Conducting an Environmental Analysis

For all assignments assume that you are the administrator of a fictitious organization of your choice.  The organization can be any type of health care organization such as a hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation center, clinic, etc. As the administrator, you are faced with the challenges of declining reimbursements from insurance providers and increasing demands for patient services due to dramatic changes in the external environment. Such changes include those imposed by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Your first step in evaluating the position of your organization will be conducting an environmental analysis. The purpose of this is to determine your organization’s ability to continue to provide quality care and remain financially solvent in the face of these challenges.

  1. Determine two (2) specific forces in the external environment that will have the most impact on your organization. Provide a rationale for your decision.
  2. Determine two (2) specific internal factors that the organization’s leaders need to consider in preparing for the future of health care and the future of the organization. Provide a rationale for your decision.
  3. Discuss the impact of both the identified internal and external forces on the organization’s ability to develop a competitive strategy.
  4. Recommend one (1) strategy that involves the organization’s managers in implementing and maintaining the momentum of the strategic plan.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites to not qualify as academic resources.
