Today’s healthcare managers are placing increased emphasis on financial implications when making operating decisions. Understanding Healthcare Finance, Sixth Edition, provides the financial theory and the “nuts and bolts” tools managers need for managerial decision making. Woven throughout the book are tips and techniques for using spreadsheet analyses to make better financial decisions in a variety of provider settings. Real-world examples are used throughout to illustrate concepts. The sixth edition includes coverage of: Medicare reimbursement methods; pay-for-performance and consumer-directed health plans; revenue cycle; credit enhancement; business unit forecasting; merger activity in the health services industry; antitrust regulation; and an overview of derivatives. An online companion website enhances learning and clarifies concepts.
