How Successful Organizations Are Addressing Cost Issues With Data

Labor costs are the single largest expense item for most hospitals, often exceeding 60 percent of net patient revenue. Organizations need to manage their labor spend carefully to curb costs enough to keep pace with revenues.

And yet, like most cost-savings strategies, outsourcing carries risks for an organization and isn’t “one size fits all.” Systems that succeed with outsourcing pursue a thoughtful, data-informed approach—one that promises not only lower costs but increased value to their organization and a positive experience for their team members.
