Strayer University Health & Medical Question Comparing Health Care Models

Overview

In this assignment, you consider a scenario in which you are asked to compare U.S. government and private sector health care financing models as well as create an infographic depicting the application of Lean Six Sigma principles to reduce cost and improve patient health outcomes.

Scenario

Imagine that you are tasked with providing a comparison of government and private sector health care models for senior executives at a health care organization. You decided to create a table that compares the differences between both financing models in terms of cost, access, reimbursement, and quality.

You also want to impress upon the senior executives the importance of providing efficient and effective health care, so you will create an infographic designed to introduce them to the application of Lean Six Sigma principles to streamline operations and improve health outcomes. Some examples that you may consider include medical errors, patient wait times, supply chain management, or billing errors.

Preparation

The optional resources below will aid you in completing this two-part assignment.

Part 1: Comparing Health Care Models

    • Medicaid.
    • Veteran's Administration.
  • Private Sector
    • Employer Provided Insurance.

Examples might include but are not limited to, areas such as medical errors, patient wait times, supply chain management, or billing errors.

    • Cost - What the patient pays: premiums, copays, and deductibles.
    • Patient Access - Who is eligible for the plan?
    • Provider Reimbursement - How does the plan reimburse the provider? What are the payment models?
    • Quality - Apply CMS Quality measures and HEDIS measures.

Part 2: Lean Six Sigma Infographic

Create an infographic (using the DMAIC approach - Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) depicting how Lean Six Sigma would be used to reduce waste and errors in health care for an operation of your choosing. Examples include medical errors, patient wait times, supply chain management, or billing errors. The following resources for DMAIC should be used for selecting your Lean Six Sigma tools and to review how Lean Six Sigma can be used by hospitals to improve patient care.
