Productivity

In healthcare, much the same as in all other business, labor costs contribute to the largest portion of annual expenditures. Therefore, we at Altius believe it is critically important to not only routinely monitor this disbursement, but also to appropriately manage it. Our productivity and benchmarking services enable clients to do just that. We provide hospitals and healthcare systems with the tools necessary to properly align staff with changing patient volumes. Our proven process is focused on the successful evolution of healthcare organizations, providing highly effective means to controlling costs while enhancing the overall patient care experience.

Assessing Status

As the popular saying goes, “time is money” and healthcare leaders know that waste can be extremely damaging to an organization’s bottom line. It is possible to run efficiently and still deliver quality care and a high level of patient/employee satisfaction. Assessing the status of your hospital or healthcare system is the first place to start. Our benchmarking process compares the current operating level of your organization to national, regional, and state standards as well as best in class facilities within a customized peer group. The Altius team of experienced and specialized consultants collaborates with the management team to conduct individual department assessments and obtain qualitative information on non-traditional practices and barriers to productivity. This data drives the development of realistic benchmarks, achievable targets, and detailed improvement recommendations for every functional area.
