Write a minimum 500-word APA essay that describes the overall process problem being addressed in your process map. Create a process map by using the
same health care system component used in your Module One assignment (SEE ATTACHED PPT). Once the map is created identify what type of map it is,
add a title to the map and one paragraph illustrating what the overall process problem is being solved.
Within a process map, distinct shapes are used for different purposes; for example, a rectangle denotes a process, a diamond is used where a decision
needs to be made, and arrows indicate movement from one step to another. Oval shape is used to illustrate the beginning and end of a process. Rectangular
shape is considered a process box. This is the action that needs to be done at that step in the process, for example, collect data, analyze data, or use a form.
The diamond demonstrates decision points. Multiple directions (yes/no) to illustrate distinct pathways based on which option occurs. Directional arrows
help the user follow the flow of the process. It is helpful to keep the arrows going in the same directions as much as possible to simplify the map. A process
box is a place where there are multiple steps that need to be further defined. Two kinds of process maps: Basic, cross-functional or swim lane format. Basic
is simple, illustrates the decisions, starting and end points, and processes. It has a maximum number of steps with a limited number of options. Crossfunctional or swim lane format have more than fifteen steps and/or a need for separate rows (swim lanes) for different disciplines or parallel activities.
Examples are listed in the textbook on page 529, Figure 21.3 and page 532, Figure 21.6. SEE ATTACHMENT FOR EXAMPLE) For this assignment do not
