According to Premier, by utilizing its LaborConnect tool, the healthcare system realized cost savings through onsite performance improvement and labor benchmarking.
As a part of the program, a Premier Performance Partner provided six days per month of consulting services and helped install OperationsAdvisor, its Web-based labor benchmarking solution. In addition, the Performance Partner also trained managers and directors to new products and reports; monitored “watch lists” to help underperformers develop action plans; and incorporated FY2009 labor benchmarks into the FY2010 labor budget process using OA, it says.
