Organizational leaders in healthcare focus on and develop innovative initiatives to achieve value-based care. Interdisciplinary teams assess organizational readiness and develop strategies for organizations to implement value-based care. In this task, you will demonstrate how an organizational leader might present these initiatives and strategies to key stakeholders.


You are an executive nurse leader in your organization tasked with developing a strategic action plan to implement value-based care.

You recently completed a clinical practice experience (CPE) that required you to fill out a “Value-Based Nursing Care Readiness Assessment” evaluating your organization’s current efforts to establish value-based care. As part of that CPE, you also identified strategies to implement value-based care.

Relying on your experiences and the knowledge you gained during your CPE, you will develop a multimedia presentation to inform key stakeholders of an action plan to achieve excellence through value-based patient care and to optimize reimbursement.


Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. The originality report that is provided when you submit your task can be used as a guide.
