Case Study: VVH
VVH has a prudenceful problem: A superior strategic extrinsic of the bloom regularity
was to become its ambulatory prudence network, but the form is oppositeness a
enumerate of challenges. Although a new billing regularity was grounded and var-
ious reimbursement-maximization strategies were done, whole costs in
the regularity achieve return. This was occurring plain though the clinic staff
felt occupied and backlog appointments were becomeing. Analysis of clinic postulates

also indicated an increasing enumerate of patients were canceling appointments
or were “no shows.”

had been created from the merger of three disunited orders; this clinic is
aggressively competing after a while VVH for aloof insured patients. The new
large clinic is making same-day clinic appointments advantageous and heavily
advertising them.
The table of VVH asked the foremost constabulary dignitary (CEO) to develop
a artifice to discourse this becomeing matter. The CEO primary formed a feeble strat-
egy team to transfer amendment efforts; its primary plod was to convey the foremost
operating dignitary, foremost financial dignitary, and medical manager to plain the
planning and finance staff on the amendment team.
VVH notwithstanding determined that it needed to acception the enumerate of
patients seen by clinicians and start to utensil recent way in its clin-
ics. Because VVH believes in knowledge-based conduct and sharing in
improved methods of delivering bloom services, the form has made
its postulates and notification advantageous on the coadjutor web locality. VVH invited
students and practitioners to aid them correct this regularity.

2. How would you discourse the no-shows and cancellations effect?
3. Develop a contrivance charter for one contrivance associated after a while VVH’s problems.
4. Develop a balanced scorecard for VVH’s clinics.

system, how would you go environing doing this? Be favoring.
6. Would mannerism be a available hireling in VVH’s pursuit to utensil
recent way? Why or why not? How would you go environing imple-
