Overview
Create a 5–6-page cost benefit analysis that supports a risk financing recommendation
for a selected organization.
Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other, so you are strongly
encouraged to complete them in a sequence.
In your current and future role as a health care leader, you can expect to conduct a costbenefit analysis (CBA) to determine whether the positive benefits of a proposed
recommendation outweigh the negative costs.
By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the
following course competencies and assessment criteria:




Competency 1: Conduct an environmental assessment to identify quality- and riskmanagement priorities for a health care organization.
• Specify the focus and stakeholders for a cost-benefit analysis.
• Develop a value proposition for change management that incorporates qualityand risk-management concepts.
• Describe strategies to influence and impact the needed changes for quality
improvement.
Competency 2: Apply a risk-management model or framework to a specific riskmanagement priority.
• Conduct a cost-benefit analysis for a risk-management intervention.
Competency 3: Analyze the process and outcomes of a care quality- or risk-management
issue.
• Identify relevant internal and external benchmarks, using a systems-based
perspective.
Competency 5: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent
with expectations for professionals in health care administration.
• Use correct grammar, punctuation, and mechanics as expected of a graduate
learner.
Content
In your current and future role as a health care leader, you can expect to conduct a CBA.
You may be asked to offer three alternatives and to make a recommendation.
Plowman relates that “a cost benefit analysis is used to evaluate the total anticipated
cost of a project compared to the total expected benefits in order to determine whether
the proposed implementation is worthwhile for a company or project team.” Plowman
also identified the three parts of a CBA to be the following:

Identification of potential costs.
• Recording of all anticipated benefits.
• Examination of the differences to determine if positive benefits outweigh
negative costs.
A pre-formatted Excel spreadsheet that can be used as a template for CBAs is a good
tool to have in your personal toolbox. Inputting data is simply the first step. As you fill
out templates, always consider the numbers within the context of an organizational
mission, strategic direction, patient safety, risk-management issues, regulatory
requirements, patient and stakeholder satisfaction, and also the dynamics within the
health care industry.

Questions to Consider
As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related
issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to
consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate,
an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these
questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be
completed or submitted as a part of your assessment.




What steps do you need to take in order to align a CBA with an organization’s
mission and strategy?
If you were to offer three alternative recommendations after a CBA, what types
of elements would you consider to differentiate them from one another?
How would you substantiate a recommendation for reducing financial risks in a
health care setting when the quality of care is involved?
What are the three parts of a CBA?

Assignment Instruction
Note: This assessment should be completed third.
Preparation
Scenario
Suppose an issue has emerged in your organization that presents significant risks to the
stakeholders involved. Your supervisor has asked you to conduct a CBA, make a
recommendation, and present it to the board of directors. You are expected to consider
the numbers within the context of the organizational mission, strategic direction,
patient safety, risk-management issues, regulatory requirements, patient and
stakeholder satisfaction, and the dynamics within the health care industry.
Select a relevant issue within your workplace (or one from the Suggested Resources) for
which a CBA may be conducted. The CBA should include one of the following courserelated topics:






Quality.
Patient safety.
Risk management.
Regulatory standards.
Compliance.
Patient and stakeholder satisfaction.
Instructions
Step One: Identify Costs
Apply the process from Writing a Cost-Benefit Analysis article (from the Required
Resources) to identify costs:
1. Make a list of all monetary costs that will be incurred upon implementation and
throughout the life of the project. These include start-up fees, licenses, production
materials, payroll expenses, user acceptance processes, training, and travel expenses,
among others.
2. Make a list of all non-monetary costs that are likely to be absorbed. These include time,
low production of other tasks, imperfect processes, potential risks, market saturation or
penetration uncertainties, and influences on one’s reputation.
3. Assign monetary values to the costs identified in steps one and two. To ensure equality
across time, monetary values are stated in present value terms. If realistic cost values
cannot be readily evaluated, consult with market trends and industry surveys for
comparable implementation costs in similar businesses.
4. Add all anticipated costs together to get a total costs value (Plowman, 2014).
Step Two: Identify Benefits
Continuing with the CBA, proceed with the identification and quantification of benefits,
per Writing a Cost-Benefit Analysis article.
1. Make a list of all monetary benefits that will be experienced upon implementation and
thereafter. These benefits include direct profits from products or services, increased
contributions from investors, decreased production costs due to improved and
standardized processes, and increased production capabilities, among others.
2. Make a list of all non-monetary benefits that one is likely to experience. These include
decreased production times, increased reliability and durability, greater customer base,
greater market saturation, greater customer satisfaction, and improved company or
project reputation, among others.
3. Assign monetary values to the benefits identified in steps one and two. Be sure to state
these monetary values in present value terms as well.
4. Add all anticipated benefits together to get a total benefits value (Plowman, 2014).
Cost-Benefit Analysis
Enter the cost and benefit data you developed for the CBA in your preparation steps
into the Cost-Benefit Analysis Template, linked in the Required Resources.
Then, write an analysis in which you do the following:






Describe the organizational, program, or departmental issue for which you have created
the CBA.
Evaluate the cost versus benefit according to the general guidelines outlined by
Plowman’s 2014 article, which you read in the preparation for this assessment.
Make a recommendation as to whether the benefits are sufficient to outweigh the costs
of the proceeding.
Describe the systems-based context for your recommendations, integrating the CBA
within the organization as a whole.
Describe how the issue relates to the organization’s vision, mission, and strategic
direction.
Provide a rationale that explains how your recommendations are appropriate for your
organization’s capacity and strategy.
Your analysis should use proper APA style and formatting and include the following
sections. Each section, except the title page, should include the appropriate section
heading.
1. Title page: Use APA formatting and include the following:





Assessment number (Assessment 3).
Your name.
The date.
The course number (MHA-FP5014).
Your instructor’s name.
2. Abstract: Include a one-paragraph summary of analysis content. This is not an
introduction to the topic, but a summary of the entire analysis. Make sure to doublespace.
3. Issue description.
4. CBA evaluation.
5. CBA recommendations.
6. Context for recommendations.
7. Relationship to vision, mission, and strategy.
8. Rationale.
9. Conclusion.
10. References.
11. Appendix: Attach your completed Cost-Benefit Analysis Template.
Additional Requirements




Written communication: Written communication should be free from errors that detract
from the overall message.
Length of paper: 5–6 typed, double-spaced pages.
Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.
Appendix: Include your Cost-Benefit Analysis Template as an appendix to your analysis.
