Health Leaders Media

Conventional wisdom is that cost-cutting is a painful, even futile, way to respond to reduced reimbursements. One can only cut so far before placing sustainability in jeopardy. Nonetheless, healthcare executives are very much focused on reducing the costs of providing care, with 39% saying their cost-cutting programs have resulted in savings of at least 6% every year for the past three years. More than half (56%) say they expect total cost reductions over the next three years to be 6% or more, as well.
