Wk 3 – Summative Assessment: Implementation Plan and Cost-Benefit Analysis
Task 1 – Implementation Plan
For this assignment, you will use an AHRQ worksheet and tool that were created to be used in tandem. The purpose of the worksheet is to help you break down the scope of your project into manageable units of work whose outcome comprises a task or deliverable. The AHRQ Implementation Measurement tool will help you define a means of measurement within your plan.
Download the Implementation Plan Worksheet.
Complete the form by following the instructions that accompany the worksheet.

Download the Implementation Measurements tool.
Following the guidelines stipulated in the measurement tool, devise a means/tool for measuring the success of your project intervention.
Each best practice that you have identified on the Implementation Plan Worksheet will also need to have a defined means of measuring its success.
Briefly summarize what each best practice implementation consists of and how you will measure it.
Note: For additional support, you might consider using the IHI Improvement Tracker, which has measures already set up on numerous topics. Or you can create your own custom measures. The Improvement Tracker automatically graphs your data and lets you create reports.
Now that you have defined your project best practice tasks/deliverables, you will need to create a timetable for completing them.
Create a Gantt chart for your project. Include best practice tasks/deliverables on the chart as well as all project activities from development to implementation and evaluation. There are numerous Gantt chart templates available for free online, including a free Gantt chart template from Vertex42.com that is easy to use.
Task 2 – Cost-Benefit Analysis
Read the selected articles on cost-benefit analysis from the University Library.
Conduct a cost-benefit analysis for your project.
Develop a budget for your project. The budget will vary depending on the nature of your project. Start with the individual tasks/deliverables that you identified in your implementation plan and break them down in terms of cost (labor, materials, facilities, services, and overhead are all costs). The sum of all tasks on your implementation plan constitutes the total budget of your project.
Consider the potential benefits and savings that may result from your project implementation. There may be tangible and non-tangible benefits. Consider quality of life, reduced health care expenses, impact on population health and considerations of DEI, increased reimbursement, staff morale, institution liability, etc.
Create a table with a corresponding explanation to depict your project budget, potential benefits, and savings to demonstrate a cost/benefit ratio analysis. See the example of how to do this on a table.
Your assignment deliverable will consist of the following components:
Completed AHRQ Implementation Plan Worksheet
Summary of each best practice and how it will be measured
Tool developed for measuring the success of project intervention
Table depicting the budget and demonstrating a cost/benefit ratio analysis
