Policy analysis | HSA 515 – Health Care Policy, Law and Ethics | Strayer University

  Your paper should be 3–5 pages long and should include a title page and references for a total of 5–7 pages. 

Introduction

Organizational policy alignment and adherence to laws and regulations is critical for overall corporate compliance and to decrease organizational risks (patient falls, medication errors, cyber hacks and PHI data breaches, infection control, et cetera). In this assignment, you will select, evaluate, and update one health care provider’s policy related to a significant regulatory risk to the health care organization. 

 

f you do not work in the industry or do not have access to a health care policy, use the  Hahnemann Falls Policy to complete this assignment. Then follow these assignment instructions:

  • As you can see, this policy was written in 2012. Now, imagine you are a health care administrator working at the health care organization where this policy originates from. Analyze the policy, taking into consideration the changes in HIPAA and PHI since 2012. Evaluate what information and where that information would need to be updated for a current revision of this document. Locate the areas where you would update or add information to this 2012 version. Propose revisions that are based on current identified standards and/or new guidelines that you have researched in the text or identified in other high-quality sources (that is, journals, government websites, and the like). Analyze the significance of the selected policy updates as it relates to potential litigation. (Why did the policy need updating? What threats do these changes help avoid?) Summarize your perspective on the revisions as well as any additional changes that should be considered. Present your work as an executive summary suitable for distribution to your organization’s board members.

You should divide the paper using BOLD headings by these areas with at least 1-page (double spaced) response for each section:

  1. Analyze a problematic or dated health care policy, explaining its primary purpose and effectiveness.
  2. Determine the issues the selected policy poses as it is written and any related ramifications.
  3. Research the changes needed to update and align the policy with current standards and guidelines.
  4. Propose revisions that are based on current identified standards and/or new guidelines.
  5. Analyze the significance of the selected policy updates as it relates to potential litigation.
  6. Summarize personal perspective on the revisions as well as any additional changes that should be considered.
  7. Reference page with at least 3 refs in APA format and make sure to use in-text refs
