Background reading:

To begin, imagine you have just finished your MHA and you have accepted a job offer to work for the strategy group of a healthcare consulting firm. Your first project is developing a strategy for a community health center. Your firm has been hired by Dr. Novak, a well-known endocrinologist working with Western Hospital. He is passionate about prevention and early intervention of diabetes. He has led the effort to establish a community-based program to ensure ongoing treatment for this deadly disease for Hispanic seniors in the Lowertown community. His vision is that patients receive diabetes education and ongoing treatment in the language of their choice and in a culturally appropriate manner. Proper treatment and preventive care will improve patients’ quality of life while reducing hospitalizations from diabetes complications.

Dr. Novak and his advisors plan to apply for funding from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s Community Health Center Fund to establish the Center for Diabetes Care. The fund supports the operation, expansion, and construction of community health centers. Before he can apply for the grant, Dr. Novak needs approval from the board of directors of Western Hospital. The board requires a detailed business case and strategic plan for the initiative.

You will create a detailed report that includes a business plan and strategic plan based on the documentation provided and any additional research you conduct. You will also summarize the business case in a slide presentation to Western Hospital’s board of directors. Finally, you will present a report to Dr. Novak outlining the business risks of opening the center and providing strategies for managing those risks.

It is November and the plan is to open the center the following April (17 months from today), which coincides with the start of Western Hospital’s fiscal year.

Based on this information create a 15- to 20-page report in which you build a strategic plan and business plan for the Center for Diabetes Care, which extends the reach of Western Hospital and promotes positive health outcomes. This report will be distributed to board members and the CEO prior to the presentation, and a grant proposal will be prepared based on the material in the report. The report should include text, charts, graphics, and financial data. Provide references and sources. The report must include:

The oral presentation should include a 10- to 12-slide presentation in which text, charts, graphics, and financial data are presented. The presentation should also provide references and sources. As you develop the presentation, consider the information that your audience will need to know to make a decision on whether to approve Dr. Novak’s application for the grant. This information would include how the Center for Diabetes Care would:
    • Address unmet needs of the community that Western Hospital serves.
    • Improve health outcomes for the community, which will lead to positive social change.
    • Be structured to ensure cultural competency with the patient population.
