GRASP » Services » Skill Mix Analysis

By: Grasp Systems International  09-12-2011


Organizational design at your facility is an ever-changing landscape. Between facing the ongoing challenge of recruitment and retention of qualified clinical staff, to addressing annual budgets, expansions or opening new facilities, how you determine the right blend of staff impacts your bottom line and the overall satisfaction of your patients and staff.


GRASP Systems has developed a Skill Mix Analysis to help your facility determine the appropriate blend of staff within a specific unit based on patient needs.

The key to completing a successful Skill Mix Analysis is to use an actual patient population and determine the appropriate skill level of the person who should be handling each intervention. This approach provides an accurate picture of your needs, rather than simply a mirror image of the status quo.

The GRASP Skill Mix Analysis not only examines the direct and clinical care of the patient, but the indirect care as well. Our four-step process can:

  • indicate how many professional and support staff are necessary
  • evaluate the availability and accessibility of resources in the geography to support organizational objectives
  • recommend the most appropriate delivery mechanism
  • assist in achieving consensus at all levels of the organization

GRASP » Services » Business Process Refinement

You think you've identified the roadblocks to optimum business performance, but can't seem to strike the right balance between patient requirements and skillful delivery of care within a particular unit or throughout the organization. Often times, the key lies in a fresh, external perspective to help differentiate perceived problems and solutions from truly actionable strategies.


GRASP » Services » Care Delivery Analysis

Determining whether your facility delivers patient care in the most efficient manner, particularly during a time of rapidly growing staff shortages, requires you to proactively pinpoint those areas that may need improvement. Care Delivery Analysis - Our proprietary method combines assessment, one-on-one discussions with managers/staff members, and active observation.


GRASP » Services » Simulation Based Rapid Prototyping

Determining the impacts from changes in practice is one of the most difficult tasks when implementing new processes and technologies. Once built, Rapid Prototyping techniques are applied to identify and eliminate process inefficiencies. The combination of data becomes the base for development of the current practice computation model. GRASP Systems data is used to apply time and frequency to each of these interventions.
