Question description

Consider the following thoughts on improving access: “Improving access however, is not sufficient to reduce cardiovascular disparities as it is critical to determine what approaches work well for specific populations” (Walton-Moss et al., 2014)

As the quote suggests, quality healthcare goes beyond the provision of access and a standard approach toward the healthcare services offered. As a population health focused professional, you may implement evidence-based quality interventions that demonstrate a positive effect on the health of the populations you might serve. Thus, you will contribute to the continual development of quality improvement initiatives and efforts related to the specific health needs of the populations you will serve.

For this Assignment, you will examine and assess quality health initiatives for a population health issue. You will also develop a fact sheet that might be used to communicate this quality health initiative for a population.

To prepare:

  • Research and select a quality improvement initiative related to population health for a population health issue. Review the National Quality Forum’s measures as a resource.
  • Reflect on the quality improvement initiative you selected, and consider the advantages of this initiative in managing the promotion of population health for the population health issue you selected.

The Assignment: (1-page fact sheet)

Create a 1-page fact sheet that addresses the following:

  • Describe the population health issue you selected.
  • Analyze the quality improvement initiative you selected for managing the promotion of population health for this population health issue.
  • Evaluate whether the quality improvement initiative you selected has been successful in addressing the population health issue you selected. Be sure to include any results or statistics associated with the quality improvement initiative.
  • Analyze the level of prevention that is best aligned with the quality improvement initiative.
  • Explain the role of health educators and health administrators in meeting the goals of this quality improvement initiative for the population health issue you selected. Be specific and provide examples.
