Essentials of Health Care Finance, now in its Seventh Edition, provides health management students and executives with the authoritative text on financial decision-making in the health care industry.

This trusted resource explores finance theory and its practical application in health care across a full range of facilities, from hospitals and home health agencies to skilled nursing facilities, surgical centers and private physician practices.

The vast, complex nature of the U.S. health care system renders traditional approaches to finance insufficient. Importantly, Essentials of Health Care Finance couches its discussion of economics, accounting and financial topics firmly within the unique context of the health care industry.

Relevant and readable, this Seventh Edition of Essentials of Health Care Finance is fully revised and updated to include real-world examples of financial problems and solutions; actionable benchmarking data; plus learning objectives that highlight key skills and concepts.
