How to connect financial results with clinical outcomes

Most healthcare provider organizations perform patient accounting transactions and general accounting transactions in separate systems. Even though recent advances in technology have increased the opportunity to collect patient level activity data at the time of resource utilization, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications have traditionally focused more on resource procurement and maintenance, than resource utilization. For reason this reason, it continues to be difficult to accurately connect financial results with clinical outcomes.

This webinar will discuss how healthcare organizations can better leverage data about patient activities and resource utilization to overcome the challenge of connecting financial results to clinical outcomes.
