As the healthcare landscape is swiftly changing, hospitals face an array of operational, financial, and clinical challenges. The recently published American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) annual survey polled community hospital CEOs asking them to rank 11 critical issues in order of their level of concern. The results indicate that workforce concerns, financial matters, and behavioral health challenges rose to the top as the most pressing issues for hospital CEOs.
In this white paper from Dimensional Insight, we recognise many of the same issues faced by executives in our own hospitals. Even though the American healthcare model is different from the sector in Ireland, and different again in the UK, we see that data is the cornerstone of investigation and how crucial it is in helping to solve similar issues that are faced by all in these challenging times.
