Good afternoon, Dr. Schwandt and classmates. I am very behind but planning to catch up as best I can. I work in healthcare administration and my world has been completely taken over by Covid-19. As such, school has sadly been put on the back burner. I had planned to strive for the highest grade possible in this course. Now I have a new goal – to contribute by creating some content that will give all of you real-life examples of the topics covered in this course as I’m experiencing them during this unprecedented time.
For Module 2, I completed the following two blogs and one map during these past few weeks. Combined they cover all of the required questions and topics.
Module 2, Blog #1:
What is the Purpose of Healthcare Administration During a Pandemic?
Module 2, Blog #2:
The Function of Teams in Healthcare During a Pandemic
Ten Steps to Systems Thinking
For this map I used the example of the drive-through lab we developed for patients to get the lab work they need without having to go inside the hospital.
I hope you find these examples and stories interesting and helpful as we learn about healthcare administration together. I will have more assignments complete soon. Have a good weekend!
