Feb 24, 2010 (04:02 PM EST)


ELM GROVE, Wis., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- A new blog based on the long-standing axiom quality first, finances follow has just debuted at http://hospital-leader.com. The blog is being written by hospital leader Mark Brodeur, FACHE, a former CEO for community hospitals in Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma. In light of the new Pay for Performance Mandates, known more commonly as P4P, the new blog should prove to be extremely relevant to those CEOs who might be struggling with the costs associated with improving quality of care. Brodeur will explain in his blog why alternative efforts such as cost cutting and maximizing revenue are minimally helpful in improving finances and are also short-lived.

In upcoming blogs, Brodeur will cite specific ways an institution can improve the quality of its services and will give specific performance targets that CEOs should be setting for their hospitals. Blogs include: The Key Role of Your Hospital's Emergency Department, Processes of a Highly Functioning Emergency Department, Improving Staff Productivity in Your Emergency Department, Building New Business in Your Emergency Department, The Art of Making Sustainable Change and Improving Patient Throughput in Your Emergency Department.
