Omaha, NE – August 12, 2014 – Penn State Hershey Medical Group has saved more than $800,000 in one year since implementing Avantas’ consulting services and healthcare enterprise labor management solutions.
In March 2013, Penn State Hershey leveraged Avantas’ HELM® (healthcare enterprise labor management) methodology to increase transparency, visibility and standardization of staffing needs via a variable staffing model, resource sharing across more than 50 clinics, and centralized resource management.
The Medical Group also implemented Avantas’ Smart Square® scheduling technology to create a transparent, cost-effective and repeatable process to leverage labor resources across the enterprise.
In the press release, Sherri Luchs, founding Chief Administrative Officer for the Penn State Hershey Medical Group, states, “We knew that our workforce was one of our most valuable resources, but we needed a way to standardize our scheduling policies to create efficiencies across all practice sites. Working with Avantas, we implemented best practices and redesigned our labor management strategy not only to achieve savings but to increase our staffing flexibility to meet fluctuating patient demand.”
