Medicare Inpatient Profitability in US Hospitals

Join Our Mailing List

The Impending Need for Cost-Efficiency

[By Objective Health]

Medicare patients often account for the largest proportion of inpatient volume for an average US hospital. With the exception of outlier cases, Medicare inpatient services are adjusted for wage rates and reimbursed as a single predetermined payment across the country.

Over the next few years, Medicare is expected to substantially reduce growth in payment rates, thereby pressuring hospitals to become more cost-efficient.

Medicare OH

Assessment

This infographic highlights the need for hospitals to manage costs, showing that there is a wide variation in Medicare inpatient profit across US hospitals, which is primarily driven by differences in Medicare cost per case.

The Impact Of The U.S. Recession On Hospitals

Join Our Mailing List

Drivers of Decline

Commercially insured scheduled admissions are the largest contributor to inpatient margins for the average US hospital. During the US recession (2009-2011), volumes in this segment declined. There were two primary drivers of this decline.

####

Recession Impact

Dual Causes

First, commercial insurance coverage decreased, stemming from unemployment and underemployment. This is expected to reverse and rebound as the economy recovers and as healthcare reform is implemented.

Second, even among those who retained coverage, utilization of inpatient services decreased as patients delayed or forewent elective and preventative care. This was influenced by a range of economic factors, including reduced household incomes, higher co-pays, and a reduced ability to leave work for medical care, as well as factor unrelated to the recession, such as a shift to outpatient management of disease.

More: Are Cost Estimates Leading To The Wrong Decisions in US Hospitals?

Assessment

It is unclear whether this second driver will diminish fully as the economy recovers. A slow recovery – or one that fails to see volumes to return to pre-recession levels – suggests that hospitals may need to refocus their strategies on service lines and segments that have historically been less attractive.

Should Dr. Marcinko Speak in Malaysia?

Join Our Mailing List

Information Sought on Laures International

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™

[Editor-in-Chief]

Recently, I was pleased to be invited to speak at a Regional Public Workshop [RPW] for the healthcare clients of Laures International, in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I don’t know if  I’m personally that famous, infamous, or our newest book is just garnering rave reviews.

“Healthcare Organizations” [Management Strategies, Tools, Techniques and Case Studies].

In-Process from: (c) Productivity Press 2012 http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439879900

The Firm

Briefly, Laures International is touted to be at the forefront in organizing strategic business intelligence in Asia and Middle East with headquarters in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. As of 2011, they’ve supposedly held events in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, China and Dubai.

Goals and Objectives

Representatives state their goal is to provide world class events with an uncompromising attitude towards quality. The aim of Laures is to provide a platform for delegates to be involved in discussions and case studies to enhance their understanding and to apply what they learn immediately to improve their performance when they return to their respective workplace. A worthy goal!

Offices

+603 – 78034444

www.LauresInternational.com

Assessment

Now, I like to speak and learn, and have done so frequently around the country and in Eastern Europe the last three decades. Usually, my presentations are for medical societies, financial services groups, pharmaceutical companies or other consulting firms.

But, Laures is heretofore unknown to me, and other than their contact and website review, I am concerned about their credibility. With all due respect, I’d frankly hate to be duped or ultimately “stuck” in Kuala Lumpur!

Conclusion

Your thoughts and comments on this ME-P are appreciated. Is Laures International credible? Is the region safe? I’d love to experience its’ culture, people, food, colleagues, sights, sounds and sites. Accept or not? Your ME-P crowd sourced experience and wisdom is appreciated.
