Research a health care organization or network that spans several states with in the United States (United Healthcare, Vanguard, Banner Health, etc.). Assess the readiness of the health care organization or network you chose in regard to meeting the health care needs of citizens in the next decade.
Prepare a 1,000-1,250 word paper that presents your assessment and proposes a strategic plan to ensure readiness. Include the following:
Describe the health care organization or network.
Describe the organization’s overall readiness based on your findings.
Prepare a strategic plan to address issues pertaining to network growth, nurse staffing, resource management, and patient satisfaction.
Identify any current or potential issues within the organizational culture and discuss how these issues may affect aspects of the strategic plan.
Propose a theory or model that could be used to support implementation of the strategic plan for this organization. Explain why this theory or model is best.
mpt level system in placed in order to maintain a procedure that is not prompt dependent (McGee et al., 1986). Incidental teaching also generalizes across different settings and people without prompt dependence. The study completed by McGee and Daly (2007) showed that the social phrases learned in their study by the three autistic boys were transferred across different periods and situations without prompts. According to McGee et al. (1999) the strong interest and favor to incidental teaching was due to the need to overcome the generalization issue that occurred in other behavioral interventions. As mentioned earlier, incidental teaching is a procedure is reinforcing because the child initiates the intervention based on their own interest, and receives the reinforce when the child attempts to follow the instructor’s prompt. Incidental teaching is also an intervention that promotes lasting and impactful results because it is an intervention that is early, it also can be done in a variety of settings with different people, it can have family involvement, the procedure can include peers, and it is fun for the child since it initiated by the child (McGee et al., 1999). Since it is child selected, it drives the child’s motivation, which ultimately assists the child to learn. Limitations Incidental teaching is a procedure that has shown a lot of progress in children, especially in vocalization. However, the teaching procedure is mainly an intervention that focuses on verbal communication and can be limiting to certain children with ASD, especially those who are severe. McGee et al. (1983) modified the standard incidental teaching for autistic children with severe language deficits shown evident progress in the subjects. However, the setting was more contrived and it was not based on the interests of the child. In addition, many studies mentioned that it is beneficial for the child to initiate, but it becomes challenging to use incidental teaching past a certain age because then the interests start to become narrower and more depleted. It is also difficult to find a “perfect” intervention for ASD because it is a spectrum disorder, so the signs and symptoms vary among children. Therefore, each child is at a different level of severity, and each level of severity needs more or less assistance. It is going to be easier for high functioning children with ASD to learn how to have verbal communication that is socially functional than it would be for lower functioning children with ASD. It is also dependent upon the parents and the services of the child that determines the success of an intervention. Some parents do not have as much time to practice instructional teaching at home, so the procedure may only be done once or twice a week with therapy appointments. For example, McGee et al. (1999) had a home-based component in their study where to parents did an addition ten hours a week of teaching with their child, so that is also a contributing factor to the children’s progress. In addition, if a child does not have therapists that are educated adequately for the procedure, then the child will not have as much progress. This procedure, like many others in the field of ASD, is very dependent on outside factors to make it successful. Overall, incidental teaching has many more benefits than limitations. It is a procedure that motivates the children and is an intervention that has a low probability of prompt dependency, which can be dangerous in interventions. The main component of incidental teaching that also makes it notable is that it has evidence to support the generalization across settings and people without prompts because those two components tend to be challenging among other interventions (McGee et al., 1999). >GET ANSWER
