Benefit to Facility Managers

Benchmarking data is an important resource for facility managers in developing your business case or identifying opportunities for cost savings (based on the relative performance of your facility to that of your peers).  The new Healthcare Study will be integrated into IFMA’s new interactive benchmarking information system. Users will be able to calculate benchmarks by several factors including Institution Type, Climate Zone, Geographic Region, Age, Size as well as by other common healthcare baseline metrics such as Adjusted Patient Days and Adjusted Discharges. Some of data in the report includes:
