Summary of Work
The main activity conducted by this working group is the annual HCA Agency Benchmarking Survey. The survey provides agencies with benchmark data for key parameters in the areas of finance/client billing, human resources and business development, as well as assessing general trends in healthcare communications.
Other activities of the group vary depending on the latest trends identified in the survey. This year there will be a particular focus on procurement, with the sub-committee hosting a round table discussion to build on the findings of previous surveys. Our aim is to see if we can help agencies and procurement teams to reach a better understanding of each others’ goals and priorities and identify straightforward, practical ways in which we can move closer towards mutually beneficial outcomes.
