Inancial Resource Management and Healthcare Reimbursement


There are many factors to be considered when examining organizational finances and making decisions that have long-term effects on a medical practice. In healthcare organizations, there are multiple payers that influence reimbursement. There are external agencies such as the federal or state government, which may set rate limits that impact revenues, and there are outside forces such as marketing structure and competition that influence pricing of healthcare services. Managers who oversee budgets and help to make financial decisions need an overall understanding of the forces shaping this environment.
