Earning the CHFP
The program consists of two modules:
Module I of the CHFP program: HFMA’s Business of Health Care online program:
Includes healthcare finance overview, risk mitigation, evolving payment models, healthcare accounting and cost analysis, strategic finance, and managing financial resources.
Module II of the CHFP Program: HFMA’s Operational Excellence exam:
Includes a number of case studies, each of which presents a complex challenge and questions on how you would address those challenges. The challenges address issues related to the three stakeholder groups: payers, providers and physicians.
The CHFP credential is awarded upon successful completion of the Module 1 end-of-course assessment followed by successful completion of the Module II exam (case study exercises).
