As the market begins to shift from the traditional revenue cycle management approach of growing the top line to a margin and the outcome management approach of managing and improving the bottom line, it becomes increasingly important for healthcare organizations to understand and drive out cost.

Understanding the true cost of care allows provider organizations to not only identify cost-reduction opportunities, but also understand margins when negotiating bundled contracts. With narrower margins, advanced cost accounting tools have become necessary to drive margin and support an organization's mission.

This webinar highlights industry trends in cost and shares the key questions organizations need to ask themselves during these challenging times. This webinar also addresses the strategic implications for providers who do not have the much-needed cost data liquidity required to survive and thrive in today's healthcare industry.

  • Discuss the key market factors driving hospitals and health systems to shift toward advanced cost accounting.
  • Differentiate between margin and outcome management and revenue cycle management.
  • Understand approaches that industry leaders take to bend the cost curve.
