Quality Healthcare: Measuring NP Performance



PurposeThe purpose of this assignment is to have students research the measurement tools of NP performance. Through the use of quality patient outcomes, student will list and discuss three different patient interventions and how they would specifically measure the outcomes and h o w these primary care interventions result in improved patient outcomes and cost savings for the practice. In addition, students will discuss how these interventions result in improved patient ratings. Activity Learning OutcomesThrough this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:1. Employ strategies to impact the development, implementation, and consequences of holistic healthcare policies using evidence-based practice principles (CO1)2. Critically analyze how healthcare systems and APRN practice are organized and influenced by ethical, legal, economic, and political factors (CO2)3. Demonstrate professional and personal growth concerning the advocacy role of the advanced practice nursing in fostering policy within diverse healthcare settings (CO3)4. Analyze social, historical, ethical, and political contexts of healthcare policies and advanced practice leadership (CO4)5. Advocate for institutional, local, national, and international policies that fosters person-centered healthcare and nursing practice (CO5).Students are expected to submit assignments by the time they are due. Assignments submitted after the due date and time will receive a deduction of 10% of the total points possible for that assignment for each day the assignment is late. Assignments will be accepted, with penalty as described, up to a maximum of three days late, after which point a zero will be recorded for the assignment. Quizzes and discussions are not considered assignments and are not part of the late assignment policy.Total Points Possible: 200Requirements:The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) was formed to ensure quality of patient care and measurement of patient outcomes with set standards.Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) is a performance measurement tool used by millions of health insurance plans. There are 6 domains of care:· Effectiveness of Care.· Access/Availability of Care.· Experience of Care.· Utilization and Risk Adjusted Utilization.· Health Plan Descriptive Information.· Measures Collected Using Electronic Clinical Data SystemsYou may access the 6 domains of care by clicking this link:(NCQA, n.d. https://www.ncqa.org/hedis/ (Links to an external site.) )As an APN, productivity will be an important measurement for the practice to determine reimbursement and salary. Fee-for-service practices will require a set number of patients per day to maintain productivity. A capitated practice will require the APN to have a large panel of patients but also will focus on controlling costs. This can be accomplished through effective primary care that is accessible, convenient for the patients and has a method of measuring quality of care.Write a formal paper in APA format with title page, introduction, the three required elements below, conclusion and reference page.You are now employed as an NP in primary care. Choose one performance measure from one of the six domains of care, i.e. Adult BMI Assessment, Prenatal and Postpartum care, etc.Develop three different patient interventions for that one performance measure and how you would specifically implement the intervention and measure the outcomes for that particular performance measure in clinical practice.How would these primary care interventions result in improved patient outcomes and health care cost savings?How can these interventions result in improved NP patient ratings?CategoryPoints%DescriptionList and discuss three different patient interventions and how you would specifically measure the outcomes.6030%From the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) website, discuss three patient interventions for the one performance measure.Develop a measurement tool to track patient outcomes.How would these primary care interventions result in improved patient outcomes and cost savings for the practice?6030%Discuss how the interventions can result in improved patient outcomes and cost savings for the practice.How can these interventions result in improved patient ratings?6030%Discuss how these interventions can result in improved patient ratings (an NP’s patient scorecard).18090%Total CONTENT Points= 180 ptsCategoryPoints%DescriptionClarity of Writing105%Excellent use of standard English showing original thought.
