Workforce HQ

Optimizing labor performance through informed decision-making

Labor is consistently the largest portion of a provider’s operating costs—typically more than 48 percent of total expenses. Provider systems are increasingly focusing on optimizing workforce operations to deliver better care more efficiently.

However, managing workforce productivity is a complex decision-making challenge, which requires a clear view into the options available, and an increasingly sophisticated approach to help avoid clinician burnout, manage worker shortages, and assimilate regulatory changes.

Workforce HQ is a web-based tool that provides health system leaders with transparency around key workforce metrics, helping them quickly identify anomalies and assess possible actions to improve financial, operational, and clinical performance.
