Finding & Fixing the Issues

Our data gathering, comparison, and analysis along with our tools and technologies aim to identify the root causes of the issues facing Healthcare providers.

In St. Peter’s case, the primary issues were labor waste and healthcare efficiency.

Issue #1 – Labor Waste

RVH Solutions identified and helped correct 6 major factors contributing to labor waste:

  • Scheduling Complexities
  • Workforce Behaviors
  • Productivity Confusion
  • Workforce Inflexibility
  • Clinical Availability
  • Excess/Avoidable Days

Issue #2 – Healthcare Efficiency

St. Peter’s wanted to improve overall healthcare efficiency by reducing patients’ length-of-stay (LOS) and gain the associated labor value that improving healthcare efficiency represents.

  • Reduced LOS by an average of 1.5 days across 4th Floor Units
  • Number of avoidable re-admissions significantly reduced
  • Staff re-energized, improved job satisfaction
  • 100% compliant with Medicare’s Important Message
