We Provide Solutions!
Benchmarking your activity-based FTEs and labor costs against your peers is a great idea. Converting negative labor cost variances to a bottom-line positive is even better..
Productivity and Resource Management Solutions
The IMPACT benchmark database contains validated staffing and activity information from more than 750 hospitals, 304 unique department types, and 24,000 hospital departments. With IMPACT you can:
- Use activity-based department benchmarks to develop, calibrate and adjust department-level workload-based staffing standards.
- Track workload-based productivity, hours worked to hours paid ratios, and overtime use.
- Graphically track the relationship between department staffing decisions and workload.
- Identify cost reduction opportunities.
Today’s hospital must be able to effectively plan, direct, organize and control resources. Most importantly, it must have the ability to react quickly when changes occur. If the hospital’s structure contains too many layers, or if there are span of control issues, it will not be able to do so.
Genuine and potentially very significant opportunities to increase net revenue and reduce expenses are available to hospitals that act to reorganize business lines, realign reporting relationships, and rethink corporate structures. Current and projected revenue and expense trends have created a perfect storm that makes taking action critically important. To learn more about how you can put IMPACT Organizational Solutions to work in your hospital, send us an e-mail or call (816) 587-2120. We will be glad to schedule a conference with your senior management team to help you determine if our services are a good fit for current priorities.
