Focus more of your valuable time and resources on patient care
Healthcare is a business unlike any other. First, patients are not typical consumers – they do not always decide when and where they will seek care, the type of care they will get, how much to pay for it or how urgently they need it. Yet cost of care is a serious concern to them.
At the same time, you and your caregivers do not function as autonomously as a typical business. Legislators, regulators and payers all have an interest and often their policies affect both clinical and business decisions. The pressure, demand and challenges of controlling costs while delivering quality care will continue to accelerate.
And that means, for healthcare providers, efficiency is not merely good fiscal practice. It must be a critical component of their mission.
