Workforce Efficiency

A customized approach to workforce efficiencey.

Rising labor costs, payer mix variation, and regulatory changes continue to pressure margins, hospitals and health systems need efficient staffing models that deliver high-quality care. And as baby boomers age and will likely require more health care services, the Association of American Medical Colleges anticipates a widespread shortage of physicians and nurses by 2025.

How We Help Our Clients

Furthermore, many hospitals face variation when comparing revenue to expenses. From 2011-2015, approximately 30 percent of the 3,000 acute U.S. hospitals analyzed had negative operating margins each year. This trend shows it is time for hospitals and health systems to rethink traditional staffing models to:

  • Align staffing with patient need
  • Enhance quality of patient care
  • Increase revenue
  • Identify barriers and opportunities for improvement
  • Set realistic staffing targets
  • Address anticipated workforce shortages
