Top Challenges for Healthcare CFOs

For my weekly column on healthcare financial issues, I’m seeking insight into the top challenges facing healthcare chief financial officers. What are their biggest problems or tasks at this point, and how is this changing for them? What trends or developments in healthcare are redefining their roles? I’m also interested in profiling any finance-related initiatives or strategies within a hospital or health system, so let me know about any success stories involving the CFO or financial issues.
