To ensure their organizations survival for years to come, hospitals and other healthcare providers must generate new revenue streams, control costs, collect every penny of reimbursement, adjust to consumer choice, and, in many instances, help lead a clinical transformation that transitions care from acute care to outpatient settings. The Healthcare Finance Summit will provide education, thought-leadership, and networking that helps hospitals and other healthcare providers do that. At this event, attendees will hear from hospital business and strategy leaders and learn how to improve profitability and uncover opportunities to increase revenue, control costs, and navigate a changing reimbursement landscape.
