Workforce Scheduling Improves Patient Care in Latest Axsium Whitepaper

Workforce Scheduling Improves Patient Care in Latest Axsium Whitepaper

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 22, 2011

Axsium Group today announced the release of the Healthcare Productivity Balancing Act, a whitepaper helping healthcare organizations balance patient care and quality, while controlling costs, using proactive workforce scheduling. The whitepaper will be available at the annual HIMSS conference in Orlando, Florida, at Axsium’s booth #3582 or available for immediate download.

Patient care and quality of service are two key differentiators in healthcare. Every organization strives to achieve the highest quality ratings in the industry while providing superior care to patients, all while working hard to control costs. It’s a daunting task for any healthcare organization. Axsium’s latest whitepaper outlines the importance of deploying a comprehensive workforce scheduling system as a mechanism to overcome the difficulty of balancing these differentiators with the organizational need to control costs.

“Properly managing labor productivity is a central pillar for healthcare providers trying to balance the need to provide superior patient care, industry recognized quality and keep costs in line,” said Chris Flanders, healthcare practice lead, Axsium Group. “By standardizing critical staffing and workforce business processes, healthcare organizations will be better poised to manage and control labor costs, improve productivity throughout the delivery system and ultimately provide better patient care.”

Axsium’s healthcare team will be available all week at HIMSS, in booth #3582, to provide copies of this latest research and discuss how your organization might benefit from a scheduling system.

Health Trends Guide Reveals Latest Fitness, Nutrition, Yoga, Obesity, Diabetes, Aging & Wellness Trends For 2012 and Beyond

Health Trends Guide Reveals Latest Fitness, Nutrition, Yoga, Obesity, Diabetes, Aging & Wellness Trends For 2012 and Beyond

Leslie Nolen, Author

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 26, 2011

The instantly useful Health and Wellness Insider’s Guide to Durable Trends, Fleeting Fads & Innovative Ideas provides a health trends roadmap for every wellness sector: fitness, nutrition, yoga and mind-body trends, conventional, complementary and alternative healthcare trends, obesity and diabetes management, and longevity and aging trends. It illuminates the most significant opportunities and challenges facing health and wellness businesses, practitioners and investors, says author Leslie Nolen, president of The Radial Group.

Readers describe the report as:

“profoundly accurate”

“a crystal ball for the future of health and wellness, with the solid research and analysis to back it up”

“a wellness roadmap full of resources and information, with its finger on the pulse”

“a wealth of great, practical information”

Available worldwide in paperback, Kindle or PDF versions, this unique wellness trends guide spans the entire health and wellness spectrum, from fitness, nutrition and yoga to healthcare, diabetes, obesity and aging.

Unlike expensive and dry statistical reports, Nolen says the Health and Wellness Insider’s Guide is “Designed to be instantly actionable for health and wellness executives, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and investors plus media and marketing professionals”:

Special features include:

1. A detailed trend checklist of crucial developments in fitness, nutrition, mind-body practices, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), healthcare and medicine, obesity and diabetes, and longevity and aging

2. A four-page Buzzword List which gives practitioners instant explanations of the latest terminology and jargon

3. Discussion of eight emerging convergence trends like “healthy skepticism” and “Lifestyle Change 2.0” which are shaping the future for all health and wellness businesses and practitioners

4. Three proprietary models – the Health & Wellness Continuum, Dimensions of Health & Wellness and Health & Wellness Toolbox – which provide a new foundation for understanding the health and wellness interest as a whole

Then, each individual trend chapter leads with a “Big Picture” summary followed by detailed strategic insights and discussion for the eight sectors of health and wellness:

1. Consumer health and wellness trends

2. Fitness, exercise and physical activity

3. Nutrition, food and healthful eating

4. Yoga and other mind-body practices

5. Complementary & alternative medicine

6. Conventional medicine & healthcare

7. Obesity & diabetes

8. Longevity, aging & older adults

Nolen concludes with a discussion of seven guiding principles that will shape health and wellness futures for 2012 and beyond.
