What challenges does the industry face now, and how will impending factors cause the industry to evolve in the next 5 years? Review the SWOT Analysis Microsoft® PowerPoint® prior to completing this assignment. Based on the Community Hospital scenario located in this week’s required reading, conduct a SWOT analysis to generate a list of perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for the healthcare organization. • Strengths and weaknesses are traits internal to the health care organization (e.g., strong physician loyalty to the hospital, aging building, and availability of financial resources). • Opportunities and threats are external to the health care organization (e.g., a mall facility available for lease or a competitor organization opening two physician practices in your market). Use the SWOT Analysis worksheet provided to complete this assignment. Write a 700- to 1,400-word analysis that incorporates the key components of a SWOT analysis for the scenario described above to generate a list of perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.
• Analyze how this SWOT analysis will be used to form a final recommendation in the full business plan. • Analyze the limitations and advantages of conducting a SWOT analysis on your own (versus with a group of stakeholders). • Use the table provided to record your analysis of the information from the strategic planning scenario and generate two factors for each of the SWOT categories (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats). Cite at least 1 peer-reviewed, scholarly, or similar references to support your assignment. Format your assignment according to APA guidelines. Research SWOT analysis for professional development. What would a plan to meet the identified needs look like? What are the benefits of this type of analysis? What continuing-education opportunities currently exist to further extend your healthcare knowledge in your chosen career or role? A personal action plan is a plan you develop to meet personal goals. This is your chance to look at your personal strengths and weaknesses and identify areas where you can improve.
Use these areas to create personal goals. These are goals you want to accomplish regardless of your chosen career. These can be in general areas such as organization and time management, or they can be more specific to your chosen field. For example, you might want to know more about emerging technology in healthcare or about current legislation affecting health care delivery systems. What are three potential challenges or trends that your chosen healthcare field will likely experience? How will these impact quality of service? How would you strategically handle these issues in your organization? How will potential risk and quality management issues affect the healthcare industry? What about in your chosen field? In addition to the personal goals you set in Week Three, this week you will be setting professional career goals. These are goals that relate to your chosen career, what type of job you want, and what steps you need to take to secure that job.
These include gaining skills to include on your resume and a look at what hiring managers will focus on. You will do a gap analysis, where you identify the skills you currently possess and those you need to possess in your chosen career. This will help prepare you for job searches and interviews. Review the American Council for Health Care Executives (ACHE) Career Management 101 workshop site. A link is provided on the student website. Create a professional career plan using the University of Phoenix Material: Professional Career Action Plan Outline. · What are your professional goals? · What job do you plan to have in the health care sector? · What skills for this job do you currently have? · Which skills do you need to change or alter? · What is your plan for ultimately achieving these professional goals? · What professional organizations can help you achieve these goals?
· What benefit does your career action plan outline provide? Now it is time to put all of the elements of your business plan together and present it to the governing board of the Community Hospital. This board is comprised of the president of the organization, four business leaders from the community, and three leaders of the medical staff. Create a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation that summarizes your business plan. • Evaluate the market and demographic data provided in the scenario. Include and discuss the SWOT analysis. Indicate the location you selected for the urgent center and why. • Analyze the type of corporation proposed for the center. • Evaluate the equipment and technology needed at the center to deliver the intended services. Do you recommend leasing or purchasing the equipment? How does your recommendation impact the revenue and expenses? • Analyze quality management elements applicable to the center and the proposed services. How you will monitor the quality of care at the center? What are your projected revenue, expenses, and staffing figures? • Provide your final recommendation for the center based on your business plan analysis.
