Time to Tune Up Your Hospital’s Financial Engine?

Tune-up-hospital-financial-engineIf you owned a Ferrari, wouldn’t you keep the engine tuned?

How about if you ran a hospital? Would you keep the Operating Room tuned? After all, almost two thirds of your annual revenue comes from medical procedures, like the OR, the cath lab, etc.

Yet many procedure areas, including the OR, aren’t working to capacity. It has nothing to do with the efficiency of the procedure itself. And it’s not just a problem of better scheduling. Schedules, after all, are static documents which project hoped-for goals into the future. It takes more than that to actually keep procedures on schedule. It has to do with patient throughput and that means more than getting the patient in and out of the room.

Business Intelligence and the Hospital Bottom Line

Business-intelligence-hospital-bottom-lineThe Institute of Medicine recently urged healthcare leaders to take a page out of corporate playbooks and embrace the kind of technology which removes waste from hospital operations.

An example of this is business intelligence, the process by which companies make sense out of huge piles of data points. Those companies then use the refined information to improve production techniques, track patterns and forecast future trends.

While healthcare organizations collect tons of data, it’s seldom tapped on an enterprise level for the benefit of the overall organization.  This is mainly because of the silo structure which exists in most hospitals. Silos block the free flow of information. Any effort to introduce anything other than treatment technology is very often seen as an intrusion into patient care.
