Liaison with standards-setting bodies
The P&P Board works with the AICPA, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board to address the unique financial reporting needs of healthcare organizations and improve consistency in accounting and financial reporting among different ownership types.
Position statements & issue analyses
Prior to issuance, a proposed position statement follows an extensive "due process." An exposure draft is released for public comment for at least 60 days. These comments are analyzed and reviewed by the P&P Board. The P&P Board also releases issue analyses, which provide short-term assistance by assembling current literature on emerging issues. An issue analysis is not sent out for public comment.
To contact the P&P Board, or for further information, please call HFMA's Washington D.C., office at (202) 296-2920.
