Assessment 4 | Management homework help

 

Note: Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.

Preparation

Leadership at Vila Health has asked for a cost-benefit analysis to address the pros and cons of having the newly acquired rural hospitals switch to the same health information system currently used by Vila Health.

Complete the Vila Health: HIMS Cost-Benefit Analysis interactive simulation, linked in the Resources. Gather information about the health information system being used by the main hospital. Speak with department heads to obtain their insights, and consider short- and long-term costs and benefits. You may also find it useful to review previous Vila Health simulations.

In addition, use the Capella University Library to explore topics relevant to currently available health information system technology and its costs and benefits.

Requirements

  1. Conduct a cost-benefit analysis to determine the feasibility of the proposed system upgrade. Use the Cost-Benefit Analysis Spreadsheet, linked in the Resources, for your analysis.
  2. Write an executive summary of your findings, recommendations, and rationale for your recommendations.

Note: Remember that you can submit all—or a portion of—your draft executive summary to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.

Document Format and Length

Format your executive summary using APA style.

  • Use the APA Style Paper Template, linked in the Required Resources. An APA Style Paper Tutorial is also provided (linked in the Suggested Resources) to help you in writing and formatting your executive summary. Be sure to include:
    • A title page and references page. An abstract is not required.
    • A running head on all pages.
    • Appropriate section headings.
  • Your executive summary should be 2 pages in length, not including the title page and references page.
Supporting Evidence

Cite at least two sources of credible scholarly or professional evidence to support your cost-benefit analysis.
