Hit Your Triple Aim Targets with Workforce Management

Event Date: Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at 1:00 PM CDT/ 2:00 PM EDT

The US health care system is the most costly in the world, accounting for 17% of the gross domestic product with estimates to grow to nearly 20% by 2020*. For this reason hospitals are undertaking initiatives that reduce costs while increasing the quality of patient care delivered. Your greatest asset during this time of accelerated industry change is your workforce. You already have the power to succeed – it is in the experience and talent of your skilled employees and caregivers. By using the right tools to eliminate complex manual processes, to increase visibility for managers, and to engage your employees in innovation, you will give your skilled caregivers more time to care for patients at the bedside, and ensure success in a value-based health care delivery model. Join us for this webinar to find out how this leading organization has embedded its workforce management solution into the organizations’ culture to support its Triple Aim goals.
