The Nash Group SDM20/20™ planning methodology is proven to:

- dismantle consumption of premium dollars
- advance patient placement and aggregation
- improve patient disposition and reduce length of stay
- increase staff retention 20%-40% and improve recruitment cycles
- make workforce operations and schedules sustainable
