Operational and management services

Facilities Management

As healthcare facilities are one of the most complex buildings, a well run facility has impact on the delivery of all hospital programs and ensures that there is no or minimum downtime to clinical operations. Operation of healthcare facilities requires an effective running system of management to keep facilities at the highest level of operation and to avoid down time.

 

Facility Management takes care of maintenance, fire & safety, security and applies procedures to optimize the costs for FM at the same time. Facilities management is designed to ensure corporate and regulatory compliance and the proper operation of all aspects of the building to create an optimal, safe and cost effective environment for the patient and staff on site.

Clinical and non-clinical reorganization

The challenges in the healthcare industry force provider and operators of health serivces to an organizational change from a department-focused to a process- and patient flow oriented organization. The optimal utilization of resources is crucial for operations. This leads to an increased pressure on process-oriented patient control in regards to an integrated, holistic and comprehensive management of clinical and non-clinical areas. 

 

Typical reorganization problem statements

  • How can we organize a process- and patient-oriented operation to ensure an efficient service provision?
  • How can we organize our non-core competencies in a cost-optimal manner and simultaneously provide ideal support for our clinical core areas?
