Financial restructuring


The need to take decisive action to transform your organization’s financial structure can be caused by many institutional and market factors, such as:

 

  • The need to remove cost or reduce financial variability from your operating structure 
  • The need to conserve cash for expansion, renovation or M&A
  • A negative shift in reimbursement funding
  • The need to reduce the cost or increase the value of functional, shared services 

 

Traditional finance management control measures are not able to address many of these larger structural financial challenges.   A strategic partnership approach to technology acquisition and management can help restructure your balance sheet, enable overdue investments in technology, shift risk and move your organization onto a more stable, predictable, sustainable financial path.

Organizational transformation


Significant organizational and cultural transformation is often not optional, but the result of a mandate to achieve improved business results or a requirement to continue operating and providing high-quality care. These mandates for change may include:

 

  • New hospital construction, renovation or reconfiguration
  • Consolidation (i.e., integration of hospitals and care groups into your existing health system or assimilation into a parent group)
  • Implementation of a broad new leadership vision and strategy
  • Rapid change in market and competitive dynamics
  • Strategic shift to new care models or population health strategies

 

A strategic partnership with Philips provides the financial and procurement flexibility and access to multidisciplinary planning and clinical resources to enable you to better plan for and execute major organizational transitions.

Optimization strategy

 

Increasing standardization and reducing variability across a care system can have a significant impact on care delivery today and help an organization transition successfully to value-based care. As health systems focus on achieving enterprise-wide, sustainable improvements, there’s an increasing level of focus on:

 

  • The need to reduce overall costs and improve operational efficiency
  • The desire to increase standardization and reduce variability 
  • The need to optimize care delivery and enhance quality
  • The desire to improve care facilitation and reduce length of stay
  • The need to prepare your organization for population health management

 

Using a proven process founded in continuous improvement, shared accountability and an agile, strategic operational framework means insights are continually integrated into the decision-making process to support mutually identified goals with sustainable, measureable results.

Market position

 

In this dynamic, disruptive and increasingly consumer-driven healthcare landscape, it is essential to establish market parameters and differentiated service strategies that elevate your health system in a meaningful way.  Your market leadership strategy may be informed by various factors:

 

  • A shift in market competition or patient acquisition/leakage rates
  • The desire to show best-in-class innovation and research capabilities
  • The need to provide best-in-class care and protect against technology obsolescence in order to meet the requirements of elite designations (e.g., Level I trauma center)
  • The opportunity to gain new, incentive-based reimbursement funding (e.g., DSRIP)

 

Having access to leading technology, deep clinical expertise and proprietary tools and innovation resources can be a powerful impetus to strengthen your position in the market and enhance the quality and type of care you provide.
