Outsourcing in health care

Outsourcing in health care
Paper details

The focus of this final project is on outsourcing. More and more healthcare organizations are outsourcing as a way to contain cost and respond to labor shortages. For the purpose of this project, assume you are working for a large, primary care hospital that has no experience in outsourcing but would like to investigate this practice.

You have been asked to conduct a research project that focuses on answering four sets of questions:

1.How prevalent is outsourcing in the healthcare industry?
2.Is the outsourcing trend in healthcare growing, and if so in what types of organizations in healthcare?
3.What has been the experience of those healthcare organizations that have tried outsourcing? Has the experience been positive? Have outsourcing results reduced cost?
4.What are some potential areas of service of our hospital that could be outsourced (supplies or manpower)?
5. Which ones are likely to be the easiest to outsource with the largest economic benefit?
6. What are the best practices we should consider to ensure our first outsourcing effort is successful?
7.What are the management and organizational structure changes that might be necessary to support the program?


Please use the following as a guide for this paper. this is the grading rubics:
1. Concludes the prevalence and trends of outsourcing in the industry in specific areas, processes, and services. Evaluates specific types of organizations which have considered this option. Justifies companies offering these services
2. Appraises the literature on success and/or failures in outsourcing. References specific organizations and results.
3.Supports suggestions for areas of service or process, which could be outsourced; why these would offer some economic benefit to the hospital
4. Assesses best practices in out-sourcing including references
5. Evaluates organizational and management changes that would be needed to support this effort.

Please make sure you answer all the questions and follow the rubics for this paper.

Expository Essay: Describe what your products and/or services will be and the pricing strategy involved for your chosen business
Part 1. Expository Essay: Describe what your products and/or services will be and the pricing
strategy involved for your chosen business. Please respond to the following Checklist items:
 Provide an introductory paragraph to explain your business briefly and the intention in writing
this paper.

use and how the competition’s prices have affected your competitiveness in the marketplace.
Pricing Strategies
Penetration Pricing = Pricing below normal, long-term price to gain market share.
Skimming Pricing = Pricing an item high in the short term to capture the prestige market─helps to
recover start-up costs.
Variable Pricing/Dynamic Pricing Strategy = Lower pricing for certain customers based on their ability
to pay. (Amazon uses this type)
Price Lining = Different quality level product of a certain type are priced by category. Ex: Women’s
handbags─Designer bags $300, name brand $200 and all other $100.
Market Pricing = pricing based on the market- what people are willing to pay only works if there is very
little or no competitors.
 Explain whether you will buy on credit and the kind of credit terms you expect from your
suppliers and why.
 Then explain your customer credit policy; explain whether you will extend credit to your
customers and why or why not. If you will extend credit, please describe the terms you expect
to receive and/or extend and why.
 Support your responses with your research in your essay using two APA citations in support of
your descriptions and responses. Remember to include an APA formatted and citation styled
references page at the end of your Assignment.
APA requirements
1. Title page
2. 12 pt. font – Times New Roman (KU required)
3. Reference page
4. Double-spaced
 Provide a short paragraph in conclusion. Unit 6    [209: Small Business Management]
 Make sure to check your grammar and spelling and ensure that your essay is well ordered and
logical in addressing the various checklist items. If you need further help with your writing, go
the Writing Center for additional resources and assistance.

Part 2. Sales Projections: In this section you will use the Unit 6 Assignment template (Excel file)
located in Doc Sharing or here:
http://extmedia.kaplan.edu/business/AB209/AB209_1402C/209_u6template.xlsx to compute the
following:
How much do you think you will sell the first 3 months; 6 months, and 1 year? Show how you did the
math in this answer. For example, I expect to have 3 customers a day for the first month, 5 the
second month, 7 the third month, and that equals 300 customers the first 3 months.
Multiply the number of sales by your average price to get the first 3 month’s sales. For
example, if you have the 300 customers stated in question 4, and the average selling price is
$20, then you will have $6000 in sales the first 3 months.

Use the internet and other sources to research and evaluate historical and present economics associated with the production of palm oil in Borneo. Define in precise terms how important the industry is presently to the economy of Borneo.

Submit: A report (pdf) plus excel spreadsheet. The report is to be no longer than

~2000 words (penalties will be applied if exceeded by more than 20%).

Format: Type using 12 font size, arial or times new roman font, single line

spaced. Structure sentences into paragraphs, leaving a single blank line

between paragraphs. Use your excel spreadsheet to generate graphs

which explain the analysis that you have undertaken. Organise your

report into sections with headings and sub-headings, and then auto

generate a table of contents (TOC) using your report headings. Describe

all findings from your excel spreadsheet analysis in your report, as your

excel spreadsheet will be looked at only briefly.

References: Include a single reference list at the end of the report. Try to source

some refereed journal (ie. non-internet) high quality references. Use intext

citation of your references. The Harvard system of referencing must

be used. Do not use too many references, just cite the most important/

pertinent ones.

Extension policy: No extension allowed except in extenuating circumstances – see Course

Warning about plagiarism

You will be severely penalised if it is found that you have copied verbatim from the work of other authors, including

from web sites. You may quote the work of others but quotations should be used sparingly. For each question,
quotations should amount to no more than 5 per cent of the specified word limit for that question, and each quotation

must be cited correctly.

Plagiarism detection software may be used to check your assignment.

To answer the assignment questions you are expected to consult your study package and other sources. However, the

work you submit as your own work has to be in your own words. You are encouraged to discuss the concepts covered

in the assignment questions with your classmates and others, but you should not release your written responses to the

questions to anyone except the University. Students submitting a section or sections of assignment work which is the

same as other students’ work will be severely penalised.

Further information about plagiarism can be found on the University website.

Assignment Two Task – spreadsheet and report (word limit : 2000) (200 marks)

Economic analysis of future Palm Oil Production in Borneo

1) Use the internet and other sources to research and evaluate historical and present

economics associated with the production of palm oil in Borneo. Define in precise terms

how important the industry is presently to the economy of Borneo.

2) Imagine that you are the chief engineer working for a large international firm in Borneo,

and that government of Borneo has asked your best advice. What alternative forms of

agriculture/industry it might be appropriate for Borneo to invest into, and what is the

likely level of investment required ? What employment would be provided and what

would be the likely ‘flow-on-benefits’ from your chosen alternative enterprise ?

3) Set up an excel spreadsheet (similar to the example provided to you on ENG2002

studydesk, named NPVCalc). Set up your spreadsheet to calculate, using the Net Present

Value (NPV) economic calculation method, the future profitability of the industry. Use

your spreadsheet to calculate the effect of the following scenarios :-

i) reducing palm oil investment by 5% each year for the next 50 years and/or

indefinitely

ii) increasing palm oil investment by 5% each year for the next 50 years and/or

indefinitely

iii) maintaining palm oil investment at the current level (NPV level) for the next 50

years and/or indefinitely

Please note that you can run scenario (i) where new agriculture/industry gradually competes

with and replaces earlier enterprises. Run your NPV simulations (graphical analysis) using

interest rates on borrowed money scenarios of 3,6,9,12,15 and 18%.

NB. if the cost of borrowing money is added to all the other business costs, eg. asset and

equipment depreciation, maintenance costs, labour costs, government taxation, cost of

environmental rehabilitation, and falling future commodity price due to competing industries,

then this can be all added together to produce what is known in economics as the ‘discount

rate’. Based upon historical performance data, this is what banks and lending institutions use

to assess risk, and it is how they calculate what interest rate to charge against money lent to

the various different industries.

4) Of course you have to research, study and make many assumptions (educated guesses)

with this type of economic analysis, eg. future commodity prices, growth/stagnation in

population and other parts of the economy. Clearly state your assumptions in the

methodology section to your report.

5) Summarise the finding of your economic analysis in a report no longer than 2000 words,

or about ten pages in length including diagrams (including graphs).

MARKING CRITERIA

A marking rubric will be used to provide you with feedback when your assignment is

marked. It will be based upon :-

1) Quality/organisation of findings, as written and produced in the report (20%)

2) Quality/organisation of excel spreadsheet based future profitability analysis (20%)

3) Quality, description and interpretation of graphs, as produced in the report (20%)

4) Clear statement of assumptions made in your analysis (20%)

5) Level/quality of background research undertaken (20%)
