Four Things That Keep Healthcare Executives Up at Night
The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), an international professional society of more than 30,000 healthcare executives who lead hospitals and other healthcare organizations, has conducted a survey for the past several years to determine what execs feel are the top issues affecting healthcare and causing them the most “pain.”
According to the most recent survey by ACHE, the C-suite is challenged primarily by financial concerns; healthcare reform; government mandates driving that reform; and patient safety and quality. Financial challenges have traditionally led the list of concerns, with reimbursement, funding cuts and increasing staff and supply costs mentioned most often within this “sub-category.” But with shifts in the healthcare landscape over the past several years, healthcare reform and legislation, as well as patient safety and quality challenges, have come to the forefront.
While many rules and expectations are set, other specific impacts have yet to be determined. In this briefing, we’ll review several things that can be done to be prepared, stay ahead of the curve and be able to rest better in relation to financial challenges, healthcare reform, government mandates and quality and patient safety.
