Resource Allocation is the distribution of financial resources to people groups, or programs in a healthcare organization. When it comes to allocation of resources in the healthcare field it is important to use descriptive statistics to help determine and utilize medical resources. According to Rexford Santerre and Stephen Neun, allocative and production efficiency heavily rely on statistical data in healthcare (Casto, R., 2018).
Data analyzes and priority settings have made the decision-making process more effective when determining the best method when deciding which group of people or individual receives resources. In the study and figure shown below there were 360 different terms that used decision criteria classification and descriptive statistics. Figure 3 shows the top 10 criteria for allocating resources in this study. These charts illustrate which criterion is most effective according to health outcomes, type of service, economic impact, evidence, priorities, target disease, therapeutic context, complexity, and coverall context (Guindo, 2012).

“Quality improvement initiatives and projects cannot be justified simply because “everyone is doing it”; they must be considered on the basis of financial or societal benefits” (McLaughlin, 2017, p. 223). I have used the quality improvement approach in my current role with nearly all departmental workflows, which has proven to be successful through member and provider experience survey results. The article I chose from the library focused on increasing the success rate of placing 2 large-bore intravenous (2LBIV) catheters to manage acute gastrointestinal hemorrhage (GIH). As a result of the decreased use of the 2LBIV method, a team was created to increase the use of this method, increasing results that can be measured and studied. According to (Medicine, 2019), “below is an overview of this quality improvement initiative:
I found this article to reinforce my personal opinion that quality improvement initiatives are proven effective when the team assembled to focus on an opportunity for improvement (OFI) works to achieve the same goal/expectation. Have any of my fellow classmates implemented a quality improvement process within your current or past role?
