Patient-centered staffing isn’t a luxury — it’s essential to the financial health of an organization.

Finance and nursing executives face many uncertainties in today’s healthcare environment, but one factor still under their control is the cost of labor. An investment in labor is an investment in quality, but like any other transaction, hospital leaders want the best return from their dollars. Acuity-based staffing is a valuable tool for maximizing those returns because it ensures the right staff are in the right place at the right time – essential goals as healthcare leaders face a worsening nursing shortage and continuing demands to do more with less.
In this fast-paced, one-hour webinar, a leading researcher will share the latest data related to the financial impact of acuity-based staffing. The panel will explain how a partnership between the two is effective in implementing acuity-based staffing so that it yields significant financial benefits for your organization. This is an ideal webinar for both CFOs and CNOs to attend.
We will present a 1-hour webinar highlighting the importance of patient-centered, data-driven workforce management in healthcare settings. Topics covered will include:
- Why you need to manage workforce data
- How we successfully implemented patient-centered, data-driven workforce management
- Having the business case conversation for workforce management
— as well as next steps and a live Q & A session with the presenters.
