  3. 3. HAP 705 Strategic Management & Marketing in Healthcare Instructor: Andrew Carle, MHSA, Assistant Professor College of Health and Human Services Robinson Hall A359 Office: 703-993-1902 Office Hours: Mon. 10 a.m.–Noon, Thur. 1–3 p.m. Email: acarle@gmu.edu Text: Required: Strategic Management of Healthcare Organizations, 4th Edition. Ginter, Swayne, and Duncan. Blackwell Publishers, 2002 Recommended: Managing Corporate Lifecycles Ichak Adizes, Prenctice Hall Press, 1999 Course Description: This course provides an understanding how healthcare organizations identify, create, and market their services within the context of a long-term strategic plan. The course will analyze the evolution and role of strategic management within the healthcare industry, and how it has responded to individuals in need of healthcare services. The class will also examine core components of the strategic management process, including situation analysis, strategy formulation/implementation (including product life cycle analysis; adaptive, market entry, and positioning strategies; and value chain analysis), and strategy control relative to the mission and vision of the healthcare organization. As an adjunct to these concepts, the class will analyze local business and healthcare organizations, and cases studies from throughout the healthcare industry in both group and individual formats. Course Objectives: As healthcare administrators, managers, and/or practitioners, a key objective of this course is to provide you with the ability to not only understand strategic management and marketing, but to effectively participate in and/or lead the development of a strategic management plan. This objective recognizes that successful organizations routinely include their employees in the development of such plans. This is particularly important in healthcare organizations, where the service(s) provided effect the very health and well being of the individuals served. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: 1. Analyze factors that influence the overall supply and demand for health services; 2. Evaluate the roles of regulatory, business, religious and other institutions and their effect on the strategic management process; 3. Evaluate the ongoing influence of providers and suppliers within the healthcare system; 4. Analyze the competitive environment in which healthcare organizations operate. 5. Evaluate the role of culture and leadership in creating overall mission and vision; 6. Utilize the Value Chain approach to managing both service delivery and service support functions in support of the strategic management/marketing plan;
  4. 4. 7. Utilize techniques for effective case study analysis; 8. Create a strategic management/marketing plan. Instructor Expectations: As indicated above, in the real world the development and implementation of a strategic management plan involves the participation of all an organization’s employees. In the same way, your involvement (through class participation, discussion, and team exercises) will be an integral part of the class, with 20% of the course grade held for this purpose. Each class will include a review and discussion of the assigned chapter(s), followed by more elaborate review and discussion of case studies from a variety of healthcare organizations. Class attendance and completion of the readings and assignments will be necessary to complete this process. You will additionally be asked to complete an analysis/paper of both the Mission Statement and Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) for an identified healthcare organization, each of which will comprise 25% of the total grade. Finally, a Healthcare Related Case Study will be assigned to represent the Final Paper/Exam for the course, representing 30% of the grade. All paper assignments are due at the beginning of class on the date due. I will be happy to discuss drafts of papers if received 5 days in advance of the due date.
