Workforce Efficiency

Improve productivity and healthcare workforce efficiency.

Consider what your hospital or health system faces today when comparing revenue to expenses. From 2011-2015 alone, approximately 30 percent of the 3,000 acute hospitals in the United States had negative operating margins each year. Rising labor costs, payer mix variation, and regulatory changes add pressure on these already tight ratios. Plus, an aging population means the potential for a widespread shortage of physicians and nurses in the near future is very real.

In order to deliver high-quality care and become a more efficient healthcare workforce against these trends, hospitals and health systems need to rethink traditional staffing models and find a more efficient solution. Our approach is tailor-made for each individual health system, to ensure your staffing model meets the needs of your community. We combine decades of consulting guidance and operations experience from organizations of all sizes to provide health systems with the right tools to create customized staffing models to efficiently deliver care and achieve your productivity potential.
