The focus should not be limited to the level of individual performance. While doing the analysis, it should progress from special causes then to clinical processes and will conclude in common causes. The analysis should be within the organizations processes and systems, and can assist in identifying improvements that should be put into place to prevent such an event from happening again. If the root analysis shows that the occurrence was unpreventable and there are no such measures to be improved to avoid the event from reoccurring. The root analysis is to help assist in the process of developing a plan of strategies to help reduce the risk of it happening again.” (Joint Commission ,2010) A suitable plan should address responsibility of the implementation of action which would also include testing of the plan, time lines and the strategies for measuring the effectiveness” .

Continuous quality care in the healthcare setting is critical. Risk management, patient safety, and full-disclosure programs play essential roles in quality care. Preventing medical errors, acknowledging the problem, and finding ways to resolve these issues are the program’s main goals. Implementing certain regulations can help decrease future errors and claims. “A successful risk management and full-disclosure program requires well-defined policies and procedures for responding to preventable adverse events, coupled with a dedication to transparency.” (Youngberg, 2011).
Managing Service Delivery in Health and Social Care Task 1: Importance of service delivery Task 2: Importance of quality 2.1 Impact of quality on safety of patient Nurses play an important role in the quality of safety because they gave treatment to patients and their negligence may affect on the health and even can die due to their negligence. Performance of quality management involves enhancing the outcomes and reducing the risks. The quality and safety improvement permeates the health care and services provided to an individual increase institution for current profession. The effective health care targeted processes that demonstrated desired outcomes. The system is important to adopt the process of various techniques and identify the prevented techniques for the influence of changing associated system.

In addition to describing the hypothetical project selection, this paper outlines how previous evaluation studies facilitate the planning of prospective analysis on similar topics of interest. Evaluation Project Scenario two concerns the pre-implementation evaluation of a computerized provider order entry (CPOE) system for an acute care facility. The goals of this project include aligning patient care with evidence-based order sets and improving workflow by streamlining routine processes in patient care. This particular scenario aligns well with the focus of the upcoming practicum, where the author will be developing and implementing a reporting program based upon healthcare providers’ adherence to evidence-base metrics in the form of clinical reminders. Since the hypothetical evaluation project concerns the usefulness and ease of use of a CPOE application to improve healthcare practice, insights into the use and effectiveness of the clinical reminders application can be obtained, thereby allowing the author to develop an appropriate framework for the design of the proposed reporting program.
