Key outputs and audience. The core content of Leadership is case examples of cross-disciplinary collaboration that foster system change and lead to business success.
The key outputs of Leadership are:
Leadership reaches beyond HFMA's traditional healthcare finance audience to the full range of healthcare provider leaders. The print magazine circulation is more than 75,000 stretching across the C-suite and other healthcare leaders. The Leadership e-newsletter goes to HFMA's entire email database of more than 100,000.
All Leadership content is available to anyone who visits the Leadership website.
Goals/impetus. The need for collaboration to drive business success and health system change was the impetus behind Leadership, an initiative launched in 2008 by HFMA Learning Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of HFMA. The business challenges in health care cannot be met by finance alone. For hospitals to thrive, they must reshape their approach to healthcare delivery to enhance quality and lower costs-an imperative greatly intensified by reform and reimbursement cuts. The kinds of systemic changes needed require collaboration among all healthcare leaders in multiple disciplines-finance, administration, clinical, technology-and among various industry stakeholders.
Response to Leadership. A recent reader survey of Leadership found the following:
Contributing articles. The majority of Leadership content is developed by HFMA staff and freelancers based on interviews with healthcare leaders and experts. However, we do accept contributed articles to the Leadership e-newsletter. We are primarily interested in case examples of cross-disciplinary collaboration that foster system change and lead to business success. For more information about contributing ideas or articles to Leadership, contact Dan Verdon.
Advertising and sponsorship opportunities. Leadership advertisers and sponsors can get their products and services in front of a progressive audience of healthcare leaders.
