Andrea Rodewald

“Brian assisted my organization in achieving the enterprise cost reductions we were unable to produce on our own. Key to this success was his candid approach to strategic cost management and the disciplined tools and processes introduced. His assistance enhanced our cost management capabilities, strengthened our ability to execute on our cost reduction initiatives and improved our cost position for long-term success.”

“Brian is a real professional when it comes to helping hospitals to meet their cost reduction goals. Brian was a trusted advisor to me and our leadership team and helped our organization implement labor cost savings that exceeded our targets by 15%. We would not have gotten where we needed to go without his invaluable guidance, tools, and processes. I would highly recommend Brian to senior leadership teams at other hospitals or healthcare systems facing cost challenges. You will not be disappointed.”

Sean Barden

“To provide real value, it is not enough for consultants to simply provide their expertise. They must work with clients to help implement real change by ensuring that the client owns their improvement initiatives, achieves measurable results, and develops capacity to sustain progress. Brian helped our organization in all of these ways and helped break down internal barriers and guide some of the more difficult discussions with stakeholders. It was a successful project and really a good, collaborative effort.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Brian on two different occasions looking at our Medical Center’s cost management efforts. His attention to detail, and professionalism complement his expertise and make challenging work easier! Very often clients use a consultant only one time for a variety of reasons. Several years after our first engagement with Brian our financial situation created a need for further assistance, and we did not hesitate to call on Brian a second time. Our organization has implemented processes recommended and developed by Brian that we use to this day to manage our position control and cost management efforts.”

Michael McDermott, M.D.

“Brian was a trusted advisor to our leadership team. He did a great job partnering with us to plan for and implement significant and widespread cost reductions that produced a nice turnaround in our organization’s financial performance. We all knew what we needed to do, but we didn’t necessarily know how to get to where we needed to go. I highly recommend Brian to other health care organizations seeking cost reduction assistance.”

Lynn Whisman

“Prior to working with Brian patient flow at my hospital was erratic with backups commonly experienced in the E.D. and in procedure-related areas. Brian partnered with my leadership team to streamline bed use practices, reconfigure the inpatient units, and implement a new patient placement system. The collaborative effort hardwired the stabilization of census at the “sweet spots” and resulted in a 20% reduction in E.D. waiting time and a 5% improvement in nursing productivity. I would highly recommend Brian as a trusted advisor to other leadership teams facing similar challenges. Thank you for this opportunity.”

“The Board of Directors asked me to represent them with an active role on our Affordable Healthcare Initiative steering committee. Through this role I was able to work closely with Brian and his team and observe firsthand the trusted advisor role he played in guiding our leadership team to surpass the ambitious financial improvement goal we set for ourselves.

Their proven tools, processes, and discipline were invaluable along the way. I can honestly say that our organization is in a much better place now as we have turned around our operating losses while strengthening our management and leadership capabilities to sustain results.”

Rick Cooper

“…Our organization has a strategic imperative to reduce the cost of care by 25% over time to make care more affordable to our patients. In addition to reducing our own costs, this goal includes reducing the cost of care for populations of patients. With the help of Brian and his team our organization developed cost reduction plans that enabled us to meet our goals. The consultants were very professional and provided the expertise needed to make this challenging work as positive as it could be. The discipline we learned from this engagement has gone beyond cost management and improved our effectiveness in how we manage our organization.”

“Our organization identified the need to reduce cost to respond to pressures and challenges facing the healthcare industry. We turned to Brian and his team to fast-track our efforts. Brian provided a disciplined process and introduced a set of tools and resources we used to exceed our $7M cost reduction target. Brian is a real professional whom I would highly recommend to other health care organizations facing similar challenges.”
