Analyze a problem by defending both options.

This is the third assignment in the Virtual Capstone Project. The project began by using one virtual community, the AHIMA Engage community, to explore and stimulate ideas and solutions by accessing community members and resources. The assignment challenged you to identify and use proper communication tone and content. Next, you completed the decision matrix tool and understand that the systematic evaluation of the selected criteria results in a physician office coding outsource as the best business decision. As you prepare to meet with the CFO, you reflect on how that business decision will dramatically and irreversibly impact the lives of your physician coders.

This assignment contains three parts in one written paper:

  • Part 1: Appraise the Ethical Dilemma
  • Part 2: Describe Both Sides of the Controversy
  • Part 3: Choose an Action

To begin this assignment, first read the scenario below and then perform the steps in the three parts that follow.


You report to the CFO office and bring the Decision Matrix with you. The CFO is impressed with the decision matrix business tool and reviews it in detail. The following details are discussed during your meeting:

  • LiveWell is small, local hospital that is the single largest employer in the county.
  • You feel that the marketing director has not given proper consideration to an outsource of staff and believe the public relations impact will be very negative for LiveWell.
  • The physician office coders are very much dependent on their coding positions at LiveWell. You share that one physician office coder is 4 months pregnant and that 2 coders provide healthcare insurance for their entire family. One coder has a disabled child at home.
  • You confess to the CFO that you have drafted a plan for quality improvement (QI) for the physician coders as an alternate solution. Both you and Alyza are committed to rectifying the poor quality performance and correcting the physician income problem identified by Dr. Crowe. Your QI plan impacts any coder who is performing below the 92% required quality standard. The QI plan steps are detailed in the table below.

Quality Improvement Plan Step

Responsible Party

  1. Set up meeting with impacted coders and review the Quality Standard findings.

You, the Director and Alyza

  1. Notify Coders that they must enter a mandatory retraining program to meet the quality standard of 92%.

You, the Director

  1. Notify Coders that retraining will only occur in the office; no remote work is allowed.

You, the Director

  1. Retraining will be completed over a 90 day period.


  1. Coding accuracy will be re-measured at the end of the retraining period


  1. Disciplinary action to follow for coders who have not met 92% quality standard.
    1. LiveWell Disciplinary Action Policy will be followed.
    2. Re-measurement of quality standard will occur in 30 day increments.
    3. Additional disciplinary action will occur for coders not meeting the 92% standard up to and including dismissal from employment at LiveWell.
    4. Coders who meet 92% quality standard will move on to step #7.

You, the Director

  1. Coders who meet the 92% quality standard will stay in the office for 30 additional days.
    1. Another re-measurement will occur to ensure maintenance of the required 92% quality standard.
    2. Coders who maintain the 92% standard will return to remote coding locations.

You, the Director and Alyza

  1. Future annual performance reviews will include a completed quality measurement for all employed coders to ensure continuing maintenance of the 92% quality standard.

You, the Director and Alyza

The CFO thanks you for your input and for the pro-active Quality Improvement Plan. He asks you to leave your QI plan as well as the Decision Matrix with him and the meeting wraps up.

ONE WEEK LATER: You are summoned to the CFO’s office. You arrive at his office and see that the CEO, Laramie Trudoux, and Suzanne, the HR Director, are both in attendance, along with the CFO. Ms. Trudoux welcomes you and asks you to take a seat. She then indicates that MHP has been contracted for all coding at LiveWell – Physician Coding, Inpatient Coding, Outpatient Coding and ER Coding. MHP will also manage the coding services under your direction. All 25 coders and Alyza, the coding manager, will be notified that their jobs have been discontinued and will cease employment in 60 days (2 months from today).

The HIM staff will decrease from its current level of 52 to 26 persons in two months but the CFO explains the MHP guarantees a 94% quality coding standard and will complete the entire coding volume for $237,000 less annually. (This expense savings considers salary and full benefits for all 26 staff members.)

As the Director of HIM, you are faced with an ethical dilemma. Your position of Director places you in an upper level management position of a small, local hospital and you are a representative of the hospital. The upper level management team is responsible for the long term goals of the facility and for meeting the goals of the facility. LiveWell hospital and partner physician offices employ over 1000 people in the community, and all employees depend on the future of the healthcare business.

Completing the Assignment

You will complete the three parts of this assignment in a 2-3 page paper, labeling each of the three parts and using at least two resources. One of your resources must be a published professional code of ethics, such as the AHIMA Code of Ethics. Please use citations in your submission to support your original content.

Following is some suggested reading to help prepare you for this assignment:

Part 1: Appraise the Ethical Dilemma

  1. Appraise the ethical dilemma described above and consider the choice made by the CEO to outsource the entire coding team of 26 persons. Articulate and explain how the CEO’s decision would affect both the company’s and the community’s best interests.

Part 2: Describe Both Sides of the Controversy

  1. Summarize the origin of the physician income complaint which led to the consideration of these two business options (Full Coding Outsource and Director’s QI Plan).
  2. Detail the business decision options and their competing perspectives.
    • Include financial, staffing and ethical perspectives at a minimum.
  3. Analyze the problem by defending both options. While not required, a multi-columned table would work well here. For example:

Business Option

Defend the Option

Full Coding Outsource


Roll out the Director’s QI Plan

Part 3: Choose an Action

  1. In a 1-2 paragraph summary, state your choice of action if you were the Director of HIM and were asked to roll out the CFO’s decision to outsource all coders and the coding supervisor positions.
    • Would you act and roll out the decision – notify all 26 staff that their jobs are ending in 60 days and work through the dissolution of their jobs? Would you refuse and offer your resignation? What other courses of action might be available to you? What would your chosen course of action be in this professional job and in this professional scenario, and why?
    • Be sure to indicate how your personal and professional ethics influence your choice of action.

Analyzes the mission statement of an organization.

Part 2: Composition 

Nimble Storage has an objective of expanding globally and thus the entire firm ought to be prepared for that move. The firm ought to have a good coordination of the marketing, financial and human resources when setting up business in the new nations. It is important to understand that each market in the different nations has unique needs, varying competition levels, expectations as well as price ranges. Hence, the organizational culture in the firm will affect the company’s performance internationally. Organizational culture is simply the traditions shared by the workers in the firm as well as the social rules which govern interactions within the firm. The most common forms of organizational culture in firms include formal and informal culture. The formal culture involves the expectations that the firm management has regarding the business. On the other hand, informal culture involves the manner in which individuals in the organization behave and conduct themselves while interacting with each other (Nikpour, 2017). In the Nimble Storage firm, the human resource department will be required to develop strategies of adapting into the new global position and ensuring that all the complaints of the different types of labor force are attended to. In the context of expanding the business to other nations, the firm should be ready to interact and conduct business in different culture where individuals have their own principles and personal values that they follow.

Business practice analysis

The current HR strategies applied in the firm ensures that the organization is able to obtain the needed talent as well as retain them through a series of adopted measures. Having a large labor force, the management must ensure that the practices which are adopted are effective and efficient in maintaining the huge number of workers. Nimble storage has ensured that its organizational culture is simplified and memorable to employees to increase their capability to determine what is expected of them and motivate them to behave in the expected manner. Over the years, the organization has kept changing its strategies to ensure that it suits the expected demands from the labor forces.

Processes such as onboarding has helped in ensuring that the hired workers know exactly how to conduct themselves in the firm. They allow the newbies to be familiar with their working environment and to have adequate time to ask all the questions they might have pertaining their job positions. In addition, the procedure ensures that the workers can easily transition to the new environment without difficulties which might slow down the performance of the firm (Pawirosumarto et al., 2017). It ensures that the employees’ turnover rate is reduced, and the overall productivity of the firm is increased. However, the organization might spend a lot of time and financial resources conducting onboarding activities to huge crowds of workers who are hired every year. Therefore, as much as this business practice is beneficial to the firm, it is adding some expenses which have been avoided by skipping the procedure. Meeting the minimum wage requirement ensures that the company can abide by the laws of the different countries it operates in and ensures that it is spared form political influences.

Moreover, allowing workers to develop their career and giving them the compensation that suits their respective job positions ensures that the employees feel appreciated by the organization. Job satisfaction has been said to be brought by compensating workers the amount worth their efforts and ensuring that they feel appreciated and valued by the firm. Nimble storage ensures their workers can rely on it to develop their careers as well as have high payments which many desires. Therefore, this increases their retention capability and ensures that they continually improve their performance in their job positions. Therefore, the firm has a huge base of talent which can be useful in keeping up with the technological advancements which the firm needs to implement (Brannen et al., 2017). Advancement of technology is useful in ensuring that the firm innovates the latest storage gadgets which can sell at a reasonably high price than other products in the market. It allows the firm to be spared of the price battle which might exist if the firm would be using conventional technology. The innovativeness of the firm allows it to thrive in the business world regardless of the economic situation, it can capture more consumers than its many competitors.


The firm should improve its HR practices by implementing HR software that will allow the firm to easily monitor their workers and be able to operate smoothly while collaborating with other managers in different countries where the firm operates. The firm should encourage more creativity among its workers to ensure that it can innovate more products and be able to diversify their business as a competitive strategy. Coordination of the global working areas of the firm should necessitate the firm to employ virtual meetings rather than travelling form one country to the other. The managers will find this method convenient to them and will ensure that there is uniformity in the way the firm is run from different countries.

Explain the relationship between measurement reliability and measurement validity

Specific methods of data collection (e.g., surveys, interviews, observations) produce specific types of data that will answer particular research questions, but not others; so here too, as covered in previous weeks, the research questions inform how the data will be obtained.  Furthermore, the method used to collect the data may impact the reliability and the validity of that data.

For this Discussion, you will first consider sampling strategies. Then, you will turn your attention to data collection methods, including their strengths, limitations, and ethical implications. Last, you will consider measurement reliability and validity in the context of your discipline.

Position B: Nonprobability (or purposive) sampling represents the best strategy for selecting research participants.

By Day 4

Post a restatement of your assigned position on sampling strategies. Explain why this position is the best strategy for selecting research participants. Support your explanation with an example and support from the scholarly literature. Next, select a data collection method (e.g., surveys, interviews, observations) and briefly explain at least one strength and at least one limitation. Then, identify a potential ethical issue with this method and describe a strategy to address it. Last, explain the relationship between measurement reliability and measurement validity using an example from your discipline.

It is important to note that IT is not just susceptible to man-made threats but also natural hazards and disasters. Organizations need to be prepared.

You have been asked by the IT Manager of the small company you work for to create a Disaster Recovery Plan template that will be used when disasters occur.

Create a Disaster Recovery Plan template for your company using the “Disaster Recovery Plan Outline” in the “Simple Disaster Recovery Plan” section in Ch. 10, “Planning for Contingencies,” of Management of Information Security as an example. Include a 1-page summary that covers what options should be used to prevent data loss or restore corrupted data. Also, identify the prominent security standards, organizations, and relevant certification that will be needed.

A few months later it is tornado season, and your manager has asked you to fill out a Disaster Recovery Plan for the company.

Use the Disaster Recovery Plan template to assess the information technology infrastructure of your organization and identify the procedures needed in the event a tornado actually causes damage to the organization.
