This is a broad question with may variables. In other words, in a Performance Planning Review, there will be many issues that will be discussed. In light of this, let me name of few of these issues.

First, as difficult as this is to say, we must realize that hospitals are businesses. They cannot survive without finances. In light of this, in any review, finances will be one of the most important topics, if not the most important. So, there will be a review of how money is spent and what type of return does that money produce.

Second, the effectiveness of staff and quality of care the staff provides will also be an essential component to any review. Part of this will be based on patient reviews, which many hospital keep on file.

Third, there will be supervisor reviews as well. This will give important feedback to staff. Hopefully the process will create people who are more compassionate and professional in what they do.

Finall, during this review any big problems that needs to be dealt with will be part of the discussion as well.
