Healthcare Finance July/August 2014
The latest issue of Healthcare Finance reveals, in detail, the results of the first HFMA temperature check. The survey of NHS finance directors and chief financial officers in England shows a determination to at least maintain the quality of services received by patients, but also a warning that finances may suffer. The issue also looks at two aspects of costing – how one trust used costing to improve understanding of surgical site infections, improving quality and reducing costs in the process; and we examine time-driven activity-based costing and how it differs from patient-level costing. We also feature NHS organisations using technology to help keep patients out of hospital and a look at how finance departments are embracing Future-focused finance.
