Finance

Decreasing cost and increasing revenue are the two drivers for improved financial performance for hospitals. The process of optimizing these two factors while keeping quality care as a top priority is anything but simple. We can help.

Clinical variation and redesign are important because unwarranted clinical variation may result in poor clinical outcomes, sub-standard care, wasted resources, excessive costs, and disappointing experiences for patients and families. Delivering higher-quality care at a lower cost is proving to be a competitive differentiator for health systems that have successfully reduced unwarranted clinical variation.

With Michael Hill, MD and Associates care initiatives and analytics, facilities can reduce the variation in care across the clinical spectrum – from medical, orthopedic, cardiovascular, and to spinal care diagnoses. By using defined frameworks for standardization with proven evidence-based protocols, care pathways, and clinical decision support tools with a supporting physician alignment strategy, health care systems can effectively address unwanted variation from the outpatient area through the hospital and into the post-acute care setting.

Operations

Efficient operations help a hospital improve patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes and financial performance. The first step that Michael Hill, MD and Associates takes is a comprehensive operation assessment. 

The operational assessment process encompasses the review and assessment of hospital strategy, operations, staffing, supply chain, revenue cycle, finance, medical staff issues and facility leadership. The process begins with an in-depth review of data and documents, along with one-on-one interviews with individuals on the hospital’s board of directors, its management team, department directors and its medical staff.
