The US Healthcare arena continues to evolve at a rapid pace; implementation deadlines are approaching, relationships between physician practices, independent community hospitals and regional and national health systems continue to change, and there is much discussion around the paradigm shift from volume to value. As a result, hospitals and health systems are looking at key strategies to transform their institutions to better equip themselves for the future of healthcare.

On April 7-9, 2019, CFO’s and Heads of Finance Departments for large hospital and health systems across the U.S. gathered at The Wigwam Resort in Phoenix, AZ to share insights, tips and tactics as well as engage in discussions around minimizing costs and maximizing ROI for their systems.

Designed by Healthcare Finance Executives, for Healthcare Finance Executives, the Healthcare Finance Institute recognizes the importance of staying fresh in the finance world, bringing together proactive executives ready to learn about the changes to come and the strategies to survive in a complicated healthcare ecosystem.

Attendees broke out into a series of interactive panel discussions, roundtables and keynotes surrounding topics such as the CEO’s perspective on strategic financial leadership, the rewards and risks of hospital and health system mergers and acquisitions, how to enhance value to the organization through digital innovation, meeting on what matters with hospital and physician group alignment, advancing value-based care and transitioning from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, among other areas.

With many potential outcomes to consider when facing the state of U.S. Healthcare and the pending implications, the Healthcare Finance Institute was able to provide the leaders of the future with strategic perspectives for successful financial management.

Next year’s Healthcare Finance Institute will take place April 5th – 7th, 2020 at The Belmond in Charleston, SC.
