, determining its responsibility and involvement.  Evidence-based management means that operational      and strategic decisions are made based upon the evidence that goals and      objectives are actually being met. Quantitative measurements must be      identified and measured. This data is then used to evaluate the HCO’s      performance. Name three (3) performances Middleville can use to measure      its success in providing quality healthcare to the community, and identify      quantifiable, measureable indicators that can be used to do so. Explain      the importance of each performance measurement.  Given the statistics of Middleville and its two      (2) competitors provided in Table 1, recommend to the HCO what areas it      should focus on to maintain its competitive market share as well as      continue to provide healthcare to the community in the 21st      century.  Some of Middleville’s Board members are very      interested in pursuing advanced technology systems over the next five (5)      years, while others are concerned about the enormous expense and need      assurance that the investment in technology will be worthwhile. In both      monetary and process terms, describe the costs and benefits      associated with implementing EMR and associated health data systems. Lay      out a plan for how various systems can be implemented.  Middleville has faced many challenges in      recruiting and retaining nurses and other clinical employees. The economy      has hit the area very hard and budgetary limitations have reduced the      amount of money available for salary increases. The Board knows it needs      to provide other benefits to their valued employees. Provide at least two      (2) suggestions to Human Resources to promote employee satisfaction and,      therefore, retain experienced personnel.  Use at least three (3) quality resources in this      assignment.
