In today’s healthcare environment, resources are limited. Managers are challenged to get the most out of their budgeted resources and comply with budgetary constraints. The need for sound budget management tools is paramount. Managers must understand revenue and costs behavior, how to analyze their departmental performance, and how to modify performance to achieve their budgeted operational and financial objectives.

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.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  Registration and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.
