EdgeRECR enables healthcare organizations to stretch their thinking toward novel solutions for revenue enhancement and cost reduction. The EdgilityRECR program utilizes a combination of smart operations theory and application along with design-thinking practices to identify, solve and hardwire better operating models.
Cost-cutting and revenue-generating initiatives, large and small, require precision. Edgility’s Revenue Enhancement and Cost Reduction brings scalpel-like precision to enhancing revenue and reducing costs.
Then: Cost management was all the rage. Consulting companies focused on benchmarking, resulting in recommendations for generic slash-and-burn cost-cutting measures.
Now: Health Systems are looking to be strategic in their cost restructuring efforts. RECR, through a Smart Operations platform provides just such an opportunity.
For example, EdgilityRECR was able to identify level of care mismatches and orchestrated the ‘levers of action’ to realize a total of $1.23 million savings in telemetry at a Cleveland based Health System in just 12 months.
The EdgeRECR Cycle
Analyze relevant and actionable information across systems to create value elements specifically for providers, support services, and administrators.
Design and Implement
EdgeRECR cuts across the care continuum for optimal value alignment. The following examples have been successfully tested with a specific value focus.
Access and Arrival Management - Revenue Enhancement
Level of Care – Revenue Enhancement
While EdgeRECR themes create horizontal alignment along the continuum of care, transformation themes provide a framework to impact outcomes. The following examples have been successfully applied.
CI focuses on creating organizational "stickiness" around the transformation elements. Through the Smart Operations Center, physicians and nurses can focus on clinical outcomes, quality, and patient experience, while administrators can focus on optimization of operations.
