Wk 6, mha 508: summative assessment: root cause analysis

Assignment Content 

Throughout this course, you have examined occurrences of the types of health care noncompliance, fraud, and abuse that commonly take place in the context of the regulatory environment in which organizations must operate. To ensure the best chance of avoiding intentional and unintentional noncompliance, health care administrators should devise and adopt a risk management plan that identifies, assesses, and analyzes the risks and tolerances inherent in the organizations processes and operations. 

One of the crucial aspects of a risk management plan involves strategies for actions that should be taken in the event of a violation or breach of any nature. These mitigating actions should be followed up with remediation aimed at finding the causes leading up to the incident. This is where root cause analysis comes into the picture. 

Root cause analysis is a structured, retrospective analysis of events leading up to the noncompliant event. By developing an organization-wide policy for conducting root cause analyses that is adaptable to specific operations, a cause might be determined, and preventive actions and solutions developed. 

In this assessment, you examine a case of fraud and try to determine why and how it happened.
