Overview: The final project for this course is the creation of a payment system and reimbursement method analysis and a report to management.
Your final project for this course is an analysis with recommendations. The project will require you to prepare an analysis of payment systems and reimbursement methods. You will compare and contrast your findings and offer subsequent recommendations. You will consider compliance and government regulations along with financial principles associated with reimbursement. You will also identify collaborative teamwork strategies that can be incorporated into various healthcare settings.
The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Seven. The final submission is due in Module Nine.
Prompt: Your analysis with recommendations should answer the following big-picture questions: What reimbursement payment methods and strategies are associated with the healthcare industry? How do financial management principles relate to reimbursement in evaluating operational performance? And, how does the revenue cycle affect various departments within the healthcare organization?
Modules 3, 5 and 7 are attached as they are part of the final project. The last part of the final project is the recommendations. Please read and follow the rubric carefully.
