PH 242 Health Services Administration

Recent shifts in US healthcare policy toward reimbursement structures that incent high quality and efficient care shift the focus from volume to value, increase revenue and cost pressures, and push leaders in public health to do more with less. Managing for program outcomes and financial soundness has become ever more demanding. The goal of the Health Services Administration course is to enable students to make value enhancing decisions.

This course begins with teaching students the basics of financial accounting and understanding financial statements, then turns to managerial accounting to develop skills related to operational budgeting, capital budgeting, and project budgeting, and then ties these management skills to the student’s own work, focusing on the business case for the Practicum.
