Instructor Resources: PowerPoint slides, spreadsheets, and case discussion questions and solutions

Sound financial analysis and decision making require a thorough comprehension of theory, plus the insight and judgment that come from experience. Gapenski’s Cases in Healthcare Finance gives students an opportunity to bridge the gap between learning theoretical concepts in the classroom and apply¬ing those concepts in the real world. By working the cases in this book, students who have a basic understanding of healthcare finance can better prepare for the multitude of problems they will face in practice.

The book’s 32 case studies feature a variety of healthcare settings—from hospitals and clinics to medical practices, home health organizations, integrated delivery systems, and more. Each case focuses on a single issue related to a specific area of financial management, including:

• Cost behavior and profit analysis
• Cost allocation
• Pricing, planning, and budgeting
• Capital acquisition and allocation
• Financial condition analysis and forecasting
• Current asset management
• Business valuation

The cases are supported by an extensive array of ancillary resources—including spreadsheet models for both instructors and students, case questions and solutions, and PowerPoint slides—all substantially updated and reorganized for this edition.

Since 2000, this highly regarded book has been used in healthcare finance courses throughout the United States. Original author Louis C. Gapenski was recognized both nationally and internationally as an expert in healthcare finance. In the sixth edition, authors George H. Pink and Paula H. Song carry forward Dr. Gapenski’s legacy to the field of healthcare administration. As the provision of healthcare continues to evolve and advance, this book will help students develop the insight and judgment they need as future leaders.
