OPTION #1: PROVIDING HEALTH SERVICES IN A RURAL COMMUNITY: A PRESENTATION ON PROJECT FEASIBILITY
Providing healthcare services to residents in rural areas has presented increased challenges that include access and cost. For your Capstone Project, you will be using a case study that focuses on Pocahontas Memorial Hospital located in Pocahontas County, West Virginia. Pocahontas Memorial Hospital (PMH) would like to offer a comprehensive satellite health clinic within Pocahontas County. You have been contracted to prepare a presentation for the PMH Board of Directors to guide them in determining the feasibility of opening a satellite clinic as part of a strategic initiative for their annual strategic management planning process. Present your feasibility report as PowerPoint slides with added presentation notes to support the content on the slides or other presentation/graphic format. Supporting narrative content with associated citations is required for the diagrams.
Your presentation should be organized according to the following structure and contain the elements described:
- Introduction: This is where you introduce your audience to what this report will cover.
- Description of PMH and potential project
- Discussion of whether the organization’s mission, vision, and goals support the project
- Assessment: This is your evaluation of various factors that affect the feasibility and development of the project.
- Internal and external stakeholders involved and their buy-in for this project
- Internal and external environmental challenges (e.g., access for consumers, medical equipment, technology, community involvement required)
- A market analysis
- A SWOT analysis
- Recommendations and Implementation: This is where you detail your recommendations and strategies for implementation. Your recommendations should be based directly on what you outlined in your assessment.
- Strategies for attracting healthcare professionals and staff
- Feasibility for development of a satellite clinic
- Value-adding support and resources (e.g., equipment, technology, etc.)
- Develop strategic initiatives
- Short- and long-terms plans for implementation of strategic initiatives
- Brief discussion of how you will evaluate and benchmark this project
- Conclusion: This brief summary should pull together your assessment and recommendations and leave the audience with a clear sense of what can be done.
Your well-written presentation should meet the following requirements:
- Be 12–15 slides in length, not including the cover or reference slides or appendices.
- Be formatted for a formal presentation including headings per slide, major points per slide, and presentation notes or embedded audio to supplement each slide provided as if you were doing the actual presentation.
- Include the strategic thinking maps and content you created for the earlier module assignments. They may be added in addition to/or as a part of the 12-15 slides of content or moved to the Appendix section.
- Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
- Provide support for your statements with full APA in-text citations from a minimum of ten (10) scholarly references—five of these references must be from outside sources and five may be from course readings, lectures, and textbooks. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
- Include full market analysis and SWOT analysis diagrams in the Appendix of the slideshow, but present your narrative discussion of each in the Assessment section of your presentation
