Journal entries and month end closing will be performed by Medical Finance. Practice Plan personnel will be able to: Access Inquiry screens to view account activity Access Reporting screens to generate standard Balance Sheet and Income Statement reports Practice Plans write checks to pay expenses and other bills. Practice Plans will submit check requests through WEBBA, and USC AP/Disbursement will make the payment. Some of the changes you can expect in Finance (1 of 2)
11 Today Tomorrow Some Practice Plans invoice physicians for a portion of the clinic overhead. Practice Plans will cover the cost of approved clinic expenses, and can internally cost allocate expenses to physicians for expenses, if part of the incentive plan. Doctors will not be writing checks to the practice to cover expenses. Practice Plans record and track assets in various ways. Assets purchased by the Practice Plans will be maintained in Lawson by Medical Finance according to USC asset management policies. Practice Plans can conduct inquiries and run reports to view activity. Some Practice Plans use accrual basis accounting and some use cash basis accounting. USC Care Medical Group, Inc. will use cash basis accounting for the first year. Accrual based financials will be available after phase 2 of install. Some of the changes you can expect in Finance (2 of 2)

Cash basis of accounting until experience levels are determined Detailed asset tracking and depreciation capability Organization Chart Structure Establish Chart of Accounts Establish Organization Structure Manage GL Load FY 2010 Budgets Load GL Balance Sheet Beginning Balances Transaction Processing Cash Receipt load to GL from new IDX Cash Receipt load to GL from old IDX Payroll load to GL from University Payroll System Expense load to GL from Webba University System Lawson Finance
18 How will the department use it?

Standard GL and AM Lawson Reporting and Inquiry capability Standard Configured Lawson Reports to provide Management with reporting at a consolidated or divisional level Automated integration for Lawson modules Lawson Finance
20 What is the scope and how will it be used? Revenue will be automatically interfaced from the new IDX system to the Lawson GL on a daily basis. This interface will use a crosswalk to map revenue from your IDX Divisions and/or Billing Areas to your Clinical Accounting Units in Lawson. Non-payroll expenses will be automatically interfaced from WEBBA to the Lawson GL on a daily basis. This interface will post purchasing expenses from WEBBA in Lawson. Nonclinical academic and research expenses recorded in WEBBA will also be included. How will the department use it? These interfaces will occur automatically on a daily basis. There is no action needed from the departments to post revenue and expenses in Lawson. Revenue and Expense Interfaces
21 What else is in it for you? These interfaces will allow P/L reporting in Lawson that includes clinical revenue from IDX and expenses from WEBBA. Consolidated Clinical and Non-Clinical reporting will also be possible for each department in Lawson with these interfaces. Revenue and Expense Interfaces
22 What is being installed? The Lawson Human Resources and Payroll modules What is the scope and how will it be used? The Lawson Human Resource and Payroll systems will act as a shadow system to the USC Payroll system. The USC payroll system will send employee demographic, payroll gross wage and general ledger allocation information to Lawson for anyone residing or being paid out of the Clinical Departments at USC. No transactions will be entered into Lawson. The USC system will be the system of record for this data. Updates from USC Payroll to Lawson will be made on a daily and pay period basis. The Clinical pay override process will be built into the Lawson system. How will the department use it? The Lawson system will be used for reporting and for storing Clinical Pay overrides. It has been set up to mirror all USC systems’ data attributes and coding structure. Human Resources and Payroll Interface
23 What else is in it for you? USC Payroll wage expense allocation information will be interfaced to the Lawson GL system and available for income statement reporting. You will be able to review allocations by account in the Lawson GL system and drill back to the Lawson Payroll system to identify the employee wage expenses which account for those amounts. This is not currently available in the USC Webba GL system. The Lawson GL system will store Payroll clinical expense wage allocations by Cost Center, which today is not available in the USC Webba GL system. Workforce analysis and reporting will be available to provide information useful in analysis of headcount, compensation and turnover for the Clinical departments.

Medical Finance Team: Question and Answer Session 24
25 Frequently Asked Questions – Finance (1 of 3) QWill the Practice Plans have access to modify the General Ledger? ANo, changes to the GL will be made by Medical Finance. We are working on procedures for departments to request journals and will communicate them when they are available. QWhat reports will be available in Lawson? AOn July 1 st, there will be two standard reports available: a standard balance sheet and an income statement that includes clinical, non-clinical and combined activity. After July 1 st, additional reports may be created based on the needs of the Practice Plans and USC Care. QWill we be able to report financial results by physician? AOn July 1 st, there will not be a facility in Lawson for reporting results by physician. Expenses can be allocated by cost center for tracking purposes. For Wave 2, currently anticipated to go live February, 2010, the use of Lawson’s Projects and Activities (AC) application is being considered for this purpose. QCan Lawson be used to report all finance activity for the Department? AYes, in order to create the integrated financial income statement for the department, clinical and non-clinical activities will be interfaced into Lawson.
26 Frequently Asked Questions – Finance (2 of 3) QWhat previous balances will be loaded into Lawson? When and how will this take place? ANo historical income statement data will be entered in Lawson. After the corporation books are closed June 30 th, the departments will be asked to provide financial details and we will upload beginning balance sheets into Lawson. QHow will receivables collected by the Practice Plans after July 1st be paid to USC Care? ADates of service after July 1 st will be remitted under the single USC Care tax ID # and remitted to department USC accounts. For services prior to July 1 st, many payors have been billed with the corporations’ tax ID #s and lockbox information. This cash will be remitted by payors to existing corporate banks and lockboxes. A nightly sweep will be performed to transfer the cash to USC Bank of America bank accounts and assigned to the departments clinical accounts.
