Online low-cost psychotherapy service

Livewell is an online low-cost psychotherapy service similar to TalkSpace or Betterhelp, but focuses on patients over 55 years of age. While Livewell has been successful over their HIPAA-compliant web portal, the company now wants to deploy their service through a mobile app for Apple iPhones and iPads and Android tablets and phones.

This app must comply with the “Secure Electronic Messaging” guidelines required by HITECH legislation. It must pass all the security controls when reviewed by an independent security auditor
The app must allow secured two-way video chat using built-in device cameras.
The app must be available through iTunes and Google Play.
Use the structure of the attached business case template to develop a business case for YOUR case study. (Assignment should be in this format)

Weigh different options for execution and do the math on these–with at least Net Present Value and ROI. Google business cases for similar projects; this is where you will find your investment, cash outflow, and cash inflow numbers. For your NPV calculation, consider a 5-year benefit horizon and a 10% discount rate (for NPV).

EVALUATION OF THE AGENCY’S BUDGETING AND CUMULATIVE REPORT

Overview
As a consultant, you need to develop an in-depth analysis and evaluation of the selected agency’s budgeting parameters and then provide recommendations for improvement based on your research of related academic sources and websites. The analysis will be read by the VP of Public Service and client support, as well as by the leaders of the agency for whom you are working. Write a 4–6 page paper (including title and reference page) titled Part 4: Evaluation of the [Selected Agency]’s Budgeting and Cumulative Report, in which you separate the content into the following sections:

Analysis of Budgeting Plans and Actual Expenditures.
Implications of Foreign or Domestic Policy.
Budget Request and Recommendations.
Instructions
Determine which intergovernmental agencies contribute to or influence the budgetary decisions for the current and future budget over the next five years.
Based on your agency selection, analyze the impact of either international or domestic policy making on the current year’s budgets and its possible impact on future budget line items.
Examples of domestic policy impact could include neighboring localities or states providing assistance to other agencies.
Recommend two strategies which the agency could use to improve the budget for the next fiscal year. Recommendation should be detailed and focused.
Use at least two quality sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. Include no more than one nongovernment website.

Qualitative Methods

Explore the qualitative methods that could be used to collect data in your area of research. On the basis of your exploration, respond to the following points:

Explain the observations that you would conduct to collect data and discuss what you would expect to learn through these observations.
If surveys or interviews would be appropriate, describe how you would proceed and what you would expect to learn.

Capital Budget Analysis

You are a member of the financial services department at Benson Regional Medical Center. The chief financial officer and chair of the capital budgeting committee, Dana Foster, has requested that you perform some capital analysis of two proposed patient service programs.You have been provided with a spreadsheet that covers much of the projected financials for each of the proposed programs. Your task is to perform an analysis of that information and provide your recommendation to the capital budgeting committee as to which program they should pursue.You have been asked to create a presentation to present your findings to the capital budgeting committee.Using the provided spreadsheet, complete a capital budgeting analysis on the information provided in the spreadsheet. Specifically, you will need to identify a net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR), and a discounted payback period for proposed Program #1 and Program #2. You will present your finding in a presentation.

Design a PowerPoint presentation for the capital budgeting committee that includes all of the following:
Create a brief 1–2 slide description of the proposed programs.
Develop a comparison between the cash flow projects of each program from Year 0 to Year 5. Highlight the differences.
Compare the results and interpretation of the discounted payback period between both programs.
Compare net present value (NPV) for each program.
Compare the Internal rate of return (IRR) for each program.
Develop a recommendation for which program the capital budgeting committee should take into consideration. Include supporting rationale.

The Autonomic Nervous System

The Autonomic Nervous System can be challenging to understand because it is connected to virtually every body function in opposite ways. We are going to explore the physiology of the ANS in this discussion by looking at specific examples of how it works.

Initial post: For your first discussion post, describe how the parasympathetic nervous system influences one function in your body. For example, the parasympathetic nervous system causes decreased blood pressure. If you chose this body function, you would describe the physiology behind the decreased blood pressure. How does it happen? What occurs in the heart/blood vessels? Which scenarios or external factors would cause the parasympathetic nervous system to activate this response?
