The hospital sector is characterized by increasing economic pressure. So the costs rise more than the revenues; there is overcapacity in the stationary market, and the investments of the countries in the hospitals are not sufficient. As a result, a significant proportion of hospitals make annual losses.
Hospitals need to address this market pressure with professionalization in all clinical and non-clinical areas, often withholding non-existent best practice knowledge externally. In some cases, cross-organizational cooperation and strategy adjustments are necessary.
A hospital management consulting company helps to develop and implement necessary measures at the following levels.
Strategy: As a rule, the projects are based on an analysis of the organization, the market, the competitors as well as the financial situation of the hospital. For the derivation of strategic actions, the medical service portfolio and the organizational framework conditions are critically analyzed. Taking account of customer requirements, either a reorganization plan is developed, or the potential for a joint venture is determined.
Operational: Improvement of operational leadership to meet the current challenges of the market and increase profits. Also, potentials for the reduction of material costs in procurement will be determined (economies of scale). All operational measures identified in Potential Analysis can then be realized by a project management office.
