Hospitals and health systems nationwide are experiencing significant strategic, operating, and financial challenges as healthcare transitions to the new business model. While the pace of change varies from market to market, even organizations in slow-moving markets must develop strategies to proactively move toward a value-based care delivery and payment system. Having a solid strategic-financial planning process and a firm understanding of the evolving healthcare environment will help organizations best position themselves for long-term success.


This Webinar will highlight key issues that require attention by healthcare directors and executives, and outline the importance of understanding essential finance mechanisms and planning processes in order to ensure sound strategic and financial decisions. Based on The Governance Institute’s 2016 signature publication written by Ken Kaufman, the Webinar will address the implications of the new healthcare era on hospital business. Topics will include disruptive forces in healthcare, core elements of disciplined planning, and the importance of implementing such practices in your organization.


After viewing this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify some of the key disruptive forces that are driving rapid change in healthcare.
  • Describe the importance of integrated strategic financial planning and the overarching goals of the planning process.
  • Describe the long-term benefits of finding the right level of capital spending and the right balance of cash and debt.
  • Describe common financing mechanisms, how options are evaluated, and new and ongoing sources of risk faced by hospitals and health systems.
