This day-long program—part two of a two-part series introduced in April 2017—will introduce managers to a variety of analytic tools (revenue and spending analysis, volume adjusted variance analysis, work process and root cause analysis, revenue and expense forecasting) as well as a number of strategies to improve revenue and expense performance. Bill Ward, a popular and dynamic lecturer on financial management in healthcare returns at member request to present this program and the program below.
