HFMA and IHF announce online healthcare finance training for Eastern Mediterranean region

The Healthcare Financial Management Association and the International Hospital Federation announced today the launch of the IHF-HFMA Business of Healthcare online training for hospital financial managers in the Eastern Mediterranean Region.

Hospital financial management includes the planning, organizing, directing, and evaluating of all financial activities. With financial realities playing a central role in many of the decisions in today’s health systems, the financial managers play a central role.

IHF CEO Ronald Lavater said this new programme exemplifies its goal of furthering international collaborations:

“At the IHF, building the capabilities of leaders in the healthcare sector through international collaboration is central to our mission. We’re pleased to have worked in partnership with HFMA, and in connection with our regional World Health Organization network, to develop this programme and expand our training offerings.

The development of this programme will help nonfinance healthcare personnel better understand and apply financial principles in the Mediterranean region. This program is completely online, allowing participants to learn when it is most convenient for them.

HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA, said the new Eastern Mediterranean region offering will promote the exchange of knowledge about healthcare finance among nations:

“Collaborating with the IHF is another step forward in advancing the international dialogue on healthcare finance. This programme has a very accessible approach to the fundamentals of financial management, with content refined by the IHF and its network for an international audience.”
