This in-person workshop is part of the Kansas Financial Indicator Project for Kansas Critical Access Hospitals, sponsored by the Kansas FLEX program. We have engaged Eide Bailly to lead this project. Webinars were held in November and December 2019. During these webinars, we shared the top financial indicators recommended for monitoring and benchmarks for each indicator. Throughout the presentations, facility-specific performance levels were identified. The graphic presentation of this information highlighted the differences in performance levels amongst providers and the fact that some providers are able to outperform the benchmarks.
