The Operational Effectiveness Audit is a service offering designed to allow an adult acute hospital to identify areas of waste/redundancy that can be eliminated without creating a derogatory impact on staff. The audit comes with a $1,000,000.00 annual recapture guarantee (to the bottom line) and the average return is nearly $6,400,000.00 without downsizing.
The goal of the audit is to move away from examining, "how many people are being paid" in favor of, "how they are being paid and for what work". Successful outcomes derive from lowering the cost-per-hour of labor and overall labor need rather than from attacking people or programs.Back To Questions
