Reporting, accounting and auditing: keeping a firm grip on your finances

The need to improve cost-efficiency is nothing new to hospitals; however, since the introduction of SwissDRG and the amendment to the Health Insurance Act (HIA) in 2012, pressure has increased even further, and it shows no sign of abating. This poses a huge challenge to hospitals: efficient processes are a must, while accurate, transparent calculations and reporting for services and costs are paramount if institutions are to survive in an increasingly competitive environment. Furthermore, a number of hospitals are about to invest in large-scale projects which require secure financing and an effective plan to ensure their long-term feasibility. 

Any decisions on the future of your hospital should be based on reliable processes and financial data.
