Unit 4 IP: Management Issues


Healthcare managers must deal with three components of healthcare delivery: Access to care, quality of care, and the cost of care. With the move to a value-based care model from fee-for-service, there is a stronger connection between quality of care and payment. Organizations that accredit healthcare facilities, such as The Joint Commission, focus on quality standards. These organizations may also hold what is called deemed status. This means that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services(CMS) will accept accreditation of a healthcare facility by an accrediting organization such as The Joint Commission as meeting the Conditions of Participation (CoPs). Healthcare organizations that meet the CoPs are eligible for reimbursement for the care of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. Thus, the standards for accreditation include those that align with the CoPs. Managers must ensure that their organization meets these standards.

Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 1215 slides, not including the title and reference slides, with 150300 words of speaker’s notes. Review the CMS Conditions of Participation for the type of healthcare organization that you chose in Week 1 and that you have used throughout this course. Include the following in your presentation:

  • Identify at least 2 sections of the CoPs (e.g., patient rights, medical record services).
    • Explain how these sections are implemented in your selected healthcare facility.
    • Compare and discuss how these sections might be implemented differently in another type of healthcare facility.
    • Make recommendations for how your healthcare facility could make improvements to ensure meeting these CoPs.
  • In addition to the two CoPs that you have chosen, describe the Emergency Preparedness CoP and how your healthcare facility will implement this standard.

You can research the CoPs for your chosen healthcare organization in the Code of Federal Regulations at eCFR utilizing the links below:
