Hospitals and Healthcare firms continue to come under increased scrutiny by regulators and industry watchers. Form 990 Schedule H is one of the areas in which the inquiries have presented a series of challenges. It is often described as “An opportunity for a business to tell its’ story”. However, many believe that due to some of the unique facets of the business of healthcare, it’s difficult to tell their complete stories because the form fails to address some important issues such as Executive Comp, Revenues, Expenses and Balance sheets, Board issues etc. It’s clear that the business of healthcare requires a different set of variables to be taken into consideration that are not always present in the rest of the business world.

In addition to up the minute regulatory update, their team of experts will walk you through Form 990 Schedule H line by line, helping you to best tell your story. In addition to the live presentation, attendees will be invited to submit questions directly to the speakers to be addressed during the event. The Knowledge Group’s Form 990: Schedule H for Healthcare Firms & Hospitals: Practice Guidance is a must attend event for Hospitals and Healthcare systems grappling with this complex new regulatory activity.
