How do you satisfy the needs of a CNO
and a CFO at the same time?

This question may sound like we’re leading into a joke, but it’s no laughing matter.

CNOs and CFOs each play a critical role in the success of their organization, but, oftentimes, the two roles are at odds with each other. In fact, instituting changes that make one happy normally comes at the expense of the other.

We understand this reality, but we also understand that it doesn’t have to be that way. CNOs and CFOs can be friends. They can work together. And they can achieve their individual goals — together. All it takes is a proven plan, created to satisfy everyone’s needs.

For over twenty years, The Nash Group has been generating significant cost savings while helping to improve patient care and outcomes in hospitals, health systems, nursing homes and ambulatory service companies around the country. Want proof? Take a look at some of our testimonials. Or, learn more about what we do to help CNOs and CFOs.

"The Nash Group’s SDM 20/20 methodology provided our team with the analytics to make well informed operational decisions about our processes. Using total census, not ADC, they are able to create “what if” scenarios. This affords us the fluidity and creativity to consider several budget compliant models and select the best one."

− Beverly J. Schrickel, Firelands Regional Medical Center

"We use The Nash Group’s Nash Analytics tool to track our operations in real time. The real time feature allows us to monitor finances, care model compliance and patient clinical indicators. Rather than wait for weeks, or even months, for reports based on midnight census, nurse managers get real time feedback based on true patient activity that includes observation patients."

− Pat Bignoli, Firelands Regional Medical Center

"The nursing department has continued to reduce agency costs by filling RN vacancies so that RNs are readily available for each patient care center…. Overall, staff satisfaction has improved using the new model once nurses adjusted to working in ‘full units’ and the staff learned what could be expected on any given shift."

− Carole McCue, Nyack Hospital
