Details: Regency Health Care Group has been recently restructured as a patient-focused care organization, but your supervisor is wondering whether they should go back to a more traditional structure, with hierarchies established by professional function. You have been asked to compare the two structures to determine which would be best suited for Regency. Given what you know about Regency s services, analyze the pros and cons of the two structures with regard to Regency and discuss how these structures are likely to impact management and quality of care. Which structure would you recommend for Regency and why? Be sure to support your reasoning with details, examples, citations, and references. Present your findings to the rest of the staff via a PowerPoint presentation. Cite your references using APA guidelines.
