How to Drive Behavioral Changes that Reduce Variability in Care

Healthcare spending is growing fast around the globe, yet it's getting harder for providers like you to stay afloat. Rising healthcare costs are putting pressure on the entire industry. At the same time, many hospital systems are seeing revenue slow, or even decline. That’s a daunting sustainability gap—and it’s threatening to push you into survival mode.

You’ve likely developed programs to address this gap. But even if you’ve tightened up your revenue cycle management—even if you’ve contained costs by streamlining operations and reducing staff and adding technology—you won’t be able to close this gap unless you address a key challenge – variability in care.

You will not be able to address clinical variability if you focus on reducing costs alone. At some point you must begin to address the clinical side of the business. This is a huge challenge because clinical care is rooted in a series of behaviors that are incredibly difficult to change—even when you want to do the right thing. But it’s not impossible. The key is to make people trust and remember what you want them to do.
