Healthcare financing all over the world faces complex challenges of equity, quality and access to healthcare services. Also, financial management is critical for effective implementation of programs. Increasingly, the programs emphasize rigorous auditing and reporting requirements to ensure risks of implementation are adequately addressed. The financial management system also ensures effective utilization of resources.
WOne ensures that the financial management system in a given context and environment aims at developing and instituting a set of arrangements and practices that facilitate improving the performance of the program and ensuring that objectives are achieved. The various components of financial management arrangements and practices that are addressed are as follows:
Strengthening of hospitals is done through developing and implementing financial budgeting systems that are based on costing of services and utilization load. Through this approach, WOne seeks to understand how much it costs to provide various services in hospitals, examine the utilization load and arrive at the budget of hospital. The analysis helps the hospital management to develop financing options and policies to sustain the healthcare effort. Some specific areas which programme managers find useful are:
|How much will it cost to support a strong and effective hospital care system over next five, ten, or twenty years?|
|How will the policy choices made today on strengthening hospital activities affect the budget?|
|If funds are scarce, what is the best way to use them in the coming years to ensure that maximum lives are saved? How can this help to cut down on costs to be paid to deliver hospital services in the future?|
|If the efficiency of prevention programs is raised, how much will this reduce the costs of future hospital care? Are there other possible efficiencies? If yes, how can they be achieved, and how much would they save?|
|Based on the findings and analytical outcomes of the study process, how can modern technologies and information technology be used to contribute to state-wide healthcare resource optimization as well as to improvements in service delivery to end-user?|
|In addition to core analysis, WOne analysis attempts to establish key components of a consolidated central information management system, where each and every variable of information pertaining to disease management, disease spread, patient congregation and priority areas, could be monitored across the board for focused action and results.|
|Possibilities of induction of advanced process based tools in patient-care management, medicines inventory control, and effective distribution system of consumables can be well identified to provide long-term goals of a robust model.|
