Medical Centers & Community Hospitals
Any discussion with
a hospital or nursing home facility executive will inevitably yield
the phrase “caught between a rock and a hard place”.
Practicing physicians certainly share in the same lament. Indeed,
the caregiver world is besieged by rapidly escalating operating
costs and static, or declining, reimbursement. This phenomenon is
coupled with an explosion of expensive technologies, which, while
certainly producing breathtaking advances in care, are often prohibitively
expensive. These factors combine to create the most difficult operating
environment for caregivers in modern history.
Over the past decade, hospitals and nursing homes have aggressively
cut expenses to a point where many administrators fear increased
errors and quality declines. To date, many administrators have,
for the most part, implemented imaginative cost reduction strategies.
And, Agilence believes that present and future technology innovations
portend a greater ability to implement advances in administrative
and clinical efficiencies. However, with the exception of several
ingenious methodologies for revenue enhancement and re-capture through
audits and financial algorithms, less imagination and concerted
effort has been directed to accelerating top-line revenue growth.
Agilence believes the industry could use a healthy dose of innovation
in this arena. The caregiver world has only begun to fully embrace
and adopt top-line revenue growth approaches as the the best avenue
to prsperityin a market-driven healthcare marketplace. Agilence
