Healthcare provider organizations are contending with substantial unknowns related to the fate of the Affordable Care Act (and whatever may – or may not – follow it), along with a rapidly changing market impacted by digital transformation and the need for higher levels of organizational performance and efficiency. Amid these changes, more departments within healthcare organizations, including internal audit, are starting to learn more about data analytics to achieve their objectives.
Protiviti’s annual survey of CAEs and internal audit leaders and practitioners across a broad spectrum of industries assesses the state of and current priorities in the internal audit profession. This year, Protiviti has once again partnered with the Association of Healthcare Internal Auditors (AHIA) to analyze more targeted and highly practical insights regarding the unique internal audit challenges for healthcare providers. The results of the 2017 Internal Audit Capabilities and Needs Survey of Healthcare Provider Organizations capture current perceptions in the industry while identifying what CAEs and other internal audit leaders will do to limit the impact of uncertainty while increasing the probability of organizational success.
