Open Up a Whole New World of Savings You Didn’t Know Existed!

We would all like to think that we have total control over all of our non-labor expenses, yet I can say emphatically that this just isn’t true. One big expense category that has been universally neglected is purchased services. It’s not even on most healthcare organizations’ radar screens.

Yes, this statement is factually true! We, as an industry, haven’t been managing and controlling our purchased services contracts, from elevator maintenance to transcription services. Countless hospitals, systems, and IDNs have service contracts with a dollar value equal to or greater than their supply expenses.

The good news is that we have found this category of purchase to be a new, unclaimed gold mine for healthcare organizations. To ensure your healthcare organization’s continuing financial health, you must pay more attention to these elusive expenses.

Best of all, new breakthrough concepts will help you move forward to even more savings in this category of purchase than you thought possible!

Robert W. Yokl, Program Leader

P.S. Most hospitals’ or systems’ purchased services are ripe for saving money now, but you need to attack them strategically or you will find yourself generating a lot of activity but yielding little savings in this category of purchase.
