705.3.4 Patient Care Improvement
The graduate interprets quality assessments and prioritizes patient care improvement needs.
In this task, you will use a tracer methodology to track a patient’s care in order to evaluate the healthcare organization’s systems of providing care and services for a readiness audit. This methodology also makes it possible to assess the healthcare organization’s compliance with Joint Commission standards. This is part of the organization’s compliance with delivering safe, quality healthcare.
You will examine data for a patient that is found in the attached “Accreditation Audit Case Study – Task 3 Artifacts” and find any trends, patterns, and problems. Once these have been identified, you can remediate the concerns.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
