Baltimore, MD (July, 2016) — Health Professions Press has published their latest book, Superior Productivity in Healthcare Organizations, Second Edition. Now available in print and e-book format, this revised second edition of the popular guide for healthcare administrators offers more tools to invigorate the productivity of their organizations with long-lasting success.
Written in a supportive, conversational style, author Paul Fogel draws upon his successful experience with more than 70 hospitals to take you step by step through the simple, logical, and powerfully effective approach to increasing staff productivity and also reclaiming lost productivity. With dozens of illustrations, tables, financial models, and case studies, readers can easily grasp the core concepts of measurement, accountability, simplicity, and fairness.
“Paul Fogel’s ability to capture the obvious and explain the treadmill effect many healthcare executives face in managing their largest expense is astonishing,” says Steven Febus, Chief Financial Officer at Pullman Regional Hospital. “I had looked for most of my career for a solution that tied cultural relevance to outcomes without a one size fits all approach, and this book presents a solution that is tailored to our uniqueness.”
Indeed, the guidance to introduce these concepts to your own organization is a key to the effectiveness (and necessity) of Fogel’s approach. As Megan Foster, CEO of Foster Health Consulting puts it, “Paul Fogel gives you the knowledge and, most importantly, the exact plan on how to implement an effective productivity system that works. It’s a must-read for hospital system executives; buy a copy for every manager at your hospital—you won’t regret it!”
Updated to include the most current financial and workforce trends in healthcare services, this edition introduces new measurement methods for workload measures that accurately reflect both volume and patient or service mix. Hospital administrators, physicians, corporate health system staff, financial executives, or hospital or health plan administrators need this practical and enduring guide in their hands and on their shelves!
