From all the knowledge needed to effectively manage a healthcare organization, one of the most important areas is understanding the business’s current financial condition.
Financial analysis can be defined as the process of assessing the financial condition of a firm. It can be very useful in understanding the financial position of a company. There are a number of different ratios that can be used for this purpose, but each has it benefits and limitations.
Select several ratios you think are valuable when trying to understand the financial condition of a health care company and explain why you have selected them, explaining both the benefits and potential limitations of those ratios.
Then select a healthcare company and use those ratios on that organization. What do these ratios tell you about how that organization?
Be sure to support your statements with logic and argument, citing all sources used. Post your initial response early and check back often to continue the discussion.
