"I agree with the cost reduction plan Mr. Rindler outlines in this book. His strategic approach which includes a specific time frame, 25 clear steps, and mechanisms for accountability has what it takes to produce sustainable results. There are less-structured approaches that might work temporarily, but they do not offer the long-term impact and success of Rindler's systematic strategy." --Alan J. Bleyer, FACHE, President/CEO, Akron General Health
According to author Michael Rindler, every hospital has the ability to reduce its costs by at least 5 percent annually without harming clinical quality or customer service.
Recommended by ACHE, Strategic Cost Reduction: Leading Your Hospital to Success reveals a proven, step-by-step leadership plan for managing costs at all types of hospitals in any location from small rural hospitals to large urban academic medical centers.
With a focus on leadership approaches rather than financial techniques, this book explains how to alleviate the anxiety of cost reduction efforts and engage all managers, physicians, and employees in creating a financially healthy organization. You will learn practical strategies for building a cost-reduction culture, uncovering cost-saving opportunities, promoting accountability at all levels, and monitoring results.
