On the Front Lines of Action
While uncertainty permeates the healthcare landscape due to the political climate and potential regulatory, funding and reimbursement changes, provider organizations across the country agree that a focus on performance is essential under any future market scenario. To successfully meet current and future market requirements, high performing organizations must achieve and sustain levels of clinical, operational and financial performance that transcend those previously conceived or realized. With the stakes higher than ever before, past incremental approaches to performance improvement will not be sufficient to achieve the transformational change that is needed to succeed moving forward. Clinical and operating models must be fundamentally redesigned based on leading practice; and next-generation, sustainable approaches to performance improvement must be woven into the fabric of the organization’s culture.
At The Chartis Group, we work shoulder to shoulder with our clients to materially improve key quality outcomes, increase revenue, increase patient engagement and access, enhance patient and caregiver experience and achieve greater cost effectiveness. We support those organizations looking to more sustainably address longstanding performance issues as well as those seeking the next frontier in performance improvement. Key advisory services include:
Our approach is founded on the belief that transformation is achieved through the fundamental redesign of clinical and operating models based on leading practice and by enhancing the organization’s underlying capabilities to identify, address and sustain improvement. We unite clinical and administrative leaders around a common vision for advanced performance and engage clinicians and front line staff in the change process to enable sustained, transformative improvement across each dimension of cost, revenue, quality and experience.
