Health Care Financial Accounting 2 Simulation Review Phase I: Capital Shortage The cost-cutting option that I selected was Reducing Agency Staff and Reducing Benefits because these two options will produce the biggest savings annually. In choosing reducing the agency’s staff members, it provides good cost cutting measures without there being any significant drop in the organization’s revenue. This type of reduction will only slightly affect patient care. The most important reason this cost-cutting option was selected was that in hiring staff from an agency it is more costly than hiring employees to work full-time. It will save on the management fees billed to the organization and premiums that must be paid out to the agency. The salaries for individuals that are contracted through the agency are twice the cost of hospital’s staff members. However, if it deemed necessary to bring in agency workers then that option can be evaluated for each job’s position that have been vacated. The second option was to reduce benefits and this particular change will help Elijah Health Center with a 20-30 percent cost reduction. It will also only cause a slight affect to the quality of care the patient receives. Downsizing, reducing the length-of-stay, and changing the skill mix provides the least savings annually to the health center. Therefore, in choosing this option along with the reduction of agency staff it only slightly affects the quality of patient care and annual savings The loan option to improve the current working capital situation at Elijah Health Center was loan option two. This option was selected because it provides a lower interest rate of nine percent, and would solve the current cash flow problem. The hospital will also receive payments from Medicare, as well as other managed care payers and in three months, it will solve the current cash flow situation.
