AAFCPAs’ Human & Social Services Practice to Present Educational Workshops at Providers’ Council Annual Conference: Transitioning to Data Driven Patient Care, and Strategic Budgeting

AAFCPAs will happily present educational workshops on two important topics at the Providers’ Council 42nd Annual Convention & Expo in Boston, MA on September 25th.

Preparing Health Providers for Financial Success in the Transition to Data Driven Patient Care

As health providers move to data driven patient care and new value-based reimbursement models, payers are pushing for proven treatment and performance measures. The leaders of AAFCPAs Human & Social Services Practice, Matt Hutt, Courtney McFarland and Caitlin Harvey, will share their expertise over a 90-minute, educational and technical assistance training session to address changes needed in service delivery, infrastructure and business models that will enable behavioral health providers to capture the necessary information and statistics, and glean insight to truly understand and evaluate your costs.

Rethinking Your Budget: Leading Your Organization through a More Comprehensive Financial Planning Process

AAFCPAs advises human & social service providers to broaden the scope of their financial planning process to address the challenges of the current economic and funding landscape, and to ensure sustainability for the long-term. AAFCPAs Robin Kelley and Jeanie Gorlovsky-Schepp will share their expertise over a 90-minute, interactive workshop to impart best practice recommendations so nonprofit attendees may preserve their capacity to deliver on their missions, even in the event of unforeseen financial shortages.
