Conduct additional research to gather sufficient information to support your analysis.
This Module’s SLP is intended to allow you to apply what you have learned in the background readings regarding performing an analysis of a healthcare organization’s basic financial statement of operations. After completing each part of the background readings, search online for a healthcare organization’s statement of operations (at least two years of data; the organization can be inpatient or outpatient, either real or fictitious). Examine each of the columns and the totals in the statement of operations, using each of the topics introduced in Chapter 3 of the required background reading by Dr. Nowicki (2018), then answer the following: http://web.b.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.trident.edu:2048/ehost/ebookviewer/ebook/ZTAwMHhuYV9fMTgzOTA1OF9fQU41?sid=a82d558f-1035-4bf5-bebc-84ee4929621b@pdc-v-sessmgr06&vid=0&format=EB&rid=1
- How is your chosen organization doing in terms of its overall financial health?
- What is your assessment of the organization’s revenues, expenses, operating income, nonoperating income, etc.? How have each of these lines changed from one year to the next?
- What might the changes signify, and what might be the logical cause of the changes? What would your recommendations be for the following year’s revenue cycle?
- How do changes in the economic market often affect the healthcare financial environment? Do you believe the healthcare revenue cycle models the rises and falls of the larger economy?
