Six chapters have joined forces to present a joint certification coaching course to be presented as a 4 part series of webinars presented by Christoph Stauder. The six chapters are: CT, MA/RI, ME, NH/VT, SC and WI.
One webinar covers exam 1 and testing strategies. Three webinars will present two case studies from one of the three environments. These webinars will help you apply business judgement to case studies that describe various situations, opportunities and challenges that one might confront as a provider, payer or physician group.
How do you teach strategic thinking? We have Christoph Stauder to help develop business judgment by observing decisions of others and what would have been better or different.

The Business of Health Care - This webinar provides an overview of the content of HFMA’s 12- to 14-hour Business of Health Care online self-study program and its associated 90-minute exam by covering selected topics from each of the six BoH courses. The webinar will use sample screen prints and knowledge check questions from each of the six courses to illustrate what participants will learn in greater by taking the course and will be expected to know for the exam. The webinar will serve as a brief content review for people who have already begun preparing for the first exam.
Preparing for the Operational Excellence Exam - Since HFMA does not provide a study guide or online course for the Operational Excellence exam (the second of the two CHFP certification exams), this webinar, and the two that follow it, introduces participants to the strategic business skills required of CHFP candidates. Webinar 2 covers the healthcare business environment from the perspective of hospitals, webinars 3 and 4 from the perspective of health plans and physicians. In each of the three webinars, participants are introduced to two business cases illustrating the decisions that senior executives must make in today’s competitive, value-oriented healthcare marketplace. The first two case studies cover Hospital Cost Structure and Hospital Consolidation.
Preparing for the Operational Excellence Exam (continued) - This webinar looks at healthcare from the perspective of health plans by way of two business cases involving health plans and their interactions with other market participants. The webinar will discuss the some of the decisions senior executives at health plans must make in today’s competitive, value-oriented healthcare marketplace.
Preparing for the Operational Excellence Exam (conclusion) - This webinar looks at healthcare from the perspective of physicians by way of two business cases involving physicians and their interactions with other market participants. The webinar will discuss some of the decisions physician leaders must make in today’s competitive, value-oriented healthcare marketplace.
