After reading “The Outcome Model of Quality (Links to an external site.),” complete the following discussion board. The Donabedian Theory of quality improvement is considered the foundation of categories of medical quality measures and their relationship continues to influence health care improvement. The use of quality measures requires managers to view health services organizations in a systems context. The textbook examines four system models and their lessons and usefulness to health care managers. They are:
Interconnected Systems Model
Three Core Process Model
Baldridge Performance Excellence Program Model
Socioecological Framework Model
Based upon the first letter of your last name, identify the two measures that are used to evaluate performance in your setting. For example, if your last name was Smith, then your initial post would be on “C” and “D,” the Baldridge and Socioecological measures.
Last Name (A – L) = Models A (Interconnected Systems) and B (Three Core Process)
Last Name (M – Z) = Models C (Baldridge Performance) and D (Socioecological Framework)
In your initial post, describe/define and contrast the two models assigned, based upon the first letter of your last name.
For your two follow up posts, respond to two different models (by defining/describing)and explain how your models are different.
In your initial and 2 follow up post responses, based upon your current or future position in a healthcare agency, give an example of an applicable model and explain why.
