Abstract Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) is a condition involving two types of abnormal blood clot formations. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occur when blood clots form in in deep veins. If a clot travels to the lungs it becomes a pulmonary embolism (PE). (John Hopkins Medicine, 2014). Venous Thromboembolism(VTE) have contribute to high cost in healthcare, especially in surgical procedures. This article address the importance of monitoring Venous Thromboembolism care, and a way to provide grants as an avenue to eliminate Venous Thromboembolism cases. A step by step plan that can be executed by the CFO of a health care organization is also presented. Hospitals can resolve Acquired Venous Thromboembolism disorders by purchasing better surgical equipment, establishing a validation protocol for risk assessment, and by providing an educational program aligned with the measures of the National Quality Forum (NQF) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The overall goal would be to create an environment that provides indicators to monitor VTE. First, health care management need to decide what type of healthcare model will offer the patient the best care. Integrated delivery model provides the best way to monitor accountability, and can serve as the best health care indicator for health care business networks. In this project we used the integrated delivery model to form a network of healthcare professionals to operate a VTE grant organization. Their performance is monitored each month by the various indicators such as laboratory results, nurse performance, and patient mortality rates. On a larger business scale integrated delivery systems are a group of businesses coming together. With this grant organization only the integrated delivery model concept is used to contract independent doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to form a network. This team of professionals are called quality assurance team, and the manager is called a quality assurance practitioner (Q.A.P).
