Case Management

LOS initiative saves one facility more than $1 million

Case Management Monthly, October 1, 2008

When New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) in Wilmington, NC, wanted to decrease LOS, increase Medicare compliance, and improve its bottom line, it needed a place to start. The case management department was the perfect spot. NHRMC implemented an initiative to make its case management department more efficient and effective. The changes resulted in a 0.28 difference in Medicare LOS, increased bed availability by 3,732 in 2007, and saved the organization a total of $1,399,500.
