During the development of a project change proposal, many considerations must be taken into account. These considerations may include financial, quality, and clinical information, that should be thought of. When creating a change proposal, a major hurdle can be related to the financial aspect of implementation or creation. The proposal will take potentially a large amount of labor induced costs, in addition to the cost of supplies. Many changes are welcome in healthcare because they can improve care quality and save costs (Al-Abri, 2007). This can work against the proposal if it is not within the budget. However, the change can result in overall cost savings for the healthcare system if implemented. If my communication change is implemented it can result in a potential savings for the hospital as it can result in a lower length of stay, increased safety, and increased patient satisfaction. Quality in healthcare is also an important aspect as it directly effects the patient care and outcome. If the quality of communication is good the continuity of care will be good, and the care will be better than if there was a loss of communication. This in turn directly affects the clinical aspects of care. Without necessary communication care will be poor. If the plan is implemented the communication will improve, and patient care should be better compared to before.
