Gettysburg, Pa. (May 22, 2022) — Diversus Health’s Kevin Light, Chief Financial Officer, will present The Many Roles Of The Modern CFO – The Diversus Health Approach at the June 2 OPEN MINDS Circle Elite Virtual Executive Roundtable. The session will help members to better understand the market trends impacting the role of CFOs in specialty provider organizations, identify key roles of the post-pandemic CFO, and discuss opportunities to transform the finance department to meet the changing sustainability demands faced by organizations.
Being a CFO in the rapidly changing health and human services market requires new skillsets beyond the traditional focus of managing daily financial activities, safeguarding assets, and producing monthly financial statements. Understanding the complex financial risks organizations need to manage, value-based reimbursement models, changing consumer expectations, and workforce engagement require a CFO to be strategic, innovative, and adaptable. Mr. Light will share his insights on how to approach these new demands, build relationships crucial for strategic impact, ensure work life balance, and have fun during the process.
“The post-pandemic financial department for specialty provider organizations has undergone a variety of organizational shifts in responsibilities and demands” Noted Monica E. Oss, chief executive officer of OPEN MINDS. “It is important for CFO’s to thoroughly understand their new roles and expectations so that they can take full advantage of the opportunities presented to them, better assess future opportunities, and begin using the fiscal department as a catalyst for positive change.”
