A Healthcare Consultant
You are a healthcare consultant hired by the Eastcoast Healthcare System to assist in evaluating an organization’s strategic plan for the next 5 years. The plan will shape the development of a comprehensive network of services for the community. You’ve been asked to give a presentation to the board of directors on options for restructuring the local delivery of healthcare services. The hospital’s president has asked you to focus your presentation on the common elements of a comprehensive delivery system and to highlight innovative methods to restructure. The presentation will lay out the requirements of an integrated healthcare delivery system and include how much emphasis should be placed on what types of primary, secondary, tertiary, long-term care, and palliative care services, and why.
