Workforce management and the pursuit of productivity have formed a consistent pain point for hospitals for several years. The Affordable Care Act has only exacerbated the problem, increasing the demand on providers as the number of insured grows and the bar continues to rise on quality of care. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Council survey, workforce productivity and acuity-based staffing will continue to be top priorities this year. Karlene Kerfoot, PhD, chief clinical integration officer at API Healthcare, says the survey results indicate a shift taking place as workforce management initiatives are expected to deliver more than reduced labor costs.
As the healthcare industry shifts focus from volume to value, standardization is needed to accurately benchmark labor resource utilization. This is the premise of a survey conducted by HealthLeaders Media and sponsored by Kronos.
What constitutes direct patient care? Hands-on patient assessment, administering medications, and performing procedures clearly top the list. But can other activities be considered direct care too—even those not conducted in a patient’s presence?

- Which of the following actions are considered direct patient care in your organization?
- Which of the following actions are considered indirect patient care in your organization?

A recent Health Leaders survey sheds light on the top 5 workforce initiatives healthcare executives across the country are using for successful quality of care and labor cost improvements. Learn how these leading strategies can help your hospital.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.
