Approved Topic: Analyze the impact of technology on how health care services are

After identifying your topic, choose a health care organization in your
area. This organization may be small or large and may provide single
inpatient health service or multiple outpatient services; it is your
choice. Consider your topic in light of the leadership of this
organization and research the challenges and successes it has faced in
managing operational effectiveness. You are welcome to use as many
research methods as possible to obtain information for your organization
and its managers (e.g., web-based resources, electronic articles, or
personal interviews). The more informed you are, the better prepared you
will be to complete your project.
Finally, develop a management training program that includes relevant
guidelines and information to combat the issues identified in the
selected topic, as well as recommendations for managers to more
effectively lead health care organizations. Your training program should
be in the form of a 20 to 25 slide PowerPoint presentation (excluding
title and reference slides) that includes comprehensive speaker’s notes
(i.e., at least 150 words) for each slide. Utilize at least three to
five scholarly sources from the University Library and two to
three current, scholarly web sources (total of five to eight references
required). All sources must be cited according to APA style as outlined
in the Writing Center. Your presentation must be engaging and
relevant to your audience. Lines of text on a slide will not be
sufficient for this project. It should contain at least five images,
graphics, and/or multimedia that communicate your training clearly to
your audience. For tips on creating an excellent presentation, read this
