Strategic Healthcare Group (SHG) is a physician-led consulting group that is uniquely qualified to help implement safe, efficient and effective blood management practices. The President and Founder is Dr. Timothy Hannon, one of the nation’s most knowledgeable and accomplished blood management physicians. The consulting team includes experienced program coordinators, risk managers, nurses and hospital executives who have decades of blood management experience (company information). The Strategic Blood Management™ System from SHG is used by a growing number of the best hospitals in the U.S.The Strategic Blood Management™ System uses a multidisciplinary, peer-to-peer approach that quickly gains credibility with hospital staff from the floor nurses to the staff physicians to the hospital administrators. The streamlined evaluation and comprehensive process helps hospitals maximize results within the first few months, and the sustainable infrastructure along with program support tools keep the blood utilization savings going for years down the road.
The Strategic Blood Management™ System employs an accelerated change management process to speed program implementation and program results. Using a powerful E4 method - Evaluate, Educate, Engage & Empower - we shift the attitudes, behavior and culture of the organization toward better blood use within the first ninety days. As experienced consultants, we efficiently gather critical information to identify performance gaps while minimizing the impact on hospital operations. As energetic and effective communicators, we use blood management education strategies and internal awareness campaigns to help generate understanding of the evidence and need for better blood use. As experienced healthcare providers, we are able to effectively engage hospital staff because we are viewed as credible peers. Once we engage and generate buy-in from key blood utilization stakeholders within the organization, we empower program leaders and front line staff with a broad range of program support tools, educational resources and utilization analytics.
The Strategic Blood Management™ process begins with a comprehensive audit and benchmarking of the organization, which is specifically designed to identify high-yield opportunities for improvement. Areas covered in the audit include blood bank, utilization oversight, risk management, nursing practices, and perioperative systems. The evaluation includes a BloodStat® Scorecard which benchmarks hospital blood utilization against a national data set while also providing internal peer-to-peer blood utilization performance data. To help generate understanding and buy-in from clinical staff, blood management CME lectures by the evaluation team are built into the site visits. Following the evaluation, the analysis and recommendations of the Strategic Blood Management™ consulting team are presented to hospital and department leadership to discuss the clinical, operational, risk management and patient safety opportunities for improvement.
Blood management program implementation is facilitated using our Strategic Blood Management™ Pillars of Excellence program guide and program resources. The Pillars of Excellence were developed using an evidence-based, patient centered, data driven and systems-oriented approach, and collectively they encompass the major areas of focus for comprehensive blood management programs. The program guide provides the foundational elements, key performance indicators and the process improvement activities required to build a sustainable infrastructure for better blood use.The guide is then supplemented with a broad variety of program resources described below. The capstone exercise of the initial consulting phase is a program implementation workshop that uses a change team approach involving key hospital stakeholders. The workshop is a tremendous springboard for action and is the highlight of the consulting engagement. Designed to build momentum for the implementation, the workshop generates enthusiasm and empowers the multidisciplinary team with tools to identify and overcome obstacles. Participants leave the workshop with a clear sense of purpose as well a prioritized set of action plans.
Process improvement projects and other blood management opportunities identified at the implementation workshop are supported by a variety of Strategic Blood Management™ resources. These resources include dedicated program managers, periodic site re-evaluations and access to a wide range of clinical and content experts. Program leaders and key hospital personnel receive mentoring and coaching from Strategic Blood Management™ staff and undergo formal training at our Blood Management University® campus. Long-term success of the program is hardwired with our comprehensive, systems-based approach and with our suite of best in class blood management informatics products. Blood Management University® provides world class education to clinical and support staff, Blood Management Exchange® provides program networking and program support tools, and our proprietary BloodStat® Multidimensional Analytics provide the clinical and business intelligence to identify, improve and maintain blood management opportunities.
