In many clinics, occupational health professionals are struggling to justify their daily activities
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Nurses in Federal Government occupational health clinics could be using data more effectively to justify their budgets in the face of increasing constraints, according to Dr Mary Anne Alexander, President and MD of Prime Analytics and medical product consultant at Medgate. Dr Alexander will lay out how this can be achieved in a free webinar at 11:00 EST on April 30.

In many clinics, occupational health professionals are struggling to justify their daily activities. In the face of ever-shrinking budgets and pressure from various stakeholders, quantifying and proving the impact of occupational health programs is a constant battle, particularly for those saddled with outdated and archaic record systems. This struggle has always been central to the practice of occupational health – how can you justify the cost of your programs in terms that make sense from a financial point of view?
However, as Dr Alexander will demonstrate, the ability to maintain accurate records, quickly produce impact reports, and perform sophisticated analysis on these reports will make all the difference when budget reviews come around.
“By collecting more data and more complete data, you can get a better idea of what’s going in your clinic and provide a much more compelling case supporting your medical facility,” says Dr Alexander.
“The more sophisticated and compelling the reports – the easier it is to justify your budget and show the impact that your programs are having on your employees.”
