Cerner joined the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), providing membership benefits to 1,231 of its associates, with more expected to join in the coming months. Previously limited to individuals, HFMA’s enterprise membership was developed to provide organizations with cost-effective and easy-to-implement tools and resources that increase staff engagement and optimize organizational results.
“As the industry continues to shift to value-based care and payments, we need to provide our associates with access to timely information and resources to help them advance their knowledge and expertise in the revenue cycle,” said Jeff Hurst, senior vice president of revenue cycle management and president of Cerner RevWorksSM. “Through this new enterprise membership program, we’re giving associates easy access to what they need in order to continue to grow as revenue cycle professionals.”
Cerner joins a growing number of forward-looking health care organizations that recognize the value of HFMA membership for professional development, unlimited access to financial management education and organizational alignment.
Specific enterprise membership benefits include access to online education, research reports and white papers, as well as discounted conference registrations and opportunities to connect with industry peers in virtual communities and at national and local levels.
“Enterprise membership helps organizations meet today’s healthcare finance challenges by bringing them educational and talent development resources that align with their goals,” said HFMA president and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “Through this membership, Cerner is equipping its revenue cycle management team to succeed in today’s rapidly changing healthcare environment. I look forward to working with Cerner on this and future initiatives.”
