The Alta Group released a new white paper, focusing on hospital capital spending, the impact of reduced reimbursements and other cost control measures on hospitals as well as the benefits of flexible alternatives including equipment leasing versus traditional funding sources.
“Due to evolving business models in the health care industry, we felt that CFOs would welcome a thoughtful approach to assessing some alternative financial solutions that could provide significant benefit while enabling hospitals to better meet the needs of both patients and the hospital’s bottom line,” said DJ DiMarco, executive vice president of CHG-MERIDIAN USA, which commissioned the white paper. “Since improved financial efficiency is rewarded with increased funding, this is a win-win scenario.”
The white paper notes that bonds and commercial loans are limited and may not always represent the best option. It further advises that better solutions exist to acquire assets with high obsolescence rates from and via alternative financial sources.
