The First Illinois, McMahon-Illini, Indiana Pressler, and Wisconsin HFMA Chapters are excited to announce our 2021 Virtual CHFP Practicum on February 4th and 5th, 2021. The practicum will take place from 10am – 2pm each day and will be focused on preparing attendees to pass the Operational Excellence exam and finish the Practicum as a Certified Healthcare Finance Professional. In addition to the education session, the event offers a chance to (virtually) network with other individuals in your chapter and the others hosting the event.
The 2020-21 CHFP cohort meets for a virtual, multi-day coaching course and proctored exam attempt for the Operational Excellence (second) CHFP exam. On the first day, the class starts with an accelerated review of the knowledge tested on the first CHFP exam. Participants then work as a group on strategic case studies, one each from a payer, provider, and physician perspective. These case studies place participants imaginatively into complex and nuanced situations similar to those senior healthcare executives face in real life and must decide on. On the second day, the class will start with a couple additional case studies, and then around 11am, participants who have already passed the first exam can move to a breakout room to attempt a proctored second exam. Participants not ready for the second exam stay with the Instructor and work through three additional case studies for the balance of the day.
