Nowicki (health administration, Texas State U.) introduces undergraduate and graduate students in healthcare financial management courses, as well as practicing healthcare managers, to the financial management of organizations. This book covers major topics such as working capital, resource allocation, operating revenue, and financial analysis, and focuses on unique aspects of healthcare, such as third-party payers and payment methodologies. This edition has been updated and redesigned to include key points, discussion questions, and on-page definitions. The previously separate book of practice problems has been incorporated and updated, and the chapter on Medicare and Medicaid has been expanded and updated to include information on healthcare reform and new laws regarding fraud and abuse. It includes information on the financial impact of patient safety, public concern about accounting integrity, and a new set of financial statements from HFMA's Introduction to Hospital Accounting, ed. 5.
