Infographic: 4 Ways that Poor Physician Scheduling Practices Undercut Hospital Revenue
Physician scheduling is more than administrative. Scheduling efficiencies improve your hospital’s bottom line, while poor processes rob you of revenue.
MDsyncNET has developed an infographic to highlight four ways that poor physician scheduling practices undercut hospital revenue:
- When a surgeon cancellation isn’t communicated in a timely manner, the resulting empty operating room can result in $10,000 in lost revenue.
- When staff can’t reach the on-call specialist, the patient may spend extra time in the hospital. That increased length of stay can cost $6,600.
- When the cardiologist isn’t at the scheduler’s fingertips, the ambulance may divert to a competitor’s hospital. Cardiology leakage can cost $14,000.
- Inefficient scheduling practices mean that physicians’ offices book procedures with outside specialists. For example, orthopedic leakage can cost between $11,000 and $20,000.
How do you stop the leakage and improve your hospital’s bottom line? Cloud-based scheduling software that pays for itself.
