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 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.’
'What made the real impact on the service was the staff's ownership and engagement achieved through the 'Meridian' way of working.'
‘It was necessary for Management to regain ownership of what happens in theatre. That has been achieved. It was necessary for us to put a structure on key decisions around the allocation of Theatre resources. That has been achieved. It was necessary for us to put structures in place so that we can ensure that the Group's priorities are delivered on in theatre. We are a long way down that road.’
‘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.’
‘Working with Meridian has been a very positive experience for the organisation and we are already looking at further opportunities for improvement within the organisation. We would thus highly recommend them to other organisations to achieve real cost and efficiency results.’
