Organizational Assessment and Redesign
Involved a detailed organization assessment and organizational redesign to reduce costs and increase effectiveness. The methodology focused on six dimensions of the hospital including: organization and governance structure, economic modeling, patient care process, information management, change readiness, and clinical resource management. Each of these dimensions was evaluated using hospital data, staff input, bench marking, and process mapping. Alternative models for patient care delivery were evaluated.

A comprehensive plan for implementing care teams and clinical programs, based on patient populations, was developed. In addition, many hospital wide processes, eg: admissions, patient discharge, stores replenishment, and diagnostic processes were re-engineered.
