Strategic planning is the process or mechanism used by healthcare organizations to analyze new regulations, policies, and procedures and to reconsider their mission, vision, and values. Strategic planning can also be the vehicle that healthcare organizations use to revamp themselves and offer new products and services. The healthcare manager plays an important role in analyzing and executing the organizational strategic planning. Understanding the key principles and competencies associated with strategic planning, and how these principles and competencies are applied in day-to-day hospital operations, is critical for healthcare managers. This final project will provide you the opportunity to analyze strategic planning within a healthcare organization, including identification of stakeholders and the role they serve in the process and the alignment between strategic planning and the organization’s mission and vision.

Assess the impact of current healthcare policies on strategic planning processes in the U.S. healthcare system. Employ strategic planning tools in determining the impact of external forces on the delivery of care in the U.S. healthcare system. Assess how key stakeholders influence and drive strategic planning changes within healthcare organizations. Determine the extent to which strategic planning aligns with organizational missions and visions within healthcare settings Prompt For your final project, you will select a case study from those provided to analyze and make subsequent recommendations to the healthcare manager on the best course of action with regard to policy and strategic planning.
