6 Healthcare EPM Trends: #3 De-Mystifying the Budget Process

TREND #3: DE-MYSTIFYING THE BUDGET PROCESS: PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT LEADS TO PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT Budgets have traditionally been an aggregation of numbers molded into a financial statement to measure margins and then asking business leaders to explain actual-to-budget variances.
