Abstract
Fundamentals of Healthcare Finance, in its second edition, continues to be ideal for individuals needing basic healthcare finance skills. This easy-to-read, content-filled book presents a broad overview of healthcare finance, but focuses on tasks that are essential to the operational management of clinical services, including estimating costs and profits, planning and budgeting, analyzing new equipment purchases, using metrics to monitor operations, and working with financial statements. To assist the learning process, this book includes critical concepts, practical scenarios, self-test questions, industry-practice sidebars, and a running glossary. The second edition has been thoroughly updated, including its many real-world examples. In addition, a section on healthcare reform has been added that includes discussions of value-based purchasing, bundling, accountable care organizations, and medical homes. Additional features in the second edition include updated accounting coverage that conforms to the latest AICPA formats and a new student engagement tool, For Your Consideration sidebars, which present scenarios designed to make students think about issues, sometimes controversial, currently in the news.
