The writer describes the feasibility of the study and believes with the excellent team work at the place of work, the practice implementation process will be excellent. The writer need to expound on the study feasibility; why is the study important, or what would happen if the practice. The potential barrier identified in the study is communication; which calls for intense research to ensure that there is strong foundation that can help fight alleviate doubts among the stakeholders involved (Stafford Medicine, 2016). The issue of confidentiality is also highlighted. The main risk identified is change resistance among the staff and patient pulling out of the study prematurely. The benefits highlighted are mainly patient satisfaction as it will improve patient outcome. This justifies the time and costs that will be used to implement the practice. The study will need to be approved by IRB as it involves human being in order to ensure that they are not harmed (Unites States Department of Health and Human Services, 2016).

The article argues that the practice change is feasible, but the writer states that there has been ground of the work that have been done already; which makes me question the relevancy of re-doing the work. The data that will be used are from Electronic Health Record; again, how will the researcher ensure that there is patient confidentiality (Centre for Health Law and Policy Information, 2015)? The main challenge highlighted by the article is lack of adequate resources (regular educator) and transportation of the patient, making it difficult to implement the practice effectively. The main limitation of risk is failing to get adequate attendance for the program. The strengths/benefit identified includes increases income. According to the writer’s argument, the time and costs justify the project as they promise improvement of the clinical outcomes by increasing the clinic revenue and simultaneously reducing the cost of care, especially among the primary acute care (DNCC, 2013).
