Differing goals and areas of emphasis for the CFO and the laboratory director require strategies for integration and flawless execution to achieve alignment with the overall mission and goals of the corporate entity, health system, or hospital. In today’s healthcare environment, the average tenure of a hospital CFO is just over five years.  A laboratory director may be with an organization for a longer period and, during that time, work with a number of different c-suite executives and CFOs who play key roles in the approval process for investments in necessary resources such as FTEs, capital requirements, and reagent rentals.

The laboratory director may approach the opportunity or investment from a different vantage point without fully understanding the goals of the CFO and vice versa.  This may deter a needed investment or, at the very least, delay progress.  In this webinar, laboratory leaders and professionals will have an opportunity to go “behind the scenes” with presenters who have direct CFO and laboratory leadership expertise to obtain new tips and tools to directly apply in their own settings.

 Participants attending this session will:

  • Gain insight into what is important to laboratory directors and CFOs to efficiently develop effective communication strategies.
  • Have tools to implement mutually beneficial goals.
  • Understand what is needed to adequately prepare to present funding requests.
  • Gain expertise and confidence to face broader challenges in the laboratory setting.
