VHI's Efficiency (and Productivity) indicators were designed to help large employers, and purchasers (health insurance companies) to find the most efficient and productive health care providers.
Performance measures include charges, costs, productivity, financial viability, and community support.
Why is this important?
Facilities that are efficient may waste less and provide better quality of care by streamlining and reducing unnecessary costs. VHI indicators allow you to see how facilities rank as far as costs and also their profits (operating margins).
