Overview


Running a hospital or health system in today’s environment is extremely challenging and requires excellence in many critical areas. Maintaining last year’s performance is frequently not enough. We help our clients to challenge their historical performance, then to exceed their previous performance.

One of the central challenges all hospitals and health systems face is how to provide world-class care while managing their scarce resources.

To thrive in the current healthcare environment requires successful implementation.

Length of Stay Management


Higher lengths of stay have become an issue for many providers – from inefficiencies in patient throughput and capacity constraints, healthcare organizations have the opportunity to better manage a patient’s length of stay. To achieve reductions in length of stay, care management, patient flow, and care variation must be addressed. With the identification of operational and clinical constraints within all hospital functions and understanding payor contracts, our team assists clients in reducing costs attributable to excessive lengths of stay as well as freeing up capacity to capture any additional demand.

Clinical Variation Reduction


Standardized patient care aligned with evidence-based practice to ensure safety and high-quality outcomes is a critical component of the mission of all providers. We help our clients reduce variation in their care delivery by working with our client physicians, clinicians, and other allied health professionals to standardize the delivery of care and establishing defined and standardized clinical practices.

Leadership Development
& Training


Leaders learn how to change their practice to transform values into action, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, and risk into rewards. The Claro Healthcare leadership development workshop is both motivating and inspiring to leaders of all levels. Leaders will experience the opportunity to revitalize their leadership practices based on transformational leadership concepts. The 2-day leadership workshop consists of discussions, activities and real case scenarios based on healthcare challenges and offers 13 CNEs.

Pharmacy & 340B Program Optimization


Many hospitals are 340B Program enrollees which allows them to purchase pharmaceuticals at significantly discounted prices for outpatients. Enrolled hospitals can enhance their mission by expanding how they manage their 340B participation.

Supply Chain Management


With low operating margins and limited resources, providers are feeling pressure to reduce and manage their costs. Reducing non-labor costs is more complicated than just seeking lower costs for supplies and services. We help our clients focus on maintaining the same service levels while reducing costs with purchased services, HR benefits, laboratory, pharmacy, medical/surgical supplies, and physician preference items.

Corporate Overhead


Corporate overhead is becoming a larger component of an organization’s cost structure. Truly gaining efficiency from the corporate function is key for systems to be successful.

Labor Productivity


Labor is typically the largest expense for a hospital. It is critical for providers to keep their personnel costs in control and the staff properly utilized and productive. In addition to providing benchmarking services, we work with department leaders to attain the established targets.

We look forward to working with you.
