Problem: How do you analyze operational throughput and quality efforts, all the while perceiving their financial implications? Connecting operations to the hospital’s silos of systems is the missing piece of the profitability puzzle. Silo-ed systems of operations and quality management create systemic inefficiencies in healthcare systems. Doesn’t everything have a financial impact? So why not understand how your efforts to reduce LOS, re-admissions and to keep patients safe and satisfied all the while documenting core measures, can lead to financial gain or loss. Are you providing quality cost effective services which offer value? Payers want to know so shouldn’t you? Discharges and admissions, LOS and nursing unit performance as well as case mix need attention in real time in order to effectively manage performance in complex healthcare delivery system.
