Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Thoroughly revised, this third edition of Financial Management of Health Care Organizations offers an introduction to the most-used tools and techniques of health care financial management. Comprehensive in scope, the book covers a broad range of topics that include an overview of 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.

"This new edition of Financial Management of Health Care Organizations builds on the excellent contents of its prior editions, by again simplifying complex health care financial concepts in ways its targeted audience can truly comprehend. It is notably rich with discussions of contemporary issues and is structured in a way that makes for enhanced instructional flexibility and practical adaptation. The authors continue to demonstrate a keen understanding of the challenging issues of the day."
Dalton A. Tong, MBA, CPA, Senior Associate, Health Policy and Management, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

"The third edition of Financial Management of Health Care Organizations continues to provide in-depth and cogent understanding of the important financial topics, including financial accounting, managerial accounting, capital and operating budgeting, revenue flows, and cost management, that health care executives and managers must have. This text has been a valuable resource for my graduate students as well as clinical and non-clinical managers in executive education settings."
Mark Covaleski, PhD, MBA, Robert Beyer Professor of Managerial Accounting and Control, and Professor of Health Care Financial Management, School of Business, University of Wisconsin at Madison

I recieved an A in both financial and managerial accounting. Yet this book is extremely confusing to me. Don't waste your money! My teacher ordered the answer manual and it doesn't even explain how the answers were calculated. In my opinion, the authors are lazy and need to reevaluate this entire book.

Its a book. A book I had to buy for a class but it is an easy read for those not as financially minded. It doesn't go into much depth in any one area.

This book was recommended as a suitable textbook for a Master's in Health Administration financial management course I teach in the Caribbean.
The basic material is sound and the examples good and useful although I would like to have more cases provided. Also, although written in the USofA there could be more international examples. I would also like more information on the IFRS - its purpose and rules - as this is the governing body of accounting regulation.
The book is easy to read and I would recommend its use.

Wow, I am a nursing not a finance major and found this book, especially, the step by step walk throughs for examples in each chapter. But not for those, I would have been somewhat lost in my finance course.

I would definately recommend.

I bought this book for the Regis University classes NR614 and NR615 on Healthcare accounting and found it to be excellent. I am in the Masters of Nursing Program for Nurse Management. The items in this book are directly applicable to the Nurse Management role.

Required to purchase this book. At times left me wondering and confused and other areas I followed. With that said, I am not a financial expert. as I said it was a mandatory class and book.

This was required for my class but its a far better book than one might imagine. Its a well defined text that helps ensure the reader/student/professional has the tools they need.
