Realizing your return on analytics

The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) are honored to collaborate to provide education and experiences that bring together clinical and financial leaders in healthcare. Attend the upcoming webinar series, sponsored by Kaufman Hall, on Improving Clinical and Financial Outcomes in Healthcare Organizations. This webinar series is available to HFMA and AAPL members at no cost.


Generating data alone does not bring clarity. A healthcare organization's ability to sustain high-value care delivery and ensure its long-term strategic financial viability increasingly depends on how effectively it can apply data analytics to inform improvement efforts related to quality, cost, and patient experience.

At the most basic level, the purpose of analytics is to get the right information to the right people to help them make the right decisions. During this webinar, we will review a framework and share examples of how hospitals and health system can progress from identifying strategic opportunities to executing solutions that achieve each opportunity's full potential and deliver the expected return on analytics.

Costing for the masses

CHRISTUS began an initiative to address the need for accurate, actionable cost information that could inform the organization's understanding of true cost across episodes of care, service lines, and patient populations. Over the past 14 months, CHRISTUS has engaged and trained over 140 RVU managers and 60 active reporting users to be part of this new costing initiative. Managing a large user base comes with its own set of challenges, including maintaining data integrity, improving user base acumen, providing training, reducing redundant requests, and getting buy-in from clinical operators. With a creative approach, CHRISTUS has driven new, thoughtful best practices and processes. The organization has successfully established a new, reliable data governance structure, empowering cross-organizational audiences like supply chain and clinical leaders to champion the data. By implementing this initiative, CHRISTUS has connected data to users who need it, enabling true costing for the masses.
