You will assume the role of the healthcare management executive to whom the proposal was directed. You will draft a brief executive email communication directed to all employees of the organization, in which you will explain the issue that was originally presented in the scenario, as well as the solution you will implement.

Specifically, your email communication must address the following critical elements:
I. Introduction: Identify yourself as a management executive and identify the issue.
II. Explanation of Factual Background

C. Identify and briefly describe public health policy and population-health programs related to the issue. Call to attention any programs with particular relevance to the organization.
