The need to control costs has skyrocketed in the industry, with major Medicare cuts hitting October 1st. With labor as a long-term care provider's largest expense, organizations are prioritizing labor cost management as a top initiative in light of the downward pressures on revenue they are experiencing. Issues such as reducing overtime, precisely managing staffing levels and optimizing staff scheduling can significantly reduce labor costs.

"Long-term care providers in Pennsylvania and across the nation are facing tough times. Major reductions to Medicare are just around the corner, so they will really feel a financial squeeze like never before," stated Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift. "The good news is that providers can take steps to control costs while still maintaining quality care, especially when it comes to labor. I'm looking forward to sharing best practices that are proven to help providers control costs and experience immediate financial results."
