Industry Challenge PRP Solution
Government reforms are driving more consumers into the healthcare system. In advance, healthcare organizations are looking for ways to streamline costs. PRP operates with flexibility and transparency to understand each individual expense and create solutions that can be measured and verified.
Many medical systems are focused on growth yet with revenue and charitable contributions down, competition for patient census is fierce. Medical staff, marketing resources and other cost centers have been trimmed as a result, making growth more challenging. PRP can free financial resources that healthcare organizations can use to grow demand. Our contributions often help fund growth initiatives through savings deliverables.
Healthcare organizations are steeped in regulation and complexities, often creating cultures slow to change. PRP can relate savings to organizational initiatives to help internal stakeholders understand the value of each savings activity in terms they can understand and adopt readily.
Healthcare organizations employe limited staff loaded with multiple responsibilities, making it challenging to prioritize general and administrative (G&A) expense reduction projects. Greater emphasis is placed on direct spend expenses, most notably medical spend. PRP reviews a wide range of G&A spends within your organization to maximize savings.
