Webinar Series

Georgetown University’s Center on Health Insurance Reforms’ (CHIR) webinar series, Understanding Hospital Financing, provides lawmakers with insight into what is driving hospital finances, including how hospitals generate revenue and pressures on operating costs. 

Hospitals play a vital role in delivering health care. As local policymakers seek to improve access to affordable and adequate health care, understanding the factors that influence the financial health of hospitals in their region is key.
