Utilizing evidence-based literature and quality standards



IHP 430 Milestone Two Guidelines and Rubric

Utilizing evidence-based literature and quality standards, propose an initiative that addresses your problem selected in Milestone One. If you chose a problem in your workplace, be sure to utilize data from that healthcare organization; if you created a hypothetical healthcare organization, you may use a public domain database with instructor permission. You will also implement your performance improvement initiative and discuss what success of the performance improvement plan will look like after implementation. As this is a scholarly initiative, this assignment must adhere to all APA requirements and formatting, and include peer-reviewed and evidence-based sources to support any and all claims. As you develop this final part of the assignment, consider the following prompts to formulate your paper.

III. Performance Improvement Initiative A. Propose an initiative that will address this problem within the department of your chosen healthcare organization. What specific relevant quality

standard will this quality initiative address? B. Discuss the data determinants of success, as related to this initiative. In other words, what type of data will be indicative of a quality outcome?

IV. Implementation of the Plan in the Organization

A. What interdepartmental communication channels will be used for plan implementation? B. What manner of data interpretation will be used to communicate the findings within the organization? C. If this initiative was implemented, what do you believe would be the hypothetical effect(s) on patient care outcomes? How will health

information systems support those improvements in patient care? D. What do you think the hypothetical effect of the quality or performance initiative will be on the culture of safety within the organization?

Guidelines for Submission: This paper should be two to five pages in length, not including the cover page or reference page. Use APA format for the reference list and all internal citations.
