The “triple aim” in healthcare refers to the drive to increase quality, improve the customer experience, and lower cost. For healthcare managers, this triple aim may seem more like three bull’s-eyes painted on our backs!
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), have released thousands of pages of new and proposed regulations regarding hospital services, physician payment, and long-term care services. These changes are dramatic.
In the midst of this, healthcare providers are experiencing significant declines in demand and utilization. Hospital occupancy, skilled nursing occupancy, and other measures of health care utilization are lower than in years past.
Labor costs and economic pressures are beginning to feel like it’s the 1980s, rather than 2017. With restrictions to payments, and declining occupancy & utilization, increasing labor and supply costs could be the last straw on many a camel’s back.
In spite of these three bull’s-eyes, healthcare managers are expected to carry on, demonstrate leadership, and manage effectively in the midst of this turbulence.
Tote that Barge, Lift that Bale
Taking a break from the relentless stress is not only a good idea, it may be essential to continued health and sustainability for many managers.
