Simpler Surgeries, Complex Market
"Surgery isn't always thought of as a traditional service line. Instead, it's often considered a functional department or viewed from the perspective of the many surgical subspecialties. But the multidisciplinary nature of surgical services and the need for a consolidated management structure make it a prime candidate for a service line management approach," says Kevin Kennedy, principal with ECG Management Consultants. "Organizations need to constantly reevaluate how their surgical services are organized in order to improve operational efficiencies and meet strategic goals."
"Structure matters because shortages of providers are forcing organizations to do more with less. Specifically, there's a need for more anesthesiologists nationwide, and the supply-demand dynamic is driving up compensation levels and making competition fierce," says Kennedy. - Kevin Kennedy, Principal
