$3.9 Billion overspend in US Healthcare

A study released today by American Hospital Directory suggests that as much as half of the $7.8 billion spent by American hospitals on contract labor could be saved through better management.

American Hospital Directory published its first contract labor study in August 2004 using data through 2002. The study released today is the second in this series of reports, and incorporates data through 2003 and preliminary data for 2004.
