Discussion question on Expanded Equation.

Using the expanded basic accounting equation…. ASSETS (economic resources owned by an entity) = LIABILITIES (creditors’ claims on assets) + EQUITY (owners’ claims on assets)

Apply this equation to the health management context. You may select primary care, specialized medical offices, non-profit health systems (hospitals), for-profit health systems (hospitals), hospice, long term care facilities, military health delivery (any other that you can think of).

In your discussion state the equation, state your selected health service delivery model and describe each part of the equation in relation to the facility.

For instance – an acute care hospital in the equation will have assets what are the example of assets they have on the books? What is a health manager’s responsibility regarding these assets?
