HEALTH SERVICES PLANNING GROUP
HSPG is aware that clinical, educational and research institutions, and professional staff have the common goal of good health services. Organization and control ensure access and safety for all patients needing care. Providers should focus educational and direct care programs and environmental, behavioral, and support functions with advanced diagnosis and treatment services.
HSPG recognizes that patients from birth to senior age are best served by enhancing wellness through behavior and emotional guidance, as well as medical and scientific technology. Healthcare providers must also take active account of the health needs of the broader community where their patients live and work.
Transitions and Changing
HSPG assists clients in making the transitions and service adjustments to keep pace with operational costs and quality of the care. Changes will include the range of acute and outpatient services in each medical and surgical program and the volume, age and sex of patients. Only comprehensive planning and operational efficiency will ensure high quality patient care and positive financial results.
HSPG helps clients plan and implement innovative ways for clinical and support staff to achieve financial and quality objectives. Key to that achievement is to model ideas in computer simulations of work steps, locations and timeframes. This method allows for quick comparisons and alternative choices for patient care and related services.
Medical, Social and Economic Trends
Planning for healthcare institutions must analyze the changing relationships of inpatient or outpatient services and the sources and amounts in care and supply payments. Medical and social trends, along with market indicators of capital investment funds, offer contrasting incentives and hindrances for future plans for facilities expansion and equipment purchases.
