Elevate Perioperative Performance
Hospitals face dozens of challenges related to operating room efficiencies, such as scheduling, managing daily processes, controlling suply and implant costs, and more.
Without addressing these challenges, hospitals are unable to run their operating rooms and perioperative programs at peak efficiency.
GE Healthcare Partners' proven approach to perioperative transformation is comprised of four critical areas
Reimagine Clinical Variation
Reducing clinical variation represents a critical element of a healthcare organization's ability to deliver more affordable healthcare. However, reducing variation successfully and sustainably - while simultaneously maintaining or even improving outcomes - requires clinical redesign initiatives that optimize care deliver and engage physicians.
GE Healthcare Consulting teams with physicians and care management staff to redesign care. Using data, analytics, and peer-appropriate benchmarks, we identify areas of clinical variation and recommend ways to reduce costs, right-size resources and improve outcomes. We then work together to redesign processes across the acute and post-acute continuum.
This results in a true partnership between physicians and care management staff in the pursuit of shared goals to reduce clinical variation, optimize patient throughput, and increase quality.
Enhance Capacity and Throughput
Optimizing capacity and patient flow in the hospital and across the system is critical to improving patient access and satisfaction, and delivering the best value for the patient. At GE Healthcare Consulting, we can help you identify key priorities for the design and implementation of your new care management model.
Additionally, as care management expands beyond the four walls of an acute care hospital to the full continuum of care, managing the health of a population requires coordinating care managers in your hospital(s) with those in primary care provider offices, specialty clinics, managed care plans, and post-acute venues to achieve an integrated approach.
GE Healthcare Consulting’s comprehensive Integrated Care Management solution can help you expand your services to the communities your serve.
Our care management experts can help you evaluate your current care management model for key processes including:
Physician advisor services
Optimize Non-Labor and Pharmacy costs
In order to achieve an additional 5-7%, organizations must shift attention from incremental cost reduction projects to a more proactive, comprehensive non labor cost management program.
When prioritizing opportunities in supplies, pharmaceuticals and purchased services, organizations need to consider GE Healthcare Partners’ 360o methodology that includes:
Supplier and Product Standardization
Supply and Drug Utilization Management
Revenue Enhancement Programs(340B, lab outreach, food services, parking and other categories)
