Question Description

I’ve started the presentation and need it finished....the instructions are below




Create a presentation (maximum of 20 slides with detailed speaker notes) for senior leadership in which four organizational leaders analyze the impact of a health care organization's new safety and quality dashboard. Include an analysis of what the new metrics mean and how they will inform departmental activities for the next quarter.

"Being in a position of leadership is the most important job of any health professional anywhere along the continuum of care" (Ledlow & Coppola, 2013, p. 3). Leaders and ultimately the boards of directors of health care organizations are accountable for the safety of those they serve." National quality organizations and regulatory bodies ... are growing in their emphasis on leadership accountabilities for safe, reliable care as well as excellence in the experience of care" (Youngberg, 2013, p. 39).

With this emphasis on leadership accountability for the delivery of safe, high-quality health care services, health care leaders need to be able to drill down on what exactly safety and quality mean in the health care environment. Likewise, they also need to be able to design measures that help to ensure their organizations are able to deliver those kinds of outcomes. Read Measurement Perspectives [PDF] to examine key elements related to this issue.

In this final course assessment, you will have a unique opportunity to examine a health care organization's safety and quality dashboard from the perspective of four organizational leaders. You will explore each leader's specific interests regarding patient safety and quality. In particular, you will have the opportunity to perform a more in-depth analysis of the dashboard, the type of analysis a quality director might perform to further the organization's safety and quality objectives.
