  Using the feasibility study outlined in the Daniels and Dickson (1990) article as a model, and including a minimum of six other scholarly sources,  create a 12- to 15-page feasibility study that includes the following headings and supporting information:  

Evaluating Feasibility The concept of a feasibility study is central to viability, the “worth to the effort” ratio, and return on investment (ROI). What needs to be taken into consideration to create a feasibility study (e.g., human resources, community needs, and technological advances, federal and state regulatory issues)?  Within this section, you will research and design an economical health care service that is responsive to a given market. This research stems from understanding your target population and present need in health services. Furthermore, as you have seen from the Daniels and Dickson (1990) article, you must appraise your human resources, capital investment, and how your effort will yield a return on investment from a facilities perspective as well as the tangible greater good of providing healthcare to a community.   

Strategic Effect Analyze the role of public policy with regard to your project. What policies and processes should be in place to create an effective program? How will you measure the effectiveness of your program and your provision of health care services? Develop a microeconomic model that is responsive to the specific health care service demands of your target population. For example, the current trend of the medical home model, which allows for the coordination of care, allows for better communication among service providers as well as convenience for patients. Is the population a market priority? How does your program serve a need for your target population?  

Market Analysis Within this section you will identify the population demographics, who your competitors are, and whether or not a real need for the services you are proposing exists in the community. As you examine the demographic and population needs using Census data and other reliable sources, you must also consider what competitors, if any, exist in the present climate. This requires an evaluation of the present socioeconomic and cultural trends influencing how people make decisions in health care. In addition, in this analysis you will need to compare and contrast economic challenges and incentives among health care’s organization models. This comparison requires an understanding of past challenges and incentives that other organizations have implemented.  

Financial Analysis This section includes the revenue, expenses, and net income. Compare and contrast economic challenges and incentives by finding and describing multiple sources of public and private funding (e.g., grants, donations, awards, special projects) for this project. Include a reference list for your funding sources that is formatted in APA as outlined in the Writing Center. Next, identify the funding constraints for each source. Include limitations of monies awarded, timing issues, fitting the needs of the funding sources, difficulties of connecting with private funders, etc. Finally, specify the internal ramifications of moving forward using SWOT analysis. What are the fixed and variable costs associated with your project? What are the annual maintenance and operation costs? Elaborate on how you arrived at your sensitivity analysis conclusions.  

Operations Performance This section examines the incremental effect of how your proposed service will impact all aspects of health services. This portion of the study explores how the statistical data you have researched affects the proposed service in terms of efficiency and value. This can be difficult to measure initially. However, through incremental and ongoing evaluation of operations, you can begin to see what constitutes the best performance in this instance and how it serves the target population. In this section, you will further illustrate the incentives and challenges faced by a health organization and communicate the relevance of economics within the U.S. health care system as it pertains to your proposed services.  

Inpatient If your proposed study has an inpatient component, this section will analyze on volume of patients, types of payers, and how utilization rates impact your proposed study. In addition, you will further explain how your new inpatient service will add value for patients and improve the financial viability of the institution. This section will require you to use both qualitative and quantitative data to justify the plan.  Hospitals operate in terms of how many beds are occupied relative to how many are empty. Most CEOs want to see that a unit is running at near full capacity and that volume is increasing year to year. Analyze how your proposal will meet these demands by explaining the data you have collected and predicting potential financial outcomes. Finally, evaluate and explain how value-based care will impact your ability to maintain margins within this newly proposed service.  

Outpatient If your proposed study has an outpatient component, examine how admissions, revenue, and workflow of staff will improve the efficiency of your proposed service. Analyze how your outpatient service will add value for patients and improve the financial viability of the institution. Justify your plan with appropriate data. As stated in the inpatient section, the content here applies much the same way. However, the caveat for outpatient services lies in the ambulatory setting. This aspect should be most interesting under conditions created by the Affordable Care Act. The new paradigm shift will be toward more preventative, primary, and outpatient care settings to reduce the numbers of patients being admitted to hospitals. Please explain how your proposal takes these conditions into consideration. In this section, you will further compare and contrast economic challenges and incentives among health care’s organization models in an outpatient setting. You will also further augment your design in an economic framework that is responsive to your market.  

Outlook This section examines future implications of your proposed services and how they will impact the future health outcomes of the community and financial health of the services being provided. Analyze economic theories that are germane to the provision of your proposed health services. What adjustments might you need to make in terms of what the “unintended consequences” may be? For example, Baylor Hospital in Houston proposed and spent 250 million to create a brand new hospital that currently stands empty because it was built during the U.S. economic downturn, the loan was no longer able to finance the construction, and the initial examination of its necessity did not play out as expected. Provide conclusions and implications of how your feasibility study fits within the larger context of the system of services currently being provided. How do they work with one another within the larger health care system?  

Finally, evaluate how your study will respond to market and design models that impact the community based on current regulatory and market needs.   

Final Paper- Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Screening Writing the Feasibility Study Concept Paper The Paper:

· Must be a minimum of 12 to 15 double-spaced pages in length, excluding title and reference pages, and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Writing Center.

· Must include a title page with the following:

· Title of paper

· Student’s name

· Course name and number

· Instructor’s name

· Date submitted

· Must begin with an introductory paragraph that has a succinct thesis statement.

· Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought.

· Must include the listed headings in the Week Six feasibility study instructions with the content required under each.

· Must end with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis.

· Must list at least six scholarly sources that were published within the last five years

Building on the work you completed in Weeks Two and Four, you will complete a feasibility study based on a pre-approved health care project of your choice. Using the feasibility study outlined in the Daniels and Dickson (1990) article as a model, and including a minimum of six other scholarly sources,  create a 12- to 15-page feasibility study that includes the following headings and supporting information: Evaluating Feasibility The concept of a feasibility study is central to viability, the “worth to the effort” ratio, and return on investment (ROI).

BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS AND SCREENING PROJECT  2

General Information

Cancer diagnosis and screening procedures are critical in reducing the mortality 

associated with cancer in geriatric clinics. The deployment of Mammography technology for 

early breast cancer diagnosis and screening requires massive resource mobilization and other 

aspects to be put in place to achieve the objective. Many health care institutions are not capable 

of providing these essential services because of the technicalities and resource demands 

associated with the project.  This paper evaluates the feasibility of the project in a geriatric clinic.

Cancer diagnosis and screening may reduce associated mortality rates by 70% and improve the 

population’s health status. The project is therefore important in fighting cancer and improving 

patients’ quality of life. However, the project requires extensive managerial commitment in 

terms of resources, and working relations to expedite it. Moreover, the needs of the community 

will need to be looked into, while aligning the projects within federal and state regulatory 

frameworks. 

Time & Resource cost

The project implementation is set to be completed in five years. The project, therefore, 

requires $320,840 to complete. This involves the acquisition of the facility, equipping it, hiring 

and developing health care staff, and overhead running costs for one year. The first­year balance 

sheet indicates that the revenue is estimated at $269,320. This is a net loss of $51,520, which the 

Neptune Geriatric Community Clinic implementing the project is likely to subsidize. Subsequent

years will see the revenue increase while reducing the overall cost of obtaining these services for 

women in this community (De Mil et al., 2019).

Strength 

The clinic has a vast operational experience in health care services. It has implemented a 

vast number of advanced technologies including MRI, and TC scan, and now is investing in 

Mobile Mammography Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Screening. Advanced technologies have 

significantly reduced the clinic’s operation costs and thus increase the customer base. Again, the 

clinic has been operating in the community for a long time and thus has harnessed a good public 

rapport. Its involvement in community service delivery as a corporate responsibility has given it 

an edge over the other clinics. Moreover, the breast cancer health care service shall be self­

advertising since the mobile clinic will move around the village. However, public address 

systems mounted on the caravan will be used. Social media and other local newsrooms will also 

be deployed. 

Weaknesses 

Neptune clinic which is researching the feasibility of implementing a Mobile 

Mammography Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Screening has setbacks that have weakened its pro­

activeness in the project implementation. These areas need revitalization for the clinic to 

profitably and effectively implement the Mobile Mammography Breast Cancer Diagnosis and 

Screening. One of the notable weaknesses is low staff remunerations. Low staff remuneration is 

likely to hinder it from acquiring highly qualified and competent Mammography technologists 

that are necessary for the project implementation (De Mil et al., 2019). This area needs 

reevaluation in the current financial year to ensure the subsequent year considers rising its staff 

pay. However, this will depend on the clinic’s profitability which remains competitive. Another 

weakness of the clinic is poor marketing strategies. Normally, the clinic­based its marketing

activities on community services. Although these are good strategies, the cost implications are 

high thus lowering its profitability. The current technological advancement requires that the 

clinic employs vibrant social media marketing strategies, professional sites, and the proposed 

mobile health care service delivery. 

Opportunities

Many opportunities are presenting themselves in the market and health care field. First, 

the technological advancement is providing a decent opportunity to exploit so that the clinic is 

offering diverse health care services associated with cancer. It is also important to note that 

cancer screening and diagnosis use very sophisticated technologies that the clinic can make use 

of given its robust financial base. Second, this is the first and the only mobile clinic in the 

community. Breast cancer screening and diagnosis services are about 15 km away. The 

population struggles to access the facility coupled with the high cost of health services. The 

clinic has the opportunity to grow and expand in the population vibrantly. Third, the scantly 

exploited social media marketing strategy. Reaching a large number of aged people requires 

going to their comfort zones. Most the aged people are literate and users of mobile gadgets like 

mobile phones, and laptops. Making use of the widespread internet services in the community 

can assist the clinic to reach many people with health care services and information in real­time. 

Again, informing the population of the need for an early diagnosis and screening might give it an

added advantage because it will populate itself and be capable of handling patients’ responses 

and health needs. 

Threats

The most obvious threat is competition from related health care clinics. The community 

has many medical clinics with diverse health care services although most are located away from

rural. Again, reaching out is not a practice many facilities do. But the practice might be n option 

for most of them since many companies are currently opting to move close to the patients. 

Conclusion

The Mobile Mammography Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Screening in the Orland 

community is a feasible project for the Neptune Geriatric Clinic. The revenue returns are way 

significant to sustain its operations. The results of the project are desirable by many 

organizations in the world and the health agencies of the country. The tax and legal requirements

are permitting, with adequate policies in place to facilitate its operations.
