“Every Hospital Should Be Expense Reduction Focused” says Lisa T. Miller, CEO of VIE Healthcare, “Containing or reducing indirect expenses is as important as finding new sources of revenue to improve the financial health of an organization."
Wall, New Jersey (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
VIE Healthcare announced today new training dates for their very successful and proprietary Certified Healthcare Expense Reduction Specialist Training Program. “C-HERS” is a web-based interactive four week instructor led training program designed to provide hospital employees the same expense reduction strategies, solutions & insights into “where to look for cost savings” that healthcare consultants utilize each day which saves hospitals millions of dollars annually.
“Every Hospital Should Be Expense Reduction Focused” says Lisa T. Miller, CEO of VIE Healthcare, “Containing or reducing indirect expenses is as important as finding new sources of revenue to improve the financial health of an organization. As an example, $100,000 in annual cost savings is equivalent to increasing new revenues by $5 million with a 2% operating margin.”
VIE Healthcare created the Certified Hospital Expense Reduction Specialist Training Program because over the years hospital administrators have asked us “How do hospitals learn best-practices in expense reduction and what training is available that teaches proven hospital expense reduction strategies which will achieve documented results? Are there new trends that our employees should be learning and executing in our own hospital?
In response to this demand – VIE Healthcare created a specialized training which teaches the same methods, strategies and the exact road-map we use to identify and maximize expense reduction opportunities for our hospital clients. “Over the last year, hospitals have been investing in VIE’s C-HERS program with tremendous results.” “We are teaching hospital employees to become their own healthcare expense reduction “specialists” through our 15 Modules of Expense Reduction Training” says Lisa T. Miller.
The C-HERS training utilizes The Blackboard Learn Platform, which is an innovative learning management system that offers a classroom-style flow that is used by major universities, corporations and associations and allows employees to learn from their your location in a dynamic structure. VIE’s instructors engage learners and interact with them effectively in order to enrich their education experience with mastery of VIE’s hospital expense reduction training.
The Certified Expense Reduction Specialist Training Program is recommended for many employees throughout a hospital such as Materials Managers, Key Buyer(s), employees from key departments involved in purchasing decisions including; Laboratory, Radiology, Cath Lab, Pharmacy and the Operating Room. This course also provides value for Finance Professionals, Accounts Payable & Designated/Specialized Employees.
“VIE’s C-HERS training & certification program is a strategic commitment a hospital makes which invests into key hospital employees and provides them with the resources and skills of expense reduction strategies and proven methods which will reap hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in non-labor expense reductions.” “The Certified Hospital Expense Reduction training will have documented financial value and deliver results to hospitals” says Lisa T. Miller, CEO of VIE Healthcare.
The Certified Hospital Expense Reduction Training includes the following Courses: Module 3 Top Spend Areas & Expense Reduction Opportunities: 90 Day Road-Map to Immediate Financial Results, Module 4 Data Mining, Auditing & Analysis: The Dollars are in the Details, Module 5 Service & Maintenance agreements: How to perform a quarterly and annual review for immediate expense reduction, Module 7 Purchased Service Contracts: This is a growing expense area with an estimated 33% of total hospital purchase dollars and with a significant opportunity for expense savings, Module 8 Hands On Part 1: Samples & discussion of real cost savings projects, Module 9 Hands On Part 2: Bring actual projects for opportunity identification & implementation of cost savings.
