OD: Responsibility Center Management: How Innovations Have Changed the Nature of RCM

Recorded on: Thursday, October 10, 2013 1:00 PM ET


Colleges and universities are facing a new era of constrained resources, with cutbacks in state and federal funding, limited growth in tuition revenue, decreased research funding, and increased financial aid to students.
In the search for a solution, many universities are revisiting the way they structure their budgets.  Universities want to optimize decision-making, design better incentives, and ensure efficiency and effectiveness.  This search has led many institutions Responsibility Center Management (RCM).  However, today’s RCM models are not the same as those implemented in decades past.  
Today’s RCM models still offer increased transparency and clarified roles and responsibilities between local and central units, but in addition to those characteristics, dozens of innovations have occurred to free RCM models of the limitations that have fueled anti-RCM rhetoric for years.
This webcast will focus on the innovations and trends that have emerged in contemporary RCM models and how your institution can benefit from them. Interested in learning more?
