Dear Readers,
Welcome to the October issue of the National Hospital Flash Report. Results from September demonstrated slight profitability improvements on a year-over-year basis, but declining profitability from August. As we’ve noted in the last several issues, we now are observing a greater degree of variance in profitability performance each month as we head into the winter season. Revenue performance continued to be strong as compared with last year, but several monthly declines indicate that leaders need to keep an eye on their revenue performance drivers.  Expense performance was also mixed, and this month we focus on how leaders can leverage comparative data to flip the productivity equation to better set and manage labor targets, and convey those goals to managers in an easier way to understand. We have a number of exciting Spotlight topics planned for the remainder of this year and next, and look forward to sharing them with you in upcoming issues. As always, we appreciate your readership.

Thanks,
Jim Blake
