Labor costs encompass nearly 60 percent of the typical healthcare budget and are growing faster than healthcare systems can afford. COVID-19 responses only exacerbated this financial pressure. Controlling escalating labor costs means eliminating waste and using data to find where budgeted staffing hours exceed or fall short of patient needs. Most organizations have the wrong tools to understand labor demands and instead try to guess future patient volumes and staffing needs by using retrospective data that lacks timeliness.
The Health Catalyst PowerLabor application leverages augmented intelligence (AI)-powered forecasting capabilities to deliver accurate labor data to operational leaders. With timely workforce insight, health systems can close the gap between staff budgeting and future patient volumes, control labor expenses, and track progress toward budget and staffing targets.
