Difficulty in surgery conversions and mapping of counselor performance

As per calculations, eye surgeries top in revenue contribution to an eye hospital. But due to a lack of process-driven counseling, counselors usually find difficulty in attaining targeted surgery conversions. The issue pertains to timely communication of packages, follow-up of surgery postponed, and interested patients. The hospital lacks methodologies to assess counselor performance.

Untapped revenue opportunities in eye hospital pharmacy & optical sales.

Pharmacy and optical sales are 2 of important revenue centers that are often untapped for more revenue opportunities for eye hospital cost savings.

Eye hospital Patient wait time, Long staff work hours 

Lack of a system that lacks operational excellence increase patient wait times across various process points and results in dissatisfaction. Usually, administrative Staff has to work extra hours out of their normal timings to finish their daily activities like report preparations.

Increased optometry errors, patient safety questioned

Usually, as per our analysis across clients, 25 – 30 out of 100 patients are reworked in the Optometry department due to optometrist entry errors which is a great concern for patient safety.

Improper purchase and inventory management

Improper purchase and stock management results in increased material procurement costs, lack of control over nonmoving items in the pharmacy, and stock pilferage. Most manual and legacy software systems lack provisions to map these revenue leakage areas. Besides, group procurement practices ensure the best pricing

Lack of workflow optimization & unidentified revenue loss through MRD

MRD is a hidden expense element that carves out a good portion of eye hospitals’ earned revenue. Also, the manual work process in the hospital requires increased staff strength across departments and lacks standardization in staffing.

Lack of real-time information, poor asset management, and marketing practices

Decision-makers often confront a lack of information for real-time decision-making. Lack of preventive maintenance, no proper info on machine calibration, and license renewals can cost hospitals significant loss of money. Inadequate info on patient information and a lack of SMS platforms affect hospital promotions and marketing activities.

Poor technical support from the software Vendor

Most ophthalmology clinics find it difficult to be compliant with healthcare standards like NABH with their existing systems. Most hospitals that have implemented EMR software face poor customer support and most software products are not compliant with healthcare standards like NABH.
