HEALTHCARE

BUSINESS PROGNOSIS

Healthcare organisations of all types are


being forced to rethink and re-engineer
traditional business models to keep pace
with demographic and lifestyle trends, fiscal
constraints and rapidly advancing technology.
The sector is highly regulated and subject
to shifts in national and local policy. Health
and social care providers are required to
demonstrate national minimum standards
through compliance with the Care Standards
Act 2000.
The value of your business depends
significantly on your ability to demonstrate
high standards in resident care, quality of
the working environment, staffing levels,
professional management and processes
and procedures.

MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS


A business prognosis will help you to evaluate
strengths and areas in need of development
to ensure the right decisions are made about
your new or existing business. Whether
your business is flourishing and ready for
expansion or in trouble and in need of a survival
assessment. AECOMs Healthcare Business
Progress tool, designed by our healthcare
professionals, will provide a holistic and
insightful assessment of your business, helping
you to better understand its performance
and potential.
