Process Improvement and Labor Expense Management
Labor management is central to operations in hospitals and healthcare organizations. Inefficiencies can have enormous impact on an organization’s productivity, as well as on its expenses. FTI Consulting ’s approach to labor expense management is rooted in process improvement within departments, rationalization of activities across services including consolidation of activities/departments, focus on premium pay and benefit expense and review of organizational structure to reduce management layers and improve effectiveness. Productivity targets are designed to sustain productivity gains over the long term. FTI Consulting ’s robust and flexible productivity monitoring tool tracks and trends productivity and labor expense in an on-going basis.
