As the new chief executive officer (CEO) of the Mucho County Healthcare System, you had earlier noticed that the hospital system was not accredited and certified to participate in some vital healthcare programs within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation for all staff members of the Mucho County Healthcare System to acquaint them with accreditation and certification of healthcare organizations and their influence on healthcare delivery, patient experience, and care outcomes. In your presentation, address the following areas:
Describe the benefits of accreditation and certification on health service delivery.
Explain the role of The Joint Commission in the accreditation of hospitals.
Describe the general areas of operation where quality standards must be met for the accreditation of healthcare organizations.
Critique how these quality standards support health information sharing, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, and patient experience.
Recommend what the Mucho County Healthcare System should do.
Please cite 3–4 references within the last 5 years. Create a minimum of 15 slides with speaker notes where necessary.
Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:
Title page: Remember the running head. The title should be in all capitals.
Length: 5 pages minimum
Abstract: This is a summary of your paper, not an introduction. Begin writing in third person.
Body: This begins on the page following the title page and abstract page and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The typeface should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics, except as required for APA-level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your paper for this assignment is 5 pages. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.
Reference page: References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final page of your paper. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hanging indent, italics, and uppercase and lowercase usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference page is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.
