About This Webconference
The surgical service line has long been a top performer in profitability—accounting for only 11% of hospitals’ volumes, but generating 40% of profits, so it’s no surprise that many hospital executives are renewing their focus on the OR in an effort to firm up margins. But as payments face increasing pressure, and surgical volumes are predicted to slow, competition for surgery market share is heating up.
To increase their competitive position in the market, hospital leaders need to assess their surgical service line for opportunities to improve efficiency—everything from site utilization and operations to governance and supply costs. In this 30-minute webconference, John Johnston, Senior Vice President and Sharon Ward, Senior Director of Advisory Board Consulting, will share their work with health system executives leading efforts to optimize their surgical service line, improve their competitive position, and most of all—strengthen margins.
