Details:

As health care costs continue to soar, the financial structure
of health care organizations remains in the forefront of public
discussion. Some would argue that finance is exerting too much influence
on the structure of health care organizations and services to the
detriment of quality of care and patient safety. Others vehemently
disagree noting that being financially aware is creating efficient forms
of health care services that are beneficial to patients. There are also
specific advocates for both for-profit and non-profit structures. In
this assignment, you will analyze the role of finance in determining the
structure of health care organizations and health care services.
