OAK BROOK, Ill., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) introduced the Tactics for Tough Times briefing series and Web-based resource center to help its academic medical center members perform more efficiently during the economic downturn.

"The challenges of the current economic conditions have increased the need for meaningful knowledge sharing on proven cost reduction initiatives and ideas. UHC's Tactics for Tough Times briefing series provides our members with strategies and tactics that have been successfully implemented by their peers to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and improve overall performance," said Irene Thompson, president and chief executive officer of UHC.

Tactics for Tough Times briefings present information in a concise format to facilitate quick evaluation and action. The information is summarized from a variety of UHC resources, including clinical and operational benchmarking projects; clinical, operational, and supply chain databases; and council projects. The briefings also provide tools and contacts to help members quickly assess the potential impact for their organizations and connect with UHC staff experts and other members for useful networking and valuable knowledge sharing.

The initiative spans a broad range of savings opportunities. Topics, which are added to monthly, include high-impact areas such as:

  • Labor practices-increase new graduate nurse retention
  • Supply chain standardization
  • Clinical process improvement
