Over the past few weeks, the class has reviewed several topics including the key aspects of workforce management, health policy, and information technology. Applying the information reviewed this week on finance and economics, we will explore how each of these weekly topics are connected from a healthcare administrators’ viewpoint. During each of our weekly readings, information was obtained on the importance of healthcare workforce structures, how policy is created, the significance of quality as well as change management, read about the foundational components of healthcare finance, and learned about the core elements of economics. Based on each of these areas that we have read about during class, discussed during our weekly discussions, and from your own research, you will provide insight to each of these topics, applying the information to the scenario below, for this week’s assignment
