Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas:
You are the director of quality at a new managed care organization who has been tasked with training new full-time employees in the area of collecting and organizing data for an upcoming committee meeting. In preparation for this upcoming meeting, you must help the new employees identify appropriate steps in collecting, analyzing, and organizing the data.
To get started, do the following:
Define the concept of collecting data.
Identify at least 5 organizations that collect health care data.
Explain the rationale for collecting the data.
Explain the importance of organizing and evaluating data in a health care setting.
Not sure we should create an acronym in place of an acronym for FTE that already exists. FTE, in common terms, is full-time equivalent. Students should know what FTE is in that sense. Recommend re-wording to keep in line with the common language of the business world.
I agree that the FTE is full-time equivalent and we will be training employees, not equivalents.
APA format, references and citations. ABC order on references.
