Assignment: Health Care Change Management

The dissemination of EBP results serves multiple important roles. Sharing results makes the case for your decisions. It also adds to the body of knowledge, which creates opportunities for future practitioners. By presenting results, you also become an advocate for EBP, creating a culture within your organization or beyond that informs, educates, and promotes the effective use of EBP.

To Prepare:

  • Review the final PowerPoint presentation you submitted in Module 5, and make any necessary changes based on the feedback you have received and on lessons you have learned throughout the course.
  • Consider the best method of disseminating the results of your presentation to an audience.

To Complete:

Create a 5-minute, 5- to 6-slide narrated PowerPoint presentation of your Evidence-Based Project.

  • Be sure to incorporate any feedback or changes from your presentation submission in Module 5.
  • Explain how you would disseminate the results of your project to an audience. Provide a rationale for why you selected this dissemination strategy.

the healthcare facility in which I work is called Upper Hill Care located in California. Some of the characteristic that make our c healthcare facility distinct from others are tied to our culture which is characterized by

Friendly communications

Respects for all people

Embracing diversity

Equality and

Prioritizing the needs of our clients

Readiness for change

Our organization is always prepared for changes such as outbreaks of pandemics that can lead to surges in number of patients in various ways such as:

Training of employees on working in stressful environment

Having extra care equipment’s like beds, ventilators and others

Preparing for risks through insurance covers (“Preparing for change in your organization: A how-to guide,” 2019)

Some factors that prepare our firm for changes include. Flexible, secure infrastructure

Data mastery

Digitally savvy, open talent networks

Ecosystem engagement

Intelligent workflows

Unified customer experience

Business model adaptability

Again, a digital maturity model is essential for any organization undergoing change – especially those undergoing digital transformation.

Current challenge and opportunity for change

Some of the current challenges facing our healthcare facility include

Lack of adequate trained nurses and doctors

Financial deficits

Increased employee turnover

Misappropriation of the firm resources

Increased burden of medical errors

Low wages

Little time to spend with clients (Shannon Barnet, Molly Gamble, Heather Punke, Emily Rappleye, Ellie Rizzo and Tamara Rosin, n.d.)

According to the CareerBuilder survey, the provider shortage is hitting every healthcare organization in the country — especially when it comes to nurses. Forty percent of healthcare workers responded that they felt challenged by work overload at their jobs; the number jumped to 48 percent when the pool was limited to only nurses. The survey also identified a key turnover issue in healthcare workers taking on additional responsibilities above their comfort level. The provider shortage means fewer staff members must divide a significant workload, pushing some employees to the brink of exhaustion and decreasing job satisfaction considerably.

opportunities

Some of the opportunities available for the firm include

Diversifying the health care services

Opening new branches in other towns

Outsourcing employees form hiring agencies

Increasing research and development

Smart contracts among others (Medal, n.d.)

Evidence based idea for change

The evidence based idea for change is available for conditions like

Asthma

Heart failures and

Diabetes

The changes in the healthcare is believed to have potential of

Transforming clients and healthcare workers behavior

Minimizing case of asthma, heart failure and diabetes

Create a more conducive working environment

Increase customers satisfaction (“evidence for evidence-based practice implementation – Patient safety and quality – NCBI bookshelf,” n.d.)

When viewing steps of the EBP process through the lens of an end user, the process begins with selecting an area for improving care based on evidence (rather than asking what findings ought to be disseminated); determining the priority of the potential topic for the organization; formulating an EBP team composed of key stakeholders; finding, critiquing, and synthesizing the evidence; setting forth EBP recommendations, with the type and strength of evidence used to support each clearly documented; determining if the evidence findings are appropriate for use in practice; writing an EBP standard specific to the organization; piloting the change in practice; implementing changes in practice in other relevant practice areas (depending on the outcome of the pilot); evaluating the EBP changes; and transitioning ongoing quality improvement (QI) monitoring, staff education, and competency review of the EBP topic to appropriate organizational groups as defined by the organizational structure.

Plan of knowledge transfer

The plan of knowledge transfer will encompass the following

Supporting current workforce through transitions

Storing insights form leaving employees

Shortening the ramp-up time for new hires

The flowing questions will be answered

Which area of organization faces significant threat of knowledge loss?

How much information do we need?

How much data should we store and disseminate?

How are we going to ensure that transferred information? And

How to determine success of knowledge transfer play?

If that scenario sounds familiar, you’re not alone: many organizations struggle to formalize knowledge transfer processes before the point of departure. But even beyond employee exits, there are plenty of reasons to develop a knowledge transfer strategy. Consider how a strong knowledge sharing process might impact your onboarding and intern programs, or employees transferring to a new role.

A knowledge transfer program gives you a strong foundation for growing and developing team members and streamlining personnel changes. And the good news is that it doesn’t have to be complicated: a solid, step-by-step strategy is all you need to gather knowledge and transfer it to those who need it.

Measurable outcomes

Some of the measurable outcome of the plan my include

Changes in the firms profits

Changes in the level of employee retention

Increase in performance efficiency

Increased customer satisfaction levels

Decrease in complaints among others

conclusion

All health care facilities experience challenges such as hi employee turnovers, workplace stress resulting form being overworked among others. Despite these challenges healthcare facilities have vast orpptunities for expansion and growth such as diversifying their services, spreading risks and relocating to other places.it is critical to ensure there are effective change management and knowledge transfer plans to ensure that the workforces in equipped with critical information that will enable healthcare facilities to remain competitive.
