HFMA Offers ACPA Member Discounts on Educational Activities

Published on 9/8/2018

HFMA Business of Health Care ® Online Program

A shift from volume to value in care and payment models, a focus on patient outcomes and population health, performance-based incentives around safety and quality, consumerism and increased cost-sharing: the American healthcare system is undergoing a radical transformation.

Today more than ever, collaboration around business fundamentals—payment and delivery models, cost, and revenue —are the essential context for decision-making during the process of delivering care.

HFMA Business of Health Care® Online Program was designed to give you an overview of that essential context. Understand it, and you can work more effectively with your clinical, operational and finance teams across the healthcare continuum. The six modules are:

I.   Healthcare Finance-The Big Picture
II.  Financial Accounting Concepts
III. Cost Analysis Principles
IV. Strategic Financial Issues
V.  Managing Financial Resources
VI. Looking to the Future

As an additional value to Members of ACPA, individual learners can access this program for $249 per learner ($150 less than the HFMA Non- Member rate). HFMA Business of Health Care® is approved for 13.5 hours of continuing education including AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and 13.5 contact hours as continuing education by ANCC.

For Members of ACPA, who are not HFMA Members, HFMA will offer Professional Membership for $349, (regular price $425). ACPA members may access these discounts with HFMA be using CODE “ACPA” at checkout.
