Today’s changing healthcare landscape demands more from the finance department than ever before. No longer a sideshow in the healthcare delivery equation, finance now plays a starring role as hospitals and healthcare providers of all kinds face the
challenge of implementing the reforms of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010.
Join RelayHealth for a recorded Healthcare Finance News webinar, Accelerating Service-to-Payment Velocity. With all of the changes happening in healthcare today, some things do remain the same. Your two primary sources of cash are still patients and third-party payers. While patient financial responsibility is rapidly increasing, a large percentage of revenue still flows in via governmental payers and commercial health plans.
There is an increasing demand for finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) among middle market companies, as organizations become more comfortable with the solution. FAO helps companies enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the finance and accounting function through process and technology improvements, enabling internal employees to focus on the core business.
RSM US LLP’s FAO platform goes beyond out-of-the-box functionality within technology solutions, integrating additional intellectual property, including workflows, business processes and organizational frameworks. By leveraging this comprehensive platform, our FAO team can help middle market companies overcome a myriad of finance and accounting challenges. These include hiring, training and developing staff, and most importantly producing actionable finance and accounting information in a timely manner to make critical business decisions.
Several economic factors are significantly impacting the hiring and retention practices for key finance and accounting personnel in every industry. However, many successful middle market companies are counteracting these challenges by leveraging outsourcing strategies to gain efficiency, overcome staffing difficulties and better manage costs.
A significant shift is currently occurring with some economic indicators, as demonstrated in the recent RSM US Middle Market Business Index. Salaries are expected to rise in the next year, with hiring increasing and unemployment subsequently falling. With these challenges in mind, competition for talent is rising, and middle market organizations will face numerous risks when looking to attract and retain skilled finance and accounting personnel.
The term outsourcing can have a negative connotation,
conjuring images of layoffs and relocating jobs to third parties
in remote locations. However, outsourcing can take many
forms, and finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) does
not always mean the displacing of the finance back office.
Specifically, FAO leverages digital technology to complement
and support the back office, streamlining processes while
providing enhanced transaction processing, reporting and
analytics capabilities. It also allows key resources to focus on
strategy, analysis and decision-making.

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine
Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions.
The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2
