Chief HR Officers (CHROs) are finally getting that seat at the table they have sought for decades. They are meeting regularly with CEOs and CFOs to discuss revenue cycle management and strategic initiatives that will allow their organizations to grow in the new value-based fee environment. They have finally outgrown the perception that they exist to manage only culture and benefits and are suddenly valued as serious executives who are important to the very survival of the healthcare enterprise.
Recent trends in the healthcare industry are driving this transformation in the role of the CHRO. These trends also necessitate that CHROs have a different skill set than they may have had in the past. Healthcare organizations are looking for CHROs with strong business and financial acumen—individuals who are data-savvy and who can initiate talent strategies to ensure organizational success. In this presentation, we will discuss some of these trends impacting the healthcare industry and how they impact the role of the CHRO.
