“ Helping our clients ensure the right resources, in the right place, at the right time...”
Delivering results with the frontline
Meridian works with Healthcare Providers achieving significant, sustainable advances in performance whilst simultaneously achieving real savings.
Our service, supporting your management, is patient-focussed; freeing up frontline resources to spend increased quality time with patients, handle increased patient numbers and reduce waiting times, whilst providing exceptional value for money.
Meridian offers a significant return on investment (ROI) on all of our projects and also offer a guarantee to protect our clients from any in-year exposure.
‘The Meridian team were very well received and engaged the staff from project start to end which enabled us to achieve £321,729 savings in Imaging, £302,423 savings in Outpatients and £232,975 savings in Theatres.’
‘Meridian were able to work collaboratively to focus their time and efforts on the areas pin-pointed not only by themselves and other external bodies such as the model hospital, but also by the areas of need described by Chesterfield staff.’
‘The work has allowed the trust to implement a new slot template for MR and CT resulting in an increased revenue earn of £871,438 annualised as a minimum with an increased appointment slot capacity based on a 10% unable to scan rate inclusive.’
‘Our Trust will successfully increase our revenue potential, which will directly contribute to our CIP savings, whilst maintaining the quality of patient care delivered. The enthusiasm and drive demonstrated by Meridian staff throughout the process enabled the project to run with vigour and pace from beginning to end.’
‘In July of this year it will be two years from when the initial phase of the change project was completed. My initial impression was of a project that had gone very well and thankfully the subsequent two years have confirmed this. Changes implemented in the first 6 months have led to long-term changes in data capture, in how staff relate to and work with each other, and in how and when patients are admitted to our service. Objective output measures such as bed occupancy and the number of admissions have shown clear improvements.’
‘Subsequent to the theatre review exercise undertaken, the organisation is better equipped to maintain our waiting times, in parallel to improving our cost base and ensuring our new recruitment plans meet patient care standards and demand.’
‘The service had worked with a management consultancy firm over a number of months. The impact was said to be 'huge' and positive. For example: streamlined work practices and a reduction in meetings meant more time to spend with service users; better planning for admissions and new reporting systems meant better uptake of spaces.’
‘The new staff rota system included a designated shift coordinator who would oversee tasks. Communication systems had improved and provided staff with all the information they needed to work in a safe and efficient way. Staff said they were looking forward to new opportunities, such as regularly facilitating groups.’
‘The hospital is now in position to assess the current capacity surplus or deficit in each specialty versus the demand using factual information. With the use of the Capacity Planner the management team can review the workload of all consultants against the national targets and take appropriate actions to meet the demand and the patient treatment goals.’
‘All available sessions are now utilised and the management team all take part in the decision making process with regards to staff management, waiting list management and taking actions on identified problems.’
