The Triple Aim, HIM, and Health Care Reform

The Triple Aim, HIM, and Health Care Reform

Create a 12-15-slide PowerPoint presentation (20 minutes with 10 minutes Q & A) on the Triple Aim model, HIM, and health care reform for an audience that constitutes the general public. Include voice-over narration and speaker notes with slides.

Introduction

Health care is an ever-changing field. One of the driving forces of change in health care is government policies and procedures, such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and the Triple Aim model.These forces are attempting to improve the quality of patient care and the population’s health. They are also trying to reduce health care costs.

For the purpose of this assessment, assume you are an active member in your regional health information management (HIM) association. Your association has agreed to present a series of health care lectures at a local community center. As the vice-president of the association, you have been asked to present on health care reform. The community center has asked you to specifically focus on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Triple Aim. The association would also like you to explain how the HIM field relates to these topics.

Demonstration of Proficiency

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:

  • Competency 2: Identify market forces that affect health care systems.
    • Explain the Triple Aim model’s goals.
    • Identify HIM’s role in the Triple Aim.
    • Identify ways the Affordable Care Act supports and hinders the Triple Aim’s goals.
  • Competency 4: Communicate in a professional manner.
    • Follow APA style and formatting guidelines for citations and references.
    • Create a clear, well organized, compelling presentation that is generally free from errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

Preparation

This assessment requires you to provide a slide presentation of 12 to 15 slides that explains how the Affordable Care Act supports and hinders the Triple Aim model. The audience for your presentation is the general public, not health care experts, so be sure to target your message appropriately.

To be able to present your analysis, you may want to conduct independent research into the Affordable Care Act’s and the Triple Aim’s basic tenets in addition to consulting this assessment’s suggested resources. Consult the Health Care Administration Undergraduate Research Guide for help in beginning your research and identifying credible sources.

As part of the assessment, you will also be required to provide narration along with your slide presentation. To prepare for the audio recording of your presentation:

  • Set up and test your microphone or headset using the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer.You only need to use the headset if your audio is not clear and high quality when captured by the microphone.
  • Practice using the equipment to ensure the audio quality is sufficient.
  • Microsoft PowerPoint allows you to record your narration with your slides. If you choose to record your presentation using this tool, simply submit your presentation to the appropriate area of the courseroom. Your narration will be included with your slides.
  • Consult the Using Kaltura [PDF] for guidance in how to record your presentation and upload it in the courseroom if you select not to use Microsoft PowerPoint to submit your slides and narration.

Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact DisabilityServices@Capella.edu to request accommodations.
