We’ve Got Some
Bright Ideas for
Financial and Leadership Performance.
All of our consulting engagements are based on achieving specific deliverables and positive outcomes. One of the most frequently requested services is to improve nursing financial performance consistent with both patient care needs and financial objectives. On-site and distance mentoring and coaching services are also provided by Kirby Bates Associates consultants. Typically, the overall goals of these projects are...
- to develop credible nursing service budgets based on national productivity benchmarks;
- to implement variable budgets that respond to changes in patient volumes; and
- to implement budget monitoring tools and variance reporting to ensure budget compliance.
We achieve these goals by doing the following:
Introducing easy-to-use budget development, implementation and monitoring tools;
Developing direct patient care hours and staff mix targets based on national and local benchmarks;
Providing front line managers and directors with the education and tools necessary to ensure budget compliance and/or appropriate variance reporting;
Offering coaching and mentoring services that provide an unbiased approach and absolute confidentiality. These services can be a tremendous resource for exploring new ideas, or discussing how to deal with challenging problems encountered by new or seasoned nursing leaders; and,
Providing consulting services focused on specific operational issues aimed at helping nursing executives improve the functionality and financial performance of their areas of responsibility.
As former nurse leaders, our consultants’ experience makes them uniquely qualified to help your organization. Contact us for more information at 610-667-1800, or visit us online at www.kirbybates.com.
