week discussion 14

Your faculty (the hospital you work for Board of Directors’ representative) is interested in developing a cardiac care unit. The Board believes offering specialized care for patient’s with cardiac diseases will meet an unmet need in the community but want to be sure they are making the right decision. You are directed to identify the current and future need for cardiac services based on the community population characteristics and current use of cardiac services at your hospital. Please prepare an email outlining your thoughts on how you would accomplish the task. HINT: to accomplish this activity, pick a zip code and base your outline on the real-life population descriptors in that zip code. Assume there is no other cardiac unit in the area available. Consider the social determinants of health, epidemiological measures and population assessment process. All necessary concepts to accomplish this task successfully are presented in week 1-4. Use the following information to help you develop a business email.
