How LOGEX and ValueCare supported departments and wards at Rivierenland Hospital to better manage their budgets

About the client

Hospital Rivierenland (ZRT) is a regional hospital with Catholic and Protestant roots that was formed in 1982 by the merger of 4 small hospitals, based in Tiel, the Netherlands.

ZRT feels a strong connection with the region and has cleverly tailored its strategy and contractual agreements with insurers by focusing on the right care in the right place and appropriate care.

LOGEX supports the hospital and MSB to execute this strategy as well as possible by means of complete registration and the integrated provision of management information for departments.

The challenge

In the period up to 2020, the organisation was unable to effectively implement the strategy, which involves various types of agreements with insurers.

The involved teams could not get direct access to the data needed to actively steer and these were not linked to each other, which meant that it was always a search for the full picture.

Departments did not always steer towards the same result that was contractually defined, which led to complicated situations.

The solution  

With the use of LOGEX and ValueCare a system was set up to reduce the time spent on registration, data delivery and the manual creation of steering information such as budgets and forecasts.

The involved teams now have more time and insight to implement the strategy intelligently.

Departments and wards receive the latest insights via online dashboards and manage on the same plan, using the same insights and forecasts: Automatically and data-driven.

By using LOGEX and ValueCare technology, all data are available in one system for departments and wards, are interlinked and can be viewed in detail. All parties involved get direct access, making it easier to have a full picture of budgets and forecasts.

The impact

  • Data is automatically unlocked, checked and supplemented for registration backlogs and made available online (ValueCare Daily Auditing)
  • Departments and units prepare a joint production, staffing and financial budget (LOGEX Budgeting)
  • Users receive monthly insight at a central location into the forecast of sales, costs and expected (medical specialist) capacity (LOGEX and ValueCare)
  • This enables departments and divisions to monitor patient care and to give the best possible substance to the agreements with health insurers
