Explain the process of evidence-based analysis.

Analyzing Political Feasibility

For a healthcare organization to be politically viable they must have influential stakeholders. In that, the stakeholders must understand limitations and be able to adopt accordingly. In a minimum of 250 words, discuss the following:

· Highlight and present one key player/stakeholder (i.e., federal, state, or local) in political health policy in your state.

· Choose two state/local/federal healthcare organizations. Then, compare and contrast their political viability in terms of one/more of their health polic(ies).

· Apply the “method for analyzing political feasibility” as defined in Chapter 10 of your textbook to define your key player’s viability.

Evidence-Based Medicine Policy Analysis

Evidence-based medicine (EBM), previously translational medicine, can be defined as improving care based on empirical research and/or hands-on practice. The EBM’s approach is based on either direct patient care (bottom-up) or an experiment translated into guidelines (top-down).  EBM is used in either in conjunction or as quality assessment tool(s) for continuous quality improvement (CQI). The healthcare leader must utilize the evidence to promote healthcare quality.

· Explain the process of evidence-based analysis.

· Highlight the major players and their roles in EBM policy (i.e., government, providers, patients, etc.).

· Explain the EBM “Levels of Evidence” as defined in your course text.

· Review the case “Constraints of the ACA on Evidence-Based Medicine.”

· Provide a written analysis of the case “Constraints of the ACA on Evidence-Based Medicine” in Chapter 9 of your textbook. (Utilize the  “Levels of  Evidence and Grades of  Recommendations” as defined by the University of Minnesota) Clearinghouse.

· Summarize the policy of EBM in your conclusion.
