Without sacrificing quality, we can help you create healthcare cost management solutions.

Why do Hospitals/Healthcare Systems Need Cost Management?

When hospitals and other healthcare systems utilize cost management, they run more efficiently, while also optimizing scheduling, staffing, and patient flow. This leads to improved operations, patient experience, lower staff burnout, and other lasting impacts that are important to the quality of the healthcare system.

When costs rise, patients and hospitals feel the impact. Some of the implications of high prices include:

  • Patient Impact: Rising costs can make it difficult to provide the best patient care possible. Organizations may look for ways to reduce short-term costs that could impact long-term goals. By using effective cost management strategies, hospitals can avoid this potential impact.
  • Staff Turnover: Dealing with budget and pricing problems can trickle down to staff and working conditions. When workers feel like the environment is unstable, understaffed, or underappreciated, it can lead to high staff turnover rates.

To avoid these issues and alleviate the stress of cost management, teams can count on cost management and staffing solutions. By utilizing these solutions, you can onboard talented employees quickly to reduce downtime and fill open positions in the workplace. When companies utilize cost management services, they can turn toward focusing on the business of patient care and providing the best services possible.

Top Strategies to Reduce Healthcare Costs for Your Company

Strategies that healthcare organizations can use to contain healthcare costs include:

  • Optimize Staffing: Effective hiring and onboarding processes are essential for healthcare organizations. Health Carousel can aid in the staffing process by placing talented candidates in the right positions where they can train quickly and make an impact.
  • Increase Clean Claims: Work on streamlining and optimizing your claims process so you can increase “clean claims.” Clean claims are defined as claims with no errors or omissions. When a claim is clean, it can be processed without further verification from an individual or third-party service. Having consistent clean claims is a great way to reduce extra work and resources for your team so they can focus on patient care.
  • Decrease Time Accounts Spend in A/R: Reducing accounts receivable (A/R) time is a key way to maximize efficiency. Strategies to reduce time spent in A/R include setting processes for accurate documentation, focusing on clean claims, and educating payers on specific policies. For some organizations, outsourcing revenue and billing work can also effectively reduce A/R days and, in turn, increase and streamline revenue flow.

In addition to these strategies, healthcare organizations can count on the qualified team at Health Carousel to integrate staffing cost containment solutions.  

Here’s How We Can Help You Take Control

Optimize Cost Containment:

The total cost of staffing is greater than the cost of staff salaries. Factors that contribute to cost include training, staff turnover, new technology, the cost of your own time, contract labor, and the quality of patient care. Health Carousel helps organizations navigate unforeseen circumstances and inefficient staffing models. We offer a comprehensive solution of in-house QA processes that help you:

  • Reduce administrative burden related to staffing partners
  • Utilize flexible staffing

Healthcare Workforce Solutions:

Complementary contract labor is an essential part of addressing staffing shortages. Health Carousel offers a program that fills your staffing needs while also looking for the root cause of your challenges, creating the best possible outcome for your facility, your patients, and your staff. Your facility and patients will benefit from our clinically led team that keeps you prepared and informed every step of the way. You can expect to experience benefits such as:
