write 400–600 words that respond to
the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be
the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and
clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas:
You are the director of quality at a
new managed care organization who has been tasked with training new full-time
employees in the area of collecting and organizing data for an upcoming
committee meeting. In preparation for this upcoming meeting, you must help the
new employees identify appropriate steps in collecting, analyzing, and
organizing the data.
To get started, do the following:
Define the concept of collecting data. Identify at least 5 organizations that collect health
care data. Explain the rationale for collecting the data. Explain the importance of organizing and evaluating
data in a health care setting.
Not sure we should create an acronym
in place of an acronym for FTE that already exists. FTE, in common terms,
is full-time equivalent. Students should know what FTE is in that
sense. Recommend re-wording to keep in line with the common language of
the business world.
I agree that the FTE is full-time
equivalent and we will be training employees, not equivalents.
