Human resources are those individuals with specialized skills and commitment to deliver health services. Strategic human resource planning enables organizations to support their master strategic plan by ensuring the organization is equipped from a human capital perspective to meet future demands.
For this assessment, put yourself in the role of a leader at St. Anthony Medical Center. You are making a report regarding your observations and analysis in the wake of what happened in the Vila Health media simulation related to this assessment.
This assessment can be organized into 2 parts:
Part 1: Comparison of Current Workforce to Future Needs.
Part 2: Staffing Plan and Competitive Advantage.
Part 1: Comparison of Current Workforce to Future Needs
For this part, present your analysis of St. Anthony Medical Center’s (SAMC) current state and preparedness with regard to their workforce. Additionally, comment briefly on how this compares to the needs and gaps you noted in the media scenario.

Part 2: Staffing Plan and Competitive Advantage
For this part of the assessment, you will present an ideal staffing plan based upon your analysis of the media simulation. Your plan should include measures that can be used to judge its success. Additionally, to help illustrate your plan’s importance and benefits to SAMC, present a compelling argument about what impact it may have on the organization if your staffing plan is not adopted, as well as the benefits of creating a competitive advantage through human resources.
