A majority of hospital executives recognize patient leakage as a problem that’s costing their respective systems, but few have taken steps to properly address it.
- Reducing patient leakage should be a top priority for CFOs in 2019, according to Scott Vold, CEO of Fibroblast.
- The survey found most executives recognize the challenge of patient leakage but few have done anything to stem its effects.
- Nearly one in five executives report losing more than 20% on patient leakage annually.
More than four out of five healthcare executives report that patient leakage is a serious problem facing their organizations, though not many have implemented solutions to curb the dilemma, according to a new survey from Fibroblast, commissioned by Sage Growth Partners.
