Insight to Action

Presentation: HFMA New Jersey/Metropolitan Philadelphia Annual Institute

12 October 2015

There were some great questions from our audience at the HFMA NJ PA National Institute event last week. Beth Barker, Director of Compensation & Benefits at Southcoast Health, and I presented on the Southcoast Employee Benefit experience in a session called “Using Your Employee Benefit Plan to Advance Your Value-Based Care Strategy and Reduce Hospital Expenses”. I think we won the award for longest presentation title. The sessions were full of useful information during this critical era of transformation – from key areas of legislative change and regulatory scrutiny, to the patient experience and its impact on revenue cycle, as well as issues related to physician alignment. I was most intrigued by the final panel of CFOs from four health systems talking about what keeps them up at night and whether they would do it all over again if given the chance. Happy to say, they all said yes.
