Performance Based Factors and Measures for Quality Assessment
Write a 700- to 1,000-word paper about the Performance Based Factors and Measures for Quality Assessment. Include the following in your paper:
For any health care activity, three performance factors can be measured: structure, process, and outcome. Identify one structure measure, one process measure, and one outcome measure that could be used to evaluate the following hospital admission process:
Upon arrival, the patient reports to the hospital registration or admitting area. The patient completes paperwork and provides an insurance identification card, if insured. Often, patients register before the date of hospital admission to facilitate the registration process. An identification bracelet including the patientâ€™s name and doctorâ€™s name is placed around the patientâ€™s wrist. Before any procedure is performed or any form of medical care is provided, the patient is asked to sign a consent form. If the patient is not feeling well, a family member or caregiver can help the patient complete the admission process.
Include a minimum of three peer-reviewed references, not including the textbook.
Format your paper consistent with APA 6th guidelines.
