In order to identify important operational and financial indicators, it is essential to review historical and current data for competitors as well as industry leaders. This creates a framework for future hospital projections and strategies. American Healthcare Solutions’ Benchmarking Services all follow a systematic approach to evaluating, comparing and adopting industry practices. By following Best Practice standards, hospitals are able to reduce cost while simultaneously enhancing quality.
Through a consistent process of measuring services and comparing benchmarks, AHS enables clients to improve upon patient care delivery models and overall operational efficiency. Careful data analysis provides a set of realistic goals that are designed to promote cost savings, increase market share, and result in a greater patient experience.
|Financial & Operational||Organizational benchmarks are developed against industry leaders and regional competitors based on 80 common financial and operational indicators.|
|Hospital Trend Reports||A three year hospital trend analysis based on DRG and/or MDC is completed and benchmarks are established against regional competitors.|
|Hospital Performance & Strengths Reports||Pricing patterns are examined and detailed information on average reimbursement and cost per case are provided. This analysis determines the strengths of an organization compared to regional peers.|
|DRG Coding Analysis||Facility performance is compared to local, regional, and industrial peers. DRGs with coding anomalies are identified by focusing on DRG pairings.|
AHS Benchmarking Services can be applied to many facets of an organization including:
Capital Structure Ratios
Asset Efficiency Ratios
Length of Stay Indicators
Payer Mix Indicators
