This Final Team Assignment is focused on applying key executing and monitoring and controlling processes to a healthcare situation. Please note that your team has the latitude to use the appropriate plans and tools to meet the requirements, even if it means creating your templates, matrices, and documents. Make sure you use your creative skills to do this work. The bottom line is to ensure the project is delivered on time, within budget, and to the customer’s specifications. The Board is impressed with the work your team has completed to date, including the scope baseline, work breakdown structure (WBS), schedule baseline, milestones, and subsidiary plans (i.e., cost, quality, and procurement). At the recent Phase Gate review, the key stakeholders gave the “Go” decision for this project. 

Review Best Case Health (BCH) scenario: You were recently hired as a project manager by Best Care Health (BCH). You impressed the hiring committee because of your experience managing HIPAA-related projects. The leaders at BCH are progressive, and they are committed to being pioneers in the field of telemedicine, which pertains to the diagnosis and treatment of patients by using telecommunications technology. BCH operates 43 hospital campuses across the United States, and all these facilities are in rural areas. To make care more accessible to its patients, BCH wants to launch the telemedicine option as soon as possible. 

Mission Statement: Best Care Health (BCH) is to provide quality, innovative, and accessible medical care to individuals residing in the areas that we service. 

Vision Statement: We are committed to becoming the hospital of choice for the communities we serve, and we embrace innovative technologies that enhance the health care services we provide. 

As a team, please provide the following deliverables: 

(a) Provide clear details regarding your project scope control system. What is included? How do you plan to measure performance? Please include a discussion regarding the roles and responsibilities. 

(b) Apply the estimating techniques to your budgeting process, such as expert judgment, analogous, parametric, bottom-up, and three-point. Please note that your team is creating the budget for your project. The requirement is to ensure you have a process by which estimating is done, and this is where the techniques are used. 

(c) You will make assumptions regarding performance, which means the project is in the execution phase. Please use earned value management (EVM) techniques to show your project in the following situations: (a) performing poorly, (b) on target, (c) performing better than expected. Please use at least eight EVM calculations to present these different scenarios. Along with the calculations, please provide a short explanation regarding the result, and explain future actions that you might take given where you stand. 

(d) Create a resource assignment matrix (RAM) and determine how you plan to manage conflict for each resource. Please include a discussion regarding the appropriate interpersonal skills that can help you with resource management. Please note this is an action-document that is designed to help the team be prepared for contingencies that impact the project.
