Healthcare Insights President to Present at Healthcare Financial Management Association's Annual Conference.
For the sixth consecutive year, Steven Berger, President of Healthcare Insights LLC (HCI), the leading provider of financial management software for the healthcare industry, is invited to speak at Healthcare Financial Management Association's (HFMA) Annual National Institute (ANI) 2004 Conference. As a leading industry expert, Steven Berger will host three educational sessions regarding financial management in healthcare facilities.
"It is an honor to present healthcare industry veteran Steven Berger at our Annual National Institute Conference from June 27 through July 1," said Andrea Williams, Manager of Education at HFMA. "Steven's combined knowledge of the industry at the practical and technology level makes him the perfect candidate to offer our attendees hands-on and proven financial management techniques for healthcare facilities."
On Sunday, June 27 at 8 A.M., Berger will conduct a session entitled, Using Data to Make Better Management Decisions, which is designed to analyze financial problems within healthcare facilities and seek solutions through management principles and analysis techniques. He will also host, Managing the Modern Medical Center with Metrics session on Monday, June 28 at 10:30 A.M., which demonstrates how hospitals can operate successfully, achieve positive financial results and improve clinical outcomes by using metrics to set appropriate goals. Berger's final session on Monday, June 28 at 2:30 P.M., Determining and Monitoring Revenue Cycle Key Performance Metrics, highlights specific revenue cycle metrics that can be used by hospitals to indicate the efficiency, effectiveness and productivity of their revenue cycle staff and management.
"I look forward to participating in this year's ANI conference," said Steven Berger, President and Founder of HCI. "As healthcare facilities have limited financial resources, it becomes even more important for management to have access to the latest information and practical solutions that will help them to manage their facilities more efficiently."
