How to connect financial results with clinical outcomes

On Demand Webinar | Overview | Accounting and Financial Reporting

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.
After this program, you'll be able to..
  • Understand what approaches are available to attribute resource-level expenditures to patient-level revenue transactions.
  • Describe how metrics and analytics can be built from connecting financial results and clinical outcomes to measure enterprise level performance.
  • Facilitate the buy-in both from physicians for improved financial results, as well as from finance team members for better clinical outcomes.

Why you should replace adjusted discharges

The use of adjusted discharges as a metric of output to assess facilitywide productivity and efficiency is flawed and leads to invalid conclusions. It does not account for the increasing volume and complexity of outpatient procedures. During this session, Providence St. Joseph Health System will share how it effectively uses equivalent discharges and demonstrate why this metric is better suited to health systems.
