HSA 300 WEEK 8 ASSIGNMENT 2 – RELIGIOUS HEALTH CARE
You are working for the consultant. Your job is to identify the issues from the response that should be
considered further by the consultant team and possibly discussed with the governing board and the CEO.
The firm has a rule, “Never offer a criticism or negative finding without suggesting how the client
organization can correct it,” so you must indicate what sort of correction would be recommended as part
of your list. Because you know there were about two dozen other interviews, you decide you should rank
your issues in importance, to make sure the most critical are discussed.
Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you:
1. Describe the five (5) important elements of the governing board’s agenda for areas of
improvement in core functions.
2. Many organizations now use a balanced scorecard or multiple dimensions of performance
measurement, such as productivity, profit, market trends, quality, patient satisfaction, and worker
satisfaction. Describe three (3) key performance dimensions (other than those mentioned here)
and include specific measures that Religious Health Care could use to improve overall
3. Determine the performance measures Religious Health Care could use to evaluate nursing staff
performance in its Emergency Room. Explain the rationale for each performance measure.
