21. Financial Analytics Outlook – The Healthcare Finance Challenge: COVID Blip or Fundamental Shift?
We have a business problem in US Healthcare – not a technology or care problem. And the business problem is squarely centered on providers. We have large healthcare ecosystems that are growing faster than providers and new innovative models (vertically integrated insurers, innovative care entities, and large corporations) targeting provider revenue. And most healthcare systems are playing prevent defense.
But healthcare providers have significant assets and advantages they have not fully realized or operationalized yet. And this presents an opportunity for shifting the role of the CFO and finance team. More can step up as strategic leaders, build relationships and move from traditionally insular to more collaborative roles. We can move from playing defense to playing to win.
In this presentation, Dan will cover four topics, including
- Understanding the changing competitive landscape in healthcare.
- Defining a new role for healthcare finance leaders.
- Identifying new skills finance teams need.
- Learning how health systems can use data to win in this new world.
