According to Marr (2014), key performance indicators (KPIs) should be the most important measure used by companies, business units, or project teams to track their progress against strategic goals. The starting point for choosing which KPIs to use are based on the decision of the board, what is going on in the industry, and what is relevant to the company (Guide, n.d.). Also, the KPIs should communicate the accomplishment of key goals (Reh, 2018). There can be lagging and leading indicators (Reh, 2018). Lagging measure past performance and leading is about the future (Reh, 2018). Selecting the right KPIs will be the focus of this discussion question.
This discussion requires you to develop key performance indicators to improve the performance of a healthcare organization and compare key performance indicators categories utilized by healthcare organizations.
Big Twig Regional Hospital is a full-service, for-profit acute care center with 375 beds. It is located in Forrest Springs, OK. The bulk of the facilities are devoted to inpatient and ER services. However, there is a large outpatient clinic for which you have just taken over as manager. Upon assuming your new role, you noticed some areas of deficiencies: there is a decrease in revenue from year to year; patient and staff complaints have increased; there was negative mention of the clinic in the local paper; expenses have increased over the last 3 quarters; employee turnover is high; there is a backlog of appointments to be scheduled; and the facility, to include the technology and equipment, is outdated. Your boss is expecting you to turn things around within the next 90 days.
Initial Post: Respond to the following using a table that you can present to your supervisor.
Use the four categories: revenue improvement, cost reduction, process cycle-time improvement, and increased customer satisfaction to develop two to three performance indicators for each category.
Be sure to indicate the specific measurement to attain for each indicator.
Also discuss some tasks that will be employed to achieve the goals.
The initial posting should be prepared as a Microsoft™ Word document, and then attached to the unit discussion thread. There is no minimum or maximum in terms of the word count; however, the response should explicitly address all required components of this discussion assignment. The document should be prepared as a practical business deliverable (single-spaced) and reflect higher-level cognitive processing (analysis, synthesis, and evaluation).
Support the initial posting with at least 3 references of credible or peer-reviewed sources. The in-text citations and the list of references should be consistent with the APA writing style (7th ed.). To earn the maximum number of points for the initial posting, the overall quality of the writing should be consistent with that expected of a college student and industry professional.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
