Louisiana Healthcare Consulting is Improving Patient Satisfaction in Hospitals

Due to the implementation of MACRA, Louisiana hospitals are mandated to adjust their operations. Many of the changes mandated by MACRA have added costs to the bottom lines of healthcare facilities, placing more strain on an already stressed budget. Louisiana ranks 8th in the nation related to the number of people in their state with a diabetes diagnosis.  Unfortunately, many hospitals are struggling to find ways to finance operations, while still providing optimal care for their ailing and uninsured populations.

Reducing Costs While Keeping the Focus on Patient Care

Soriant’s Louisiana Healthcare Consulting team takes a unique approach to helping hospitals and hospital systems satisfy their bottom line while increasing their levels of patient satisfaction. They have worked with hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States to assess cost savings opportunities within a hospital or healthcare system.  The team at Soriant has achieved a 100% success rate relevant to projected savings. With diverse backgrounds, we can pinpoint and implement best practices, while developing customized solutions that work for individual hospitals.

Helping Facilities Reduce Operating Expenses in Food & Nutrition Departments

FNS Department management teams partner with Soriant consultants, who provide clarity regarding preparation of quality meals with a minimum spend. Many of our consultants have expertise as healthcare “contractor” or “vendor” executives, as well as dietary department managers, and can provide each client with a skilled assessment of cost reduction strategies for their department. An individualized solution is provided for each client, designed to increase customer satisfaction scores, while minimizing spend in other areas, and increasing sales revenue.

A New Direction for Linen Departments

Laundry & Linen departments in hospitals are often placed on the back burner.  Healthcare management is now realizing that this department is extremely important when it comes to patient satisfaction and infection management.  Cleanliness of linens greatly decreases high contagion rates and hospital borne illnesses. Linen departments in healthcare facilities tend to have large budgets. Soriant professionals help hospitals identify ways they can reduce costs in Linen & Laundry departments by negotiating contracts, enhancing staffing productivity, and working with management teams to implement long and short-term goals to help the department reach its targeted fiscal priorities.

Modernizing Environmental Services Departments

Healthcare consumers often judge the type of care administered by a hospital, based on appearance and cleanliness. Environmental Services teams are only as good as the equipment and products they use. Proper labor, supplies, and procedures are necessary to keep the general population safe, and to avoid the spread of diseases. Soriant Professionals assist EVS departments by helping them improve their productivity and reduce hospital expenses. Our consultants can negotiate equipment contracts, help EVS departments find new supply vendors, and develop cost efficient and creative ways to remain in compliance with regulatory standards.
