The Next Race for Space Will Be In America’s Emergency Rooms
As the aging Baby Boom generation begins winding its way through America's healthcare system, another group is close behind — the newly insured. Together, they form a tsunami of 120 million individuals who will stress U.S. healthcare system like never before.
No one had predicted the aftershock health reform could cause by insuring an entirely new segment of society precisely as the leading edge of Boomer Nation starts knocking on the ER doors.Download the PDF »
Better Care and Better Bottom Line
The federal government set aside $19 billion for hospitals to adopt electronic medical records, but how will that help hospitals with their pledge to trim $155 billion in waste under the current reform law?
Three out of four healthcare executives say it won’t help, according to the 2011 HeathLeaders Media Better Care and the Bottom Line survey. Seventy-three percent of those surveyed said technology incentives should go beyond EMRs to include operational and system efficiency needs.
Squeezing Water from a Stone
As the health reform law now stands, American hospitals must trim $155 billion in waste over the next decade. But how will that happen? Job freezes and layoffs are no longer viable solutions. Asking staff to do more with less cannot continue indefinitely. Mistakes cost lives and money. Throw in a projected nursing shortage, an aging population and health coverage for millions more Americans, and you have the ingredients for calamity.
What Every Healthcare Executive Needs To Know About Reform
After decades of squeezing inefficiencies out of their hospitals, healthcare executives are being asked to squeeze some more, just as healthcare reform will increase demand for services. So what is the answer? Executives need a solution that will address overcrowding and produce revenue immediately. By automating and optimizing patient flow, hospitals are converting time into space. As much as 20 percent more space without adding a single new bed. It’s providing sustainable operating efficiencies which are yielding savings, revenue and information which can help them build business.
