You should address all the elements of the assignment task listed below. Please note that tutors will use the assessment criteria set out below in assessing your work.

Maximum word count: 2500 words or Arden University equivalence, depending on format chosen
Produce a “pitch” to propose a digital health and care initiative, which will enhance, improve, or transform an aspect of health and social care service delivery. The overall pitch should not exceed 2500 words or Arden University equivalence. A “pitch” is a form of business proposal, pitching the idea, and usually presented to management, budget holders, and/or grant awarding panels.
The pitch should:
- outline the problem or issue for resolution
- showcase the proposed digital initiative
- analyse the value and benefit of digital technologies for different stakeholders
- discuss the risks and challenges associated with digital solutions.
- describe a digital badge that can be achieved by the workforce upon implementation of the initiative
As listed above, the pitch should include a proposal of a “digital badge(s)”, as an outcome if the initiative were to go to implementation. This badge is a training or educational element to the initiative, that should be suitable for the health and care workforce in question to achieve to demonstrate their understanding/skill in the implementation. This aspect demonstrates your leadership skills and supports awareness of the development of the workforce to enhance their own digital skills.
The pitch could be presented as a document, a presentation slide deck, as a presentation delivered as a recording, or a poster or leaflet. The choice is your responsibility, and all options offer the equal opportunity to demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes. Please use the assessment rubric to support your assessment development, as this shows what the piece will be marked against.
