Course Overview

The current healthcare environment requires that healthcare organizations across the globe find ways to reduce operating expenses while improving quality. When faced with the need to cut costs, many think of staff reductions, across-the-board decreases, or curtailing select programs and services.

However, they fail to realize that hidden in their organizations are millions of dollars in overuse, misuse, and rework that can be removed not only without sacrificing but, in many cases, improving long-term quality and safety.

Similar to any other major business problems, addressing the cost of healthcare may seem overwhelming and impossible to solve. Fortunately, there is a way to address the challenge of escalating healthcare costs that reduce the dependence on cost-shifting and benefit cutbacks.

Participants attending the course will develop the following competencies: 

  • Report results using a balanced scorecard technique
  • Use the 10 ways to improve healthcare cost management
  • Increase costs for strategic decision-making capability
  • Know the ways to differentiate your healthcare program
