This thoroughly revised and updated Fifth Edition of Financial Management of Health Care Organizations offers an introduction to the tools and techniques of health care financial management. The book covers a wide range of topics, including information on the health care system and evolving reimbursement methodologies; health care accounting and financial statements; managing cash, billings, and collections; the time value of money and analyzing and financing major capital investments; determining cost and using cost information in decision-making; budgeting and performance measurement; and pricing.

The revised edition covers new accounting changes for nonprofit hospitals with respect to net asset accounts, and includes an array of new financial statement problem sets for nonprofit hospitals. These changes also required major changes to the recording of financial transactions and implementing the latest financial ratio benchmarks.  

With the newest payment developments in the health care landscape, this new edition updates changes to  Medicare and commercial payment systems. The passage of the new tax law also impacted hospital capital markets and for-profit hospital tax rates. This latest edition explains the impact of this tax law change on tax-exempt hospital bonds purchased by banks, as well as presenting problem sets featuring the new taxes law. Finally, changes in lease financing reporting are also addressed in this edition.
