Alabama Healthcare Consultants Collaborate to Streamline Bottom Line, While Increasing Patient Satisfaction
Hospitals and healthcare systems in Alabama, and across the nation, are making extensive operational adjustments as the implementation of MACRA continues to alter the direction of healthcare. In addition to MACRA changes, Alabama medical facilities struggle to combat soaring diabetes statistics and excessive costs associated with the disease. The state of Alabama ranks number two in the nation in terms of the number of people in the state living with the disease.

Soriant Helps Facilities Protect Their Patients and Their Bottom Line
The Linen department in a medical facility is one of the most expensive departments to manage. It is also a department that is often placed on the back burner. Hospital administrators and other decision makers are beginning to recognize that the appearance of linen in their facilities can play a major role when it comes to patient satisfaction. Linens must also be kept clean to control infections and hospital borne illnesses. Soriant professionals partner with medical facilities to identify ways they can lower the costs of their Laundry & Linen departments. Our consultants utilize several approaches and may include one or more of the following:
- Negotiate contracts while making the client’s financial interests a priority
- Enhance staffing productivity
- Take advantage of large-volume discounts offered by contractors
- Implement long and short-term goals to help clients achieve industry benchmarks
- Reduce textile and supply charges
Environmental Services Determine How Facilities Are Viewed in Their Communities
When patients and their visitors enter medical facilities in Alabama, their impression of how patients are treated and cared for is determined by the appearance and cleanliness of the facility. The labor and supplies needed to ensure the safety of persons entering the facility doors is expensive. The Soriant team of specialists collaborate with Environmental Services departments to reduce operating costs, and improve productivity by:
- Bargaining equipment contracts
- Implementing green strategies and solutions
- Helping them locate new supply vendors & manage the bid process
- Finding creative and cost-efficient methods, allowing for adherence to regulatory standards
