This research study, sponsored by IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), seeks to examine the role of management accountants in the U.S. healthcare industry. Through roundtable discussions with 20 leaders in U.S. healthcare financial management, accounting, and analytics roles, we explored the role of management accountants in organizational value delivery.
The study provides insights on costing practices as well as the evolution of the finance function’s role in healthcare institutions. As businesses demand more from finance, the function must evolve toward delivering greater value. This report provides perspective on how finance can best meet this challenge.
