    Excel Series 2
    Mapping Tables (Intermediate)


    When you need a report that your accounting system doesn’t provide, you probably turn to Excel to create the report. In this session, we will explore the features, functions, and techniques needed to help automate these types of reports. For example, you want to export a trial balance and you want Excel to pull the values into the proper lines in a balance sheet, even when the labels are different and even when many accounts need to roll up to a single report line. By the end of the session, you’ll learn how to structure your reporting workbook so that your Excel formulas automatically summarize the exported accounting system data.

    Revenue Cycle Series 1
    Healthcare Consumerism:
    How Patient Behavior is Changing the Landscape


    Summary: More than ever, the healthcare patient is becoming increasingly engaged in the decision-making process.  Similar to the transformation of entertainment media delivery (think Netflix, RedBox, Hulu), healthcare providers stand at the edge of a changing landscape where patients are playing an ever larger role of how, where, and with whom they will obtain and pay for healthcare services.  This presentation focuses on the forces affecting healthcare supply and demand, and examines the effects and strategies that continue to emerge.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Examine the industry forces contributing to the consumerism shift
    2. Interpret outcomes from other industries
    3. Explore the impacts on access, cost, and quality
    4. Review strategic and competitive elements for providers to consider

    Excel Series 3
    Power Pivot Basics (Advanced)


    Do you love PivotTables? Of course, we all do! Traditional PivotTables are incredible…but, they do have limitations. If you have ever encountered one of these limitations, you’ll be excited to learn that by using Power Pivot, you’ll be able to bypass many of the restrictions that exist with traditional PivotTables. Power Pivot provides a new data source for PivotTables, and essentially combines the flexibility of formula-based reports with the PivotTable engine. Microsoft provides Power Pivot free for most editions of Excel for Windows 2010 and forward (currently, it is unavailable in Excel for Mac). In this session, we’ll explore Power Pivot and the data model, build PivotTables from multiple tables, create calculated columns, and write measures. If you frequently build PivotTables and would like to do more with them, you’ll want to understand how Power Pivot can enhance your reports and workflow. Learning objectives: (1) recall the steps to access the Power Pivot window; (2) identify the process to create table relationships; and (3) state the procedure for building named sets.

    How Do You Do This in Excel (Intermediate)

    How do you get from your house to the store? Do you walk? Ride a bike? Drive a car? All of these methods will get you there, but, some are faster than others. The same is true in Excel. There are often several ways to accomplish any given task in Excel. But, not all options provide the same efficiency. For example, let’s say you need to compute a report subtotal, such as the fixed assets subtotal. How do you do this in Excel? Do you use the SUM function? If so, it may surprise you to learn that there is a more efficient option. In this session, we’ll examine several common Excel tasks and then discuss our options.

    Revenue Cycle Series 2
    Measurement, Accountability, Discipline--
    a "MAD" Approach to Revenue Cycle Performance


    Summary: This session incorporates the principles of measurement, accountability, and discipline to illustrate how to develop a sustained approach to a high performing revenue cycle.  In today’s “magic pill” society, leaders must realize and accept that performance and profitability are not achieved by quick fixes, but by a measured, accountable, disciplined effort.  Attendees will learn how to identify and track problem areas through KPI measurement, ensure all areas are held accountable for their measured performance, and incorporate a disciplined approach to process management.

    Learning Objectives – participants will learn how to:

    1. Incorporate the principles of measurement, accountability, and discipline in process improvement
    2. Examine their own revenue cycle to determine where problem areas may exist
    3. Explore tips and strategies for effective implementation of the MAD principles

    Excel Series 5
    Better Together (Power Query and Power Pivot) (Advanced)


    Excel users have prepared reports the same way for decades…formulas and PivotTables. Typically, we export data from an accounting system, copy and paste it into an Excel workbook, clean and prepare it for use, and then use PivotTables and/or functions such as VLOOKUP and SUMIFS. But, that workflow is manual and slow. In this session, we’ll use Power Query and Power Pivot to improve our workflow. Specifically, we’ll use Power Query to get and shape external data. We’ll send the query results into the data model. We’ll use Power Pivot to organize tables and create measures and then use them as the source for PivotTable reports. If you frequently build formula-based or PivotTable reports, join this session to learn how Power Query and Power Pivot can help. Learning objectives: (1) identify which tool in Excel helps to import and transform data; (2) state the process for relating tables in Power Pivot; and (3) recall a benefit of using Power Query and Power Pivot when building PivotTables.
