In its recent study, The Institute of Medicine (IOM) identified six major factors – or operational inefficiencies – that contribute to the $750 billion the IOM claims is wasted annually by the US healthcare system.
1. Unnecessary Services ($210 Billion)
2. Inefficient Delivery of Care ($130 Billion)
3. Excess Administrative Costs ($190 Billion)
4. Inflated Prices ($105 Billion)
5. Prevention Failures ($55 Billion)
6. Fraud ($75 Billion)
So what can YOU do to help close these gaps? We think the most realistic goal is to reduce costs by mastering operational efficiencies.
We’ll tell you more in our first webinar series of 2013, Seven Ways to Master Operational Efficiencies in Your Hospital, which is designed to equip you with seven simple ways to start mastering operational efficiencies in your hospital.
