When reviewing the Middleboro Physician Care Services case we learn that it is a for-profit corporation that was founded in 2008 and offers non-emergent care services within two locations. One of them at the Alpha center outside of the city limits of Middleboro and the other is at the Beta center in Jasper. Both of these locations offer ambulatory medical care services that are provided on a walk in basis. These centers do not offer any emergency services, and if a patient were to arrive that needed emergency services and ambulance will be called to transport the patient to the nearest emergency department. Physician Care Services specializes in providing services to the public that are convenient. One of their main goals is patient satisfaction, however Physician Care Services are currently faced with numerous challenges and opportunities that have the potential to impact their profitability. Therefore it is important to have good metrics in place so that Physician Care Services can progress towards meeting there patient satisfaction goals and objectives, as well as helping keep track of their progression.(Seidel, L. F., & Lewis, J. B,2014).
In this case Physician Care Services should re-engineer the entire organization in order to make changes into the way they operate. Of the ways that they can do this is by benchmarking in which PCS takes a look at other organizations and sees what they are doing, how well they provide their services, as well as to how inexpensive they…
lateral force is applied to the car. For each foot the water rises up the side of the car, the car displaces 1,500 pounds of water. In effect, the car weighs 1,500 pounds less for each foot the water rises. Most vehicles will float in just 2 feet of water. -
3. Type of flows and danger
i. Turbulent Flow (ROUGH) : flow in which the fluid undergoes irregular fluctuations, or mixing. In turbulent flow the speed of the fluid at a point is continuously undergoing changes in both magnitude and…
In the same fashion, and of equal importance, the obtained information must be disseminated to stakeholders. The purpose of disseminating evidence is to increase the knowledge and incorporate the use of the evidence-based intervention (Agency for Health Care research and Quality [AHRQ], 2012). According to AHRQ (2012), one must consider how to disperse the information, increase the stakeholder’s motivation to incorporate the evidence, and enable the stakeholders to use and apply the evidence.…
The design and management of accurate processes are the foundation to any operation. Effective process design is the basis for all successful operations management practices; therefore it is important to fully understand it.
What is Process Design?
Process design involves understanding the characteristics of the product to determine the appropriate manufacturing techniques; it “translates product design into the technical knowledge, organizational capabilities and operating…
• Flowcharts are the visual representations of a process. The shapes represent steps, outputs or decisions to be made during the execution of a process. Use a flowchart to document the process. Keep the steps succinct and use subject-matter experts to create the flowchart. Have associates who are not as familiar with the process use the flowchart to execute the process. This will help validate the flowchart. Look for loops in the process. A loop is a series of steps that could…
ACC305 Excel Flowchart Project (10 points)
1. Discuss the internal control weaknesses in the flowchart. Propose recommended fixes to the situation
(you may have to involve other individuals or system controls to address the weaknesses).
It would be better if the head of the startup entity, who approves the purchases, was not the same person
who receives the ordered materials. Having the same person approve the purchases and receive the materials is
problematic because that individual…

Workflow assessment of health information technology (HIT) is essential in changing the efficiency, safety, and quality of practices (Mastrian & McGonigle, 2015). The workflow process promotes the acquirement and application of detailed information which can lead to positive changes, maximize resource utilization and minimize repetitive activities of workflow patterns, so healthcare quality and value significantly improve. The flowchart creates visual graphics to…
treatment plan. The flowchart process aims to prevent delays in taking actions in responding to critical tests that may have the potential for serious harm to the patient. The process begins when spectra lab calls the clinic with a critical lab value. Once the critical lab value is received from spectra lab the authorized staff such as clinic manager or registered nurse have to receive the information and communicate the critical lab value by writing it down and reading back the lab value to the…
Process Improvement Initiatives
1. When undergoing a process improvement initiative how important is it to use a process map and why?
It is important to use a process map when undergoing a process improvement initiative because it provides a visual module of the process steps that can be analyzed and evaluated to make process improvements. Mapping the series of activities required also provides a detailed illustration of how each components correlates to one another to…
Step1: Start the program
Step2: Initialize the nodes by fixing the number of nodes, type of antenna used, type of routing protocol and plotting circumference
Step3: Frequency is allocated for the MIMO antennas.
Step4: Positioning and plotting the nodes
Step5: Base Bandwidth allocation for primary and secondary nodes
• Primary network range- 2.4GHz - 2.485GHz
• Secondary network range- 433.4MHz - 473MHz
Step6: Setting time for node movement to move and setting the destination
Step7: Traffic is…
