As healthcare patients behave more like consumers, they are demanding more personalized
As healthcare patients behave more like consumers, they are demanding more personalized care and higher quality of care. My career objective is to satisfy consumer preferences and address current healthcare issues by applying innovations. In order to achieve this, I would need a holistic understanding of the healthcare system for determining where the problems and inefficiencies are. XYZ is a comprehensive health system with plenty of outpatient facilities, three ACOs, an insurance consortium, etc. Being such a comprehensive health system, XYZ can definitely help fulfill this need.
After getting acclimated to the broad spectrum of the health system, I wanted to gain exposure and learn about how innovations and technologies are operationalized within the health system. I believe that applying innovations in the right place can ultimately drive better patient health outcomes. XYZ fellowship can help because it is such an innovative health system with many innovative initiatives to advance care. XYZ is excel at leveraging technologies to elevate care. There are a wide variety of innovative applications at XYZ. For instance, the innovation projects range from physical matters like robotic surgery to virtual health products. There were also examples of innovation projects which past fellow and current fellow have worked on. These projects include Telemedicine, remote patient monitoring, and robotic transportation project. Hence, XYZ can undoubtedly meet my career objectives by providing me with sufficient ongoing innovation projects at XYZ.
Besides innovations, I also wanted to gain exposure to the strategic planning, business development, and finance aspects of healthcare. I believe that developing a strong business acumen is crucial for healthcare administrators’ success. Besides the individual finance projects, many projects at XYZ carry built-in finance components because the projects need to be financially sustainable to XYZ. Additionally, there were also examples of past fellow projects like the Healthcare Transformation Consortium development which involved strategy and business development. Moreover, XYZ Innovation Studio also offers plenty of business development and strategy opportunities as it is responsible for strategic partnering and business planning with vendors.
XYZ administrative fellowship is able to offer fellows meaningful projects which matter to the organization as well as fellows’ professional development. Participation in high-visibility system projects at XYZ would be highly beneficial to meeting my career objectives. Overall, I am confident XYZ can complement my career goals by offering a comprehensive understanding of the healthcare system and growth opportunities for areas of interest. I also consider myself a great fit for the organizational goal of XYZ Health which is to advance care through the lenses of innovations. This will enable me to integrate myself with XYZ Health and meet its own organizational needs during my fellowship.

Topic 3 DQ 2
After you have determined what sources to include in your literature review to assess employee contributions in the workplace, you must now compile your review and reflect on the implications of all that you have read in the extant literature and how that applies to your research. To what extent might the strengths, weakness, limitations, and delimitations of existing studies indicate strengths, weakness, limitations, and delimitations of your study? Explain.
Note: Rather than providing insights into the topics of employee rewards/compensation or employee retention, focus your discussion post on the research methodology and design to resolve this applied research example.
Touchstone: Analyzing Your Personal Finances SCENARIO: Three months have passed since you
Touchstone: Analyzing Your Personal Finances
SCENARIO: Three months have passed since you created your first financial plan (i.e., the Unit 2 Touchstone). In that time, your budget has gone through some changes. The good news is that your income has increased because of your strong performance at work. However, health care and miscellaneous costs have gone up along with your earnings. You will need to reallocate your monthly budget based on these changes to see how you’re progressing toward your original savings goal.
While you appreciate numbers and figures, you also know that a strong financial analysis needs visual information. As part of your progress check, you’ve committed to creating a set of graphs that you can share with your financial advisor.
ASSIGNMENT: This assignment has two parts. In part 1, you will analyze personal finance data based on the scenario described above. You’ll use your problem solving and agility skills to balance three monthly budgets, and you’ll use your technology skill to graph the spending allocations in each of them. Finally, you’ll sharpen all three skills as you calculate and graph the progress you’re making toward your original savings goal.
In part 2, you will answer reflection questions about the decisions you made, identify how to create more savings opportunities, and make predictions about life and economic impacts that could affect the future of your plan.
For this assignment, you will:
Create three monthly budgets and perform a personal financial analysis using Microsoft Excel.
Summarize changes in expenditures between budgets.
Show the results of the analysis using appropriate graphs in Excel.
Explain how the graph types you have selected will help your financial advisor understand the data.
Discuss the results of the financial analysis including savings achievements, future budget modifications, and life impacts that could derail the budget in the coming year.
Reflect on what the analysis might reasonably look like in one year, accounting for economic factors such as inflation and the consumer price index.
Download the Excel template below, which further breaks down the steps involved in this assignment. You will return the completed template as your Touchstone submission.
