Guidebook provides the formulas and models for measuring and achieving total hospital efficiency and Medicare breakeven

Care Logistics has published a new hospital leadership guidebook called “Medicare Breakeven Challenges? A Model to Achieve Sustainable System Performance.” The guidebook includes:

  •     Formulas for two critical hospital efficiency metrics you probably aren’t measuring but should be
  •     A model for care that squeezes out unproductive “white space” and ensures sustained efficient operations
  •     The reasons why greater efficiency goes hand-in-hand with improved clinical outcomes and patient experience

“Medicare breakeven is an Everest for hospital leaders and seems more elusive than ever as reimbursements continue to shrink,” said Ben Sawyer, co-author and executive vice president of Care Logistics. “But it’s achievable and sustainable.”

Sawyer said that the key for hospitals is to adopt a “production model” for care delivery to achieve sustainable system performance. He likened the hub-and-spoke care model to the approach delivery companies use to ensure that packages arrive on time, or how air traffic control ensures the safe takeoff and landing of all planes in flight, all the time.

“Efficient, system-focused care coordination makes operations reliable, drives down costs and enables sustained delivery of quality care with margin at Medicare reimbursement rates,” said co-author Samantha Platzke, CFO and SVP of system performance at Care Logistics. “It’s how hospitals will thrive in a value-based world.”

The Medicare Breakeven Challenges Guidebook can be downloaded in its entirety from the following site:
