“ 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.
‘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.’
‘They have given us a more transparent, systematic approach to managing the performance of our people by utilising a series of quality reports which has enabled us to ensure that all staff are meeting their Service User contact targets, Service User Expected Discharge Dates and the demand generated from each Service Users’ care plan.’
‘The Service has just had an inspection from the Care Inspectorate who provided us with our best review on record and specifically mentioned the hard work and improvement Meridian have made.’
‘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.’
‘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.’
‘Meridian helped us implement the tools as well as the behaviour change during the project. One of the most important achievements of the project was the implementation of a long overdue theatre module.’
‘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.’
