Recently, Owens & Minor enlisted RDA’s support at a leading multi-facility 800 bed teaching system in the Southwest to resolve some challenges that had arisen from recent expansions and turnover in key positions. The health system needed support in re-establishing a sound platform of operational excellence including daily workforce leadership, technology integration, and performance measurement/management.
RDA’s methodology with this engagement was an executive supported, ground up approach. The first phase was assessment, seeking to understand and then articulate root causes to key operational performance issues.
Once a root cause analysis was completed, the next phase focused on alignment of resources, technology, and initiatives to the hospital’s stated strategic goals. Great care was taken at this point to ensure planned actions truly resolved root challenges and were still aligned with the larger strategy.
