You have a meeting with Zach Porter, CEO of Piney Woods Hospital, to discuss the issues in the emergency department. Analyze the issues presented in the Piney Woods Hospital Emergency Department Case Study. Then, prepare a 10- to 14-slide presentation that summarizes your analysis.
Using a combination of text, graphics, and charts, prepare your presentation as follows:
You and Zach have a productive meeting, and your analysis helps him understand the cost- and waste-reduction opportunities. For your next meeting, he asks you to develop stretch goals for leveraging those opportunities and to present those goals in a report.
Develop five measureable stretch goals, one for each of the five cost- and waste-reduction opportunities you identified at Piney Woods. The goals should be designed to improve process and quality, and to reduce risk, waste, and cost.
