Performance Improvement and Project Management
The healthcare industry is moving aggressively to meet the challenges of the marketplace. These changes were set in motion by a variety of factors, including the call for more affordable healthcare, a reversal of the trend in U.S. healthcare performance in relation to other countries, quality concerns, the need for greater technology and data sharing, and the rising number of uninsured. Recent legislative changes have accelerated the pace of change, impacting payment policies, organization and infrastructure, public health, and other key areas. Healthcare organizations will be challenged to retool to keep pace with pending changes. How will your organization change to compete?
Freed Maxick Healthcare can work with your organization to achieve performance improvement and transform your organization for success in the wake of healthcare reform.
