    To develop the content for your presentation, record detailed notes as you complete the following steps:
    •Review the information about the continuum and coordination of health services presented in the Learning Resources, including the HIMSS resource, Continuum of Care, and the tables in Chapter 1 of the course text.
    •Develop a brief description of a hypothetical adult patient who has a serious health problem or injury. Imagine this patient lives in your local area. If you are an international student, you may choose a geographic area in the United States or use your own location.
    •Use the pertinent information in Chapters 7, 8, 9, and/or 10 of the Shi & Singh textbook and conduct additional research of your own to analyze specific services your hypothetical patient might need, beginning with the onset or diagnosis of an illness or injury and concluding with an end-point of your choosing (i.e., recovery, symptom management, end of life). Also research the types of organizations that provide those services.
    •Investigate the health care organizations in your local area. Based on the services your hypothetical patient needs, select four or five actual settings in which he/she would receive care.
    •Next, gather information related to the types of insurance from which each organization accepts payment. Typically, this would include Medicare, Medicaid, and various types of insurance programs. What challenges do you anticipate your patient may have related to payment for services?
    •Review the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (2014) resource and consider what it means for health care to be safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable. Analyze how the scenario you have created—with your hypothetical patient receiving services from actual settings in your geographic area—illustrates positive or negative attributes related to two or more of the six Institute of Medicine aims.
    •Next, prepare to create your presentation using PowerPoint. Examine the Presentation Guidelines and Tips and the Week 3 Assignment Template, both found in this week's Learning Resources.

    The Assignment

    Download and save the Week 3 Assignment Template, found in this week's Learning Resources. Use the template to create a succinct and engaging PowerPoint presentation. Include the following:
    •Title slide
    •Introduction slide
    •7-9 slides* in which you: ◦Introduce the patient, health problem/injury, and geographic area.
    ◦Describe the continuum of care, including specific services from four or five actual settings in your local area.
    ◦Describe a potential challenge related to payment for services this patient may encounter.
    ◦Explain how this example illustrates positive or negative attributes related to two or more of the six Institute of Medicine (IOM) aims.

    •Sources slide* ◦List all resources (a minimum of 4) used to develop your presentation.

    First and foremost, I am using an actual example for this summary, and I have intimate knowledge associated with the adult patient in this real scenario. The patient is an 82 year old who has been diagnosed with esophageal stage 4 cancer. This cancer occurs within a patient's esophagus, which is the tube responsible for running solids and liquids from the patient's throat to their stomach. This cancer typically starts within cells that are located inside the lining of the patient's esophagus, but it can occur anywhere within the patient's esophagus. The patient suffers from cancer in the lower portion of his esophagus, and he has the most serious form of the cancer, which is stage 4.

    •Use the pertinent information in Chapters 7, 8, 9, and/or 10 of the Shi & Singh textbook and conduct additional research of your own to analyze specific services your hypothetical patient might need, beginning with the onset or diagnosis of an illness or injury and concluding with an end-point of your choosing (i.e., recovery, symptom management, end of life). Also research the types of organizations that provide those services.

    In reference the onset of this disease, the patient began struggling to eat food as he was having extreme difficulty swallowing, which is known as (dysphagia). When he began ...
