Delivering accurate volume, cost, and profitability reporting across clinical service lines can drastically improve long-range strategic planning and short-term tactical planning. LifePoint Hospitals wanted to know which service lines to grow and expand and where there was opportunity for operational changes or process improvement to drive hard-dollar savings.
