Last week I shared four resolutions that hospitals can make for strategic and profitable growth in 2011. (See the first four resolutions here.) This week,I’m focusing on four more actionable resolutions that healthcare systems can implement immediately.
This set of resolutions is based on how we
work. Most health systems in 2011 have leaner staffs and are challenged to contain costs.
But, the demand for healthcare investment has
not slowed its evolving pace. New procedures,
new healthcare partners and disruptive technology advances have not declined at the same rate as the dollar’s value. It’s time for hospitals to focus on integration, convergence and building an integrated business development platform.
