The reports went out. The numbers came in. Americans are paying more for healthcare than ever before. But their outcomes aren't getting better. Your operating margins aren't getting bigger. So what's going on?
Five To Saves have traditionally been about one topic (even if we've danced around it a time or two). Moolah. Cash. Cheddar. Dough. In four words: Money, Money, Money, Money.
Read on if you're in a tight spot (all of healthcare is, by the way, since hospitals work with less than a 4% operating margin).
And on the supply side, more and more hospitals are learning to break up with their suppliers to save money. (If you are, too, our online store full of low-cost, long-dated product would like us to forward the message: "Hey, hospitals. Hey.")
Maybe hospitals aren't really making more money - and patients aren't really getting any healthier - because progress is inefficient. But sometimes you have to be willing to take a risk to see if you could be even more efficient than you are.
