3 steps to create sustainable hospital financial improvement
from Becker's Hospital Review
Tips on how to improve financial performance in any organization are a dime a dozen. Usually, organizations will readjust their focus on cutting costs by quickly glancing at labor expenses, supply chain and real estate — and cutting anything that is nonessential. Will King, senior manager at HFS Consultants, a healthcare financial consulting firm based in Oakland, Calif., says those strategies may work, but shallow attempts to improve performance with those strategies are rarely sustainable. This is especially true for hospitals and health systems, which are searching for some semblance of financial stability amidst potential Medicare sequestration and healthcare reform funding cuts.
