Accountable Care Act
Strategic Workforce Management

The workforce is the most expensive budgetary item and most impactful element for reimbursement revenue in this era of Value, Performance and Outcome Based Care.

Strategic Workforce Management for Healthcare Executives

Up to this point, Strategic Workforce Management (“SWFM”) has largely been a theoretical conversation about what the workforce could be by a handful of authors in the HR space. The focus is primarily along soft issues such as Competencies versus Skills, Leadership versus Workforce Management and engagement versus productivity. Whereas HealthViZion believes these areas hold promise, the results are not scientifically tangible and will not stand-up to the scientific rigor, especially since most data being used is survey based with the inherent prejudices therein.

HealthViZion views SWFM similar to Supply Chain Management of Labor.  HealthViZion’s CEO invented and implemented the 1st Labor Supply Chain at Fortune 15 Valero Energy beginning in 2003,  Hilbert’s team won 2x more awards from 2005-2007 in SWFM than any other team in industry history.
Coming from Supply Chain Management software, this was not rocket science to Hilbert. It was simply applying tried, trued and standardized mission critical software to the Labor force. In no way was this “Big Brother Watching over You,” type solutions. It was basic Supply and Demand, Six Sigma type process and improvement with both macro and micro level “actionable” business intelligence. Hospitals do not function without Supply Chains. Yet they attempt to manage their most expensive budgetary item and most impactful element for reimbursement revenue in this era of Value, Performance and Outcome based care – the workforce.
Over the past eight years, HealthViZion consulted with Hospital executives asking them the tough questions about:
  • What keeps them up at night worried about their workforce?
  • What intelligence about their workforce would empower their jobs?
  • What intelligence they don’t have (hidden knowledge and hidden correlation relationships) thatt would most make their job better?
