Introduction

The healthcare field is characterized by several emerging issues due to increasing health care needs. Thus, healthcare providers need to keep implementing projects and development to meet these healthcare needs. The health care project is just like any other project that requires a plan, management, and assessment. Therefore, when implementing a healthcare project, the decision-makers in the healthcare facility will need to develop a project implementation management plan to ensure the project meets the right quality and address the intended need (Dahlgaard, 2011). in this case, this paper will outline a draft plan of a healing service program that will be implemented in our health facility. The draft will provide a brief overview of the project, key considerations to be made when implementing the project and SWOT analysis

A brief summary of the project

The hearing health care services are commonly known as hearing aid technology, and it's an essential component of improving health care services of people with hearing and communication challenges. The hearing health services include services such as a systematic and comprehensive assessment of clients with healing and communication issues and any other related medical condition (Traynor 2018). The treatment is based on the assessment cause of individual hearing loss, auditory rehabilitation, and their treatment need. The project will focus on treating or maximizing clients' hearing and communication ability to improve health care service provision.

Key considerations

The project manager to ensure the project is operational, economically, and financially feasible, there various considerations that should be taken to account during the planning and implementation of the project. The key considerations include but not limited to the following.

Project feasibility

The project feasibility outlines the viability of the project; in this case, the team will need to assess the need to implement the project, evaluate the availability of the resources required t meet the make the intended results, and the investment return ratio. In this project, the critical consideration the team is supposed to assess is the viability of the organization sponsoring the project.

The strategic effect

The strategic assessment of the project involves analyzing the opportunities that make this project easy to implement. In this project, the public policy and intervention can help effective project implementation. The most effective policy that needs to ensure the project is successful is a public sensation on care on aged people and people with disabilities.

Market analysis

The market of any product or service is a critical consideration that should be put in place before introducing such a product of service in the market. The hearing aid project target people with hearing and communication issues. The majority of people with hearing issues include the aged. In the USA, the population of people with over 60 years and above is about 20% of the entire population (NIDCD, 2017). Statistics indicate that more than 40% of aged people hearing and communication challenges.

The financial analysis

The financial feasibility of the project is the critical consideration the project team needs to assess. The team will need to find out the principal financier of the project, who will need the fund spend and net income of the project; this assessment also underneath the economic challenges the organization is expecting to face during project implementation (Liu, 2017). In the key financier of this project is the organization, then the organization is expecting donations from NGOs that deal with the welfare of aged people and people who live with disabilities, government agencies, and other community-based well-being.

The money that will be collected will be spent on implementing the technology need, purchasing of hearing aid devices, and paying the experts used to implement the program. The income of the income is expected from the sale of these services and hearing devices. This source of income is a key challenge since the Old people may not see the point of purchasing the tools, and some may be interest but no financial capacity.

The operational performance.

The operational performance analysis focus on analyzing how the project will affect other aspects of health services. The hearing health service program is expected to improve healthcare services for aged people (NASEM, 2016). the program is aimed to address the issues of misdiagnosis, mistreatment and enhance patient's compliance with doctors and nursing instructions

Outpatients

The team will consider implementing the program on the outpatient's health care program; thus, the team will allocate some days in the course of the week to offer these services.

Outlook.

The hearing health service intends to address more healthcare issues beyond addressing hearing and communication challenges. The program intends to enhance the health of aged people through the provision of quality services. The project aims at reaching the highest number of people with issues in the future.
