  • Draft a 3-5 page change proposal to executive leaders, soliciting their support for a change to the health care system in the community you selected in the previous assessment.
    Introduction
    To improve health care outcomes within a community, leaders must understand the needs of specific populations. In addition, it is important that leaders are able to gather and present persuasive evidence to decision makers to obtain the necessary funding and establish these needs as priorities for budget and resource planning. Thus, proposed changes should support improved outcomes and align with the current or needed health care policy.
    This assessment provides an opportunity to propose a community health care change that is based on the community health assessment you completed in Assessment 2.
    Preparation
    Your community health assessment was well received by the executives at Vila Health. Consequently, they have asked you to recommend a change in the community that will improve health outcomes. They have also asked you to submit your recommendation in a formal change proposal. You are confident that you can present a strong case for change, including a financial plan, that will ensure the success of this initiative.
    In this assessment, you will draft a change proposal to executive leaders to solicit support for a change to the current community health care system. To prepare for the assessment, you are encouraged to begin thinking about your justification for establishing the recommended change as a priority, a strategy for leading change, and how the change will be funded. In addition, you may wish to:

    Change Proposal

    A change regarding healthcare is successful when health organizations and professionals

    identify the required change and get a chance to influence it. Other significant factors that

    contribute to a successful change are the preparedness of professionals, recognizing of the

    benefits and value of the change, and knowing its health outcomes (Nilsen et al., 2020). A change

    proposal plays a vital role in the identification of change, its value, benefits, and outcomes. In

    this assessment, I will draft a change proposal, soliciting the support of executive leaders for

    health-related change in the Jordan Community.

  • Summary
  • Benefits and Implication

    The major health issues in the Jordan community were related to imbalanced

    socioeconomic status, water contamination, and poor air quality (JordanMN, 2021). Due to

    economic differences, several people were included in a low-income

    population

    . Such a

    population has to face several health disparities like difficulty in dealing with the cost of

    healthcare services, lack of regular hospital visits due to costly health insurance, and lack of

    health access due to expensive management of chronic health conditions (Capella University,

    n.d.). Poor economic status is linked with several other aspects of the community such as

    education, healthcare access, living standards, and safety (Lago et al., 2018). The poor conditions

    of water and air in the community also contribute to several health conditions including cholera,

    diarrhea, asthma, respiratory disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (Manisalidis et

    al., 2020). And such conditions are difficult to manage for people, especially those belonging to

    low economic status.

    3

    Keeping all the issues of the community in view, the proposed change is the use of

    telehealth services and the initiative of free medical camps every six months. The goals of the

    change include spreading awareness about safety measures, access to affordable healthcare, and

    free medical check-ups for the poor population (Haque et al., 2022; Pathak et al., 2019).

    Telehealth services have several direct benefits as they will provide the community with easy

    access to low-cost healthcare. Low-income people will be able to get affordable healthcare

    through online visits (Kichloo et al., 2020). Moreover, the people affected by waterborne health

    conditions and air pollution will get treatment and safety awareness through telehealth services.

    Free medical camps will be arranged every six months to support the low-income population

    who cannot buy costly health insurance. Moreover, they will be directed to get affordable health

    insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) (Isola & Reddivari, 2021). The health disparities

    in the Jordan community will be addressed by the combination of telehealth and free medical

    camps. The change will improve the overall health of the community by improving the existing

    health disparities.

    Pathak et al., (2019) conducted a study in India, where 60% of the population does not

    have access to basic healthcare, to check the effectiveness of the medical camps to address the

    health access issue. They found the intervention beneficial for the population’s health and

    suggested similar interventions should be followed in the future. Moreover, Haque et al., (2022)

    conducted a study based on questionnaires to find the use of telehealth services in different

    populations. They found that low-income people were one of the populations who were mostly

    associated with the use of telehealth services.

    The agreement of all stakeholders is essential for the approval of the proposed change

    (Boaz et al., 2018). Making them agree to the change is not an easy job. Stakeholders include

    4

    patients and funders or payers as well. Patients can feel hesitant to utilize new arrangements due

    to misconceptions (Mahmoud et al., 2022). On the other hand, private funders and payers need to

    know about the profit and benefits of the change because they have to offer financial support. To

    avoid the risk of stakeholders jumping to unfounded conclusions, presentations should be

    arranged that will focus on the direct benefits of the proposed change. Moreover, the community

    can acknowledge the benefits through pamphlets and awareness campaigns (Seymour, 2018).

    Potential Barriers to Change

    Although telehealth services are beneficial and easy to access, several barriers can be

    faced while the implementation of the change. As the Jordan community contains people from

    different ethnicities, cultural and language barriers may affect the services. Moreover, people can

    feel hesitant to use online consultations due to misconceptions, privacy issues, or hearing issues

    (Mao et al., 2022; Žagar et al., 2019). According to Busso et al. (2022), people can also feel

    hesitant to use telehealth services due to a lack of technology knowledge, mistrust of online

    services, and behavioral biases. Another barrier that can hinder the proposed change is the

    availability of the internet and knowledge of technology for telehealth services at the user level.

    The resistance to the use of telehealth services and medical camps can be due to cultural

    diversity and privacy-related misconceptions (Žagar et al., 2019; Zhang et al., 2020). A lack of

    cultural competence in telehealth providers reduces patient satisfaction and hinders the effective

    use of the initiative (Hilty et al., 2020). At the organizational level, the lack of cultural or lingual

    competence and technical challenges can create resistance to telehealth change. The study by

    Žagar et al., (2019) analyzed the barriers to medical camps and found several factors contributing

    to the hindrance. Two of them were cultural diversity and language barriers. Kalicki et al., (2021)

    5

    presented research that showed two major barriers to telehealth services e.g., video meetings

    internet issues, and unavailability to support technology use.

    Change Drivers

    Drivers of change are factors or people that contribute to the development and

    implementation of a change. In this case, the potential drivers of change are health professionals,

    volunteers, management, and the involvement of stakeholders in decision-making. My vision for

    change is the provision of affordable healthcare and the improvement of health conditions in the

    Jordan community by removing health disparities.

    Change Model

    The change model used here is the Complex Adaptive System (CAS) which takes a

    healthcare change as a dynamic system. It integrates agents or changes drivers from different

    areas and integrates them under one context where the drivers collaborate by adapting each

    other’s actions (Gomersall, 2018). The expected outcomes are a reduction in health disparities,

    improved healthcare access, and improvement in cost-related health issues. The time expected

    for the change is almost 60 days. The plan will be evaluated every fifteen days through surveys.

    The reason behind keeping the evaluation period fifteen days is to get an idea of the early

    success of the project. The purpose of the evaluation will be to check the effectiveness and

    progress of the proposed change. Approval to change, collection of financial and human

    resources, technological arrangements, and preparation of awareness campaigns, presentations,

    and medical camps are included in this time framework. Communication with stakeholders

    (patients, payers, professionals) is crucial for the successful implementation of the change. It can

    be done through presentations for stakeholders, and seminars for the target population focused on

    the need and requirement for the mitigation of resistance. The conflict among competing

    6

    interests will be resolved by training health professionals to get the technological expertise

    needed for telehealth. They will be trained to practice cultural and lingual competency. Also,

    informing the community about the benefits of telehealth services will reduce the conflict

    (Bhaskar et al., 2020).

    Stakeholder Communications

    Strategies for Stakeholders

    The strategies to help stakeholders understand the proposed changes will include

    presentations and training sessions. The presentation will be arranged for all the stakeholders,

    including payers, nurses, management, and other involved professionals while the training

    sessions will be conducted for nurses and the providers who will execute telehealth technology.

    For community members, seminars will be arranged to enhance their knowledge of technology

    and clear misconceptions about telehealth services. The changes will be evaluated through

    surveys and the dissemination of questionnaires among nurses and community members because

    it is imperative to know both sides of perceptions for effective evaluation of the project (Gaur et

    al., 2020). The key stakeholders for the change will be the hospital management, the target

    population of the Jordan Community, health professionals, and financial supporters.

    Influence of Stakeholders

    The overall influence of the stakeholders on the community is that change cannot be

    implemented without their involvement. Health professionals need to be trained in telehealth

    services (Haleem et al., 2021). Financial supporters will provide funds to arrange seminars and

    medical camps, install telehealth systems, and other campaigns. The management will organize

    the system and allocate financial and human resources as per requirements.

    7

    Data for Decision Makers

    The data and information provided to the decision makers will include demographic data

    of the community, potential benefits and risks of the proposed change, the time required for the

    implementation, and expenses needed for the whole change proposal.

    Effect of Changes on Organization

    The changes will also affect the healthcare organization. For example, the proper

    allocation of financial resources will help reduce the financial burden on the hospital related to

    the emergency department (Radinmanesh et al., 2021). Moreover, the training of healthcare

    providers will help the professionals keep a work-life balance by not wasting time on technical

    issues (Haleem et al., 2021).

    Buy-In Engagement of Stakeholders

    Presentation and training sessions for stakeholders (nurses, payers, and professionals)

    will engage them in the project. Moreover, financial incentives for best-performing health

    providers can also increase their buy-in (Martin et al., 2020).

  • Budget Associated with the Proposed Change
  • A project manager will be leading the budget-related change in the organization. The

    major budget will be required for telehealth implementation and salaries. The startup cost will

    include software installment and equipment purchase ($50,000). Then, the cost will be required

    for its maintenance ($10,000) (Horiachko, 2022). Medical camps in the first year will cost

    $12,000 to the hospital. Travel and other costs will add $3,900 to the total expenses of the

    proposed change (Guiding Light Orphans, n.d.). The budget information will be provided to the

    stakeholders to inform them of the details of the changed proposal and the purpose of the

    8

    required money. Moreover, the documents of the change proposal along with its financial

    expenditures will be signed by all major stakeholders involved in funding and decision-making.

  • Conclusion
  • The change proposal for improving health disparities in the Jordan Community is crucial

    as it affects the community’s overall quality of life. The implementation of telehealth services

    and free medical camps will improve the community’s health condition. There might be potential

    barriers to the change, but they can be minimized using certain strategies. The involvement of

    stakeholders is imperative for the successful implementation of the change.

  • Appendix A: Grant Proposal
  • Need Proposal

    The main issue identified in the Jordan Community is the existence of socioeconomic

    differences, and poor water, and air quality that cause different health conditions in the

    community (Best Places, n.d.; JordanMN, 2021). The issue is affecting the Jordan community,

    especially the low-income population. The proposed change for the community is aimed at

    providing cost-effective healthcare and awareness to the community through telehealth services

    and free medical camps. The potential barriers could be a lack of telehealth awareness among the

    community, technical issues, misconceptions, and hesitance to the use of telehealth. The need for

    change was defined through a windshield survey. Further efforts can be added to the change for

    addressing the problem.

    Program Description

    The reason behind the implementation of telehealth is its economic viability for the

    organization and the community. Moreover, the services will help the organization reach more

    patients in the community regardless of their cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Free

    medical camps after six months will provide free check-ups for low-income populations in the

    community. The change will involve all the stakeholders like health organizations, professionals,

    community members, nurses, project managers, and payers. The project will take 60 days to

    implement.

    Goals and Objectives

    The goals of the proposed initiative are:

     Provision of cost-effective healthcare to patients, especially low-income

    population

    14

     Free medical checkups for the low-income population

     Making healthcare access easy for more patients

     Improving cost management for chronic diseases

    Program Evaluation

    A survey team will be developed to evaluate the program. The team will include members

    from Jordan Community for better evaluation. The survey will be conducted every fifteen days,

    in the beginning, to check the improvement in the community’s health after the implementation

    of the change. After that, the evaluation time will be increased to a period of thirty days. The

    survey will be led by disseminating questionnaires and taking interviews with community

    members and health providers. The evaluation reports will be presented to the supervisor. Key

    stakeholders including funders will be given copies of the reports to inform them about the

    progress of the plan.

    Summary

    The change is important to the community because it will improve the existing health

    disparities due to socioeconomic differences and low quality of water and air. The primary

    objective of the plan is easy to access to affordable or free healthcare while the funding

    organization also aims to improve health coverage at affordable prices. That is why both

    objectives are well aligned with each other. The financial support of the funders is essential as

    the hospital and Jordan community are not very stable financially. In the end, I would thank the

    funding agencies for considering and supporting the initiative financially.

    • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

      We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

      We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.

    • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

      Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

      After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

    • How will I receive a completed paper?

      You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
    • Where do I upload files?

      When you submit your first order, you get a personal account where you can track all your orders, their statuses, your payments, and discounts. Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page. Please consider uploading everything you find necessary for our writer to perform at the highest standard.
