Hospital Support Costs: Making the Most of your Resources

Hospitals benefit everyone in some way. Whether it be an elderly person suffering a stroke or a child with an allergic reaction, hospitals provide the medical attention and environment necessary for both patients and their loved ones. Unfortunately, hospital support costs are rising and current funding cannot always bridge the gap. In order to continue serving the community, hospitals need to make the most of their resources. First, hospital administration needs to identify where money is or could be lost within the organization. The problem could be difficult to pinpoint if it has created a domino-effect. For example, if a hospital is working with a reduced number of personnel, often times, they are expected to wear a variety of hats. To meet the needs of the community, hospital personnel benefit from having credible resources and streamlined processes in place. Imagine you are working with a specific software, and due to a lack of education and support, are unable to tap into its potential. You feel frustrated and confused. You are responsible for a wide-range of tasks and because this duty is neither easy nor efficient, you decide to push it lower on the to-do list. Answer the following question; what did you need to feel comfortable and confident with the software? The most common response is someone to educate and support you. Lacking the knowledge and support to successfully use PeopleSoft not only affects hospital personnel and their ability to carry out their job responsibilities, but the deficiency also influences hospital support costs. Employees will be more productive if they understand PeopleSoft and its services and have support available to answer questions. With a strategic plan and support in place, hospitals can take advantage of this resource and reduce other costs within the organization.
