Michigan Hospital Saves $4M with Premier's Labor Management Technology

Crittenton Hospital Medical Center (CHMC), a 290-bed hospital in Rochester, Mich., saved more than $4 million with the Charlotte, N.C.-based Premier healthcare alliance’s LaborConnect labor management program.

Health reform’s proposed reimbursement cuts are a severe threat to hospitals where more than 60 percent of hospital expenses are in labor. CHMC operates in a dynamic and competitive environment where most hospital workers are unionized, so an effective labor management program is a necessity.

CHMC joined the more than 500 hospitals that use LaborConnect’s OperationsAdvisor productivity and benchmarking solution four and a half years ago. Over three years, CHMC saved more than $4 million in labor expenses. OperationsAdvisor is the only Web-based, total labor management solution that fully integrates a productivity measurement system with quarterly benchmarking. Hospital members of LaborConnect saved more than $120 million last year.
