Module 3
Competency assessment gap report
Overview: The healthcare management and leadership competency assessment is
based upon two data sources: previous course material and information; and the
personal profile document completed at the time of admission into the masters
program. A comparison is made between both data sources and the American
College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) core leadership competencies. This
collective comparison becomes the competency assessment report.
Part I. Previous course material and information
Instructions: Review the content and information studied and received in each of
the HAD/HED/HSV courses below. Identify any areas of study that pertain to each of
the specific domains of the ACHE core leadership competencies. Describe the level
of competency proficiency for each of the five domains in the ACHE model.
Rate the level of perceived proficiency by circling the most accurate value using this
scale:
1 = no proficiency
2 = inadequate level of proficiency
3 = adequate level of proficiency
4 = above average level of proficiency
5 – = high level of proficiency
Record any notes below the rating scale that further explain the selected rating and
the rationale for making this determination.

from the original
personal profile to
this current
assessment;
interpretation
Communication and relationship management
Original value =3
Current value =4
Interpretation:
My communication and relationship management has slightly
slightly improved to an above average level of proficiency. This

communicate effectively. I, however, do believe that I can
improve to a high level proficiency.
Professionalism
Original value =4
Current value =3
Interpretation:
As a healthcare practitioner, my professionalism in this field has
exhibited an adequate level of proficiency. Although the original
value is slightly higher than my current value, I am confident
that my level of professionalism will improve in due time to an
above average level and consequently, to a high-level
proficiency.
Leadership
Original value =3
Current value =3
Interpretation:
In accordance with my traits as a leader and practitioner, I
believe that I possess leadership skills which have been
influenced by the application of ACHE leadership competencies
in my daily activities. I have mentored and mobilized teams in
my area of expertise to provide quality healthcare and treatment
to patients. My relationship with colleagues also plays a major
role in supporting this leadership trait as we work in teams and

further and gain more leadership skills to become a role model in
health administration.
Knowledge of the healthcare environment
Original value =3
Current value =4
Interpretation:

interact with lecturers and other professionals in healthcare thus
improving my knowledge further.
Business skills and knowledge
Original value =3
Current value =3
Interpretation:
The original and current values relating to my business skills and
knowledge is level at 3, implying that I have an adequate level of
proficiency in this field which has stagnated. I possess good
collaborative skills which are essential in maintaining higher
levels of productivity. I also have interpersonal skills significant
in relating and interacting with patients, colleagues, and
healthcare staff in general. Furthermore, I also have financial
management skills as I believe in working on a budget and
adhering to them. Such business and knowledge skills are
important and should be incorporated and practiced in
healthcare. I must continue reading and improving in this domain
so that I can achieve their highest level of competency.
Introduction
Over the course of my learning experiences as a Health Administration major, I have
developed the skills to become a competent health practitioner. When I began studying at Jon’s
University, I knew that I had to do my best to accomplish the competencies that would ensure
I improve my professionalism as a health administrator in the future. I quickly recognized that
a major in Master of Health Administration (MHA) with a focus on health care quality would
help shape my future career. I am very keen on advancing in my career and I very well
understand that in today’s competitive and global job market there is a substantial and proven
need for advanced degrees to compete and succeed. I have realized that most healthcare
institutions are hiring people with advanced degrees in health administration. This means that
healthcare institutions are under pressure to provide high-quality care services and to guarantee
patient safety.
Career Goals
When I started at SJU, I had several career goals and this course has assisted me to
achieve them. I realized the importance of business skills and knowledge, which includes
quality improvement, risk management, and information management, as a core competency
for the healthcare executive and continue to pursue it on a professional level (American College
of Healthcare Executives, 2016). My first career goal aims at reinforcing my knowledge and
comprehension in healthcare accreditation such as the International Society for Quality in
Healthcare (ISQua), The Saudi Central Board for Accreditation of Healthcare Institutions
(CBAHI), and JCAHO. Secondly, I intend to make sure that the healthcare institutions have
well-informed patients that demand high-quality care through information sharing and shared
decision-making. My professional objective is offering an integrated healthcare system that
1
would make healthcare services appropriate, accessible, and comprehensive for various
patients. My second professional objective is providing effective and efficient healthcare
services, which means patients could receive high-quality care services at minimal costs.
The Work in the Master’s Program that is Preparing me for my Future Career Goals
From the onset, I understand that the achievement of these career goals would require
me to take several courses, for example healthcare organization, healthcare informatics, and
managed care, seriously. Additionally, when the professors ask for a free topic research, I
always choose a topic that is related to healthcare accreditation. In my research, I identify that
offering high-quality care services at minimal costs are challenging but not impossible. I am
working hard to know the differences between various healthcare accreditations and how they
can be implemented. Indeed, implementing healthcare accreditation could prevent medical
errors, provide high-quality care services, and save resources.
Besides giving full attention in my classes, I usually go to the library for improving my
knowledge and taking advantages from them. Reading scientific books, articles, and journals
have helped me a lot in gaining information to achieve my career goals. Indeed, my professors
are giving me great assistance in answering several inquiries and providing recommendations
and advice about the healthcare system, especially in healthcare accreditation. The career
center employees, also, are directing me to find several opportunities which are related to
healthcare accreditation or healthcare informatics. Moreover, I am planning to take some
healthcare accreditation workshops that could help me to achieve my career goals.
Work History that has Prepared me for my Future Career Goals
My work history has helped me achieve my career and professional goals. My position
in the healthcare quality department at Umm al-Qura University hospital enables me to achieve
2
my career goals. In fact, healthcare accreditation is my passion and I am helping my colleagues
to get an accreditation. I am presenting several lectures in the university and the hospital about
health accreditation and the benefits from earning it. I am informing and explaining to the staff,
both the medical field as well as the administrative field, mechanisms and methods in the
healthcare accreditation. For example, the Electronic Health Record (EHR) is considered a
critical role in earning healthcare accreditation. Therefore, the Umm al-Qura University
hospital, where I work, is working to adopt an integrated electronic health record (EHR) and
decision-support where patients could receive high-quality care services at minimal costs. In
this regard, I was able to align my career and professional goals and achieve them by the end
of my MHA course.
Conclusion
Seeking a MHA is helping me to achieve my career goals which are reinforcing my
knowledge in healthcare accreditation and healthcare informatics. It is a magnificent
opportunity to improve my knowledge in the health care sector, and a great turning point in my
life. Finally, I am so proud …
