Workforce Strategies that Don’t Sacrifice Patient Care Quality

Over the nearly 20 years I’ve worked at API Healthcare, I’ve had the lucky opportunity to talk with many, many clients about their challenges and successes with workforce management. It seems that each of our clients has a unique story.  They are so savvy, thinking about new ways to manage and navigate as the healthcare industry undergoes monumental changes.

That’s certainly true for the team at Mary Washington Healthcare. They have been proactive, recognizing that they needed to focus on making operational changes to address the changing dynamics in healthcare. They created several ‘Affordable Healthcare Initiatives’ to look at the workforce and identify how to do things differently without sacrificing quality.

On the front line of those changes is Meg Pemberton, Director of Capacity Management at Mary Washington Healthcare. I initially tracked Meg down at the API Healthcare User Group Conference because I was intrigued by her job title. It turns out that the efforts that Meg has been a part of are just as fascinating as her title.

The workforce management initiative at Mary Washington has been focused on providing data transparency so that they can make better staffing decisions, for both their clinical staff and then looking beyond to non-clinical staff as well. They’ve broken down silos so that they can staff better across their entire organization.

Meg sums up their results, explaining, “We now have insight into the complete skill mix of available staff across both hospitals and the freestanding emergency department, something we didn’t have before. As a result we are able to better match qualified staff with patient needs, and we can better prioritize available internal resources instead of utilizing premium external labor.”
