Use of Methadone preoperatively to decrease post operatively pain and improve patient's post operative experience

Quadruple Aim and Business Framework Paper


Participant will identify the segment of the health care delivery system in the context of the quadruple aim they would like to impact (patient experience). Within that segment, the participant will then select an actual/potential practice project and a business plan framework (Value Chain) to address their selected project. The participant will provide an overview of the quadruple aim segment and framework with rationale (why and how it applies to the specific project). Utilizing a minimum of two research articles related to this particular framework, explain how this framework pertains to the development of their project proposal by integrating or using an example with your discussion. Utilizing the business plan framework identified, develop a business plan/analysis for your identified project.
