Assignment 4:(20 points) Final Project- Federally Qualified Health Center Case Study (Power Point Presentation).
In the final project, students will apply the knowledge gained in this course to a case example.

You must include one or more slides that address the degree to which the Affordable Care Act might impact these services. Use APA formatting references and your reference slides. For this presentation, your title slide does not have to be in APA format.

SCENARIO OPTIONS.Pick one of the scenarios below. Your role is the manager in charge of the clinic. Restate the problem you are addressing. Make some logical assumptions. Make brief recommendations as to a reasonable solution to the problem in the scenario.
Let’s assume Mercy Free Clinic is expanding its permanent offerings to include diabetes support groups and medication therapy management (free). With HIPAA regulations and cultural sensitivity in mind, how would your “get the word out” about your new clinic services? How would you recruit patients when they are in the building for other health care services?
Linking patients with their needed medicines is very difficult. The supply of free medications, drug samples, and the process of helping patients apply for free drug programs (hosted by the pharmaceutical industry) is the challenge you must face. Explain what you would do and why this is not as much of a problem for Medicaid patients.
The patient care surveys sent out about the quality of your service came back with important feedback. The results suggest improvements are needed in the continuity of care of your patients especially when a patient goes into or out of the hospital/emergency department. What plan will you put forward (recommendations) to the provider team and/or the management team?
You have a very high number of no shows for appointments. What can you do to improve the number of patients arriving within an acceptable window of time for their appointment? Please consider the language, transportation, and health care educational needs of your patient population.
