Healthcare Administration Capstone – Week #1 Assignment 1

Selection of Problem

From healthcare finance to information systems, you have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge. In this capstone course, you will not only compile your final ePortfolio for submission, you will also put all of your knowledge to use in the development of a final project.

Throughout your academic journey, you have been exposed to quite a few issues and concerns related to the healthcare environment. More than likely, there was at least one problem that stood out to you in terms of scope, severity, or perhaps you may have personally experienced this particular issue.

Regardless of reason, in this course, you will thoroughly examine this problem, its past and present impact, as well as its potential for continual concern (Chapter 1). You will then analyze the research related to this issue; what is currently known and what is its framework within the field of healthcare (Chapter 2). After your research on the topic is complete, you will then develop an action plan for the problem paying close attention to the resources needed and the complexity of implementation (Chapter 3).

Lastly, once your plan is completed, you will then evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your plan (Chapter 4). Without making revisions at this juncture, this step is merely a review of potential barriers to your plan either from a social or political perspective. You will also include a complete list of references used in your project, compiled in adherence with APA standards for citation (Chapter 5).
