how variation in orthopedics is impacting your top and bottom line
Controlling variation in pre- and post-op care is critical to driving growth and margins, but few know how to do it.
Force's VP of Client Development discussed what he's seen go wrong as organizations redesign their service lines to control variation in pre- and post-op care and how innovators can avoid the same mistakes. Some of the key challenges he touches on are:
Gathering evidence to drive decision making
Standardizing patient communication and education
Controlling cost and inefficiencies in care navigation

Drivers of High Patient Satisfaction: What is the Correlation Between Functional Outcomes and Patient Satisfaction?
Patient satisfaction is one of the highest weighted measures of performance.
This is a particular challenge in orthopedics where despite increasingly effective procedures, there is variation in patient satisfaction.
View our white paper to find out what kind of patient experience correlates with high satisfaction.
