CAREER DEVELOPMENT SERIES: “Financial Management - The Essentials”

The healthcare environment is characterized by constant change – change in the world outside and change in the processes within the organization. Leaders must be prepared to respond to the financial implications of change. To analyze these problems and make decisions successfully, leaders in healthcare organizations must understand basic financial concepts and terminology. This understanding is critical for successful collaboration and good financial decision-making. Essentially, leaders need to understand how processes determine costs, and how revenues and costs influence the financial health of the organization, and how financial health influences the ability of the organization to fulfill its mission.
