IPE 7133 - Strategic Planning in Healthcare Administration

Hours: 3
Through this course, students gain an understanding of the importance and process of formulating, implementing, and evaluating a strategic plan while working with an interprofessional team. Students will examine the role of strategic planning in achieving organizational performance as well as the notion of planning as a cyclical process within the healthcare organization. Students also explore key concepts in strategic planning, including team building, identifying the relationship of the plan to the organization’s mission, values, and vision; assessing the competition; identifying external influences and resources; forecasting trends in organizational performance; setting goals; selecting strategies; implementing marketing actions; identifying implications of the strategic plan on organizational finances and human resources; and evaluating the plan’s progress. Students will apply course concepts, including strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis, as they research and develop components of a strategic plan for a specific healthcare organization as the member of a multidisciplinary team.
