Question description

The overall goal of the Session Long Project is to examine health care delivery in the United States. Most of us in the health care industry are well acquainted with the term "accreditation." We often hear about an upcoming inspection from Joint Commission or CAP. What we don't often think of is the fact that managed care organizations also get accreditation. This is how they demonstrate their commitment to ensuring patients receive quality care. For this assignment, you are to research one of two agencies that accredit managed care organizations: National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) or Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare, Inc. Once you have researched these organizations, please respond to the following questions.

  1. Discuss the purpose of accreditation. Has the process of accreditation really improved the quality of care being provided to patients?
  2. Identify and discuss the process of accreditation for the chosen agency.
  3. Discuss some of the standards they look for when they go on-site. Are the standards rigorous or vague?
  4. Do these agencies make the results of their surveys public? How could knowing this information be benefical to patients?

LENGTH: Your paper should be 3 (900 words) pages typed and double-spaced with one-inch margins and 12-point font, and meet the exact number of pages specified in the assignment instructions.

COVER PAGE: Copy the exact assignment onto your cover page (the actual questions or task).

REFERENCES: Cite your references in the text of all papers and on the reference list at the end. For examples, review the way the references are listed in the modules and on the background reading list.

CLARITY: The paper reads clearly (i.e., it is not confusing) and is well-structured. Subheadings are used to guide the reader.

BREADTH: The paper presents appropriate breadth covering the questions of the assignment (multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues/factors considered, as appropriate).

DEPTH: The paper presents points that lead to a deeper understanding of the matters and/or issues being discussed and integrates several points into coherent conclusions.

EVIDENCE: Statements and points are well-supported with facts or statistics, and references.

CRITICAL THINKING: Set aside personal biases and instead approach the subject matter using available scholarly evidence. Consider the strengths and weaknesses of competing arguments/perspectives on this topic. Having read these scholarly sources, make a judgment as to the merit of the arguments presented therein.
