    Without argument, healthcare is one of the most complex industries from both an operational and a financial perspective. In all practices, finance professionals have a responsibility and a greater focus on internal controls, risk management, business analytics, with higher awareness of systems vulnerability.  Finance can be assigned responsibility for many functions; however, they are almost always the keepers of the data. 

    As one in a series of Simple Guides, this manual takes the guesswork and confusion out of hiring for financial management so you are prepared when one of your most valued employees has just given notice or someone who has been with the practice for 10 years decides it is time to move on. Whether your practice is expanding, or you are hustling to fill an open position, you need help.

    This Simple Guide focuses on the recruitment, hiring and retention processes for the financial management positions in your practice and includes the following:
    • Identifying the most important attributes, such as integrity and honesty, required for finance professionals and staff
    • Assuring the job descriptions include tasks with checks and balances to reduce risk with the practice’s financials
    • Interviewing basics with sample behavioral-based questions which focus on the candidate's knowledge base
    • Immediate resources such as simple forms and templates that can be personalized for your practice
