Health Care Finance
DEVELOPING FINANCIAL LITERACY AND STRATEGIES
TO SUPPORT HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
The increasing complexity of health care costs can be difficult to decipher. Understanding financial terminology is financial literacy. Reading the numbers and knowing what they represent is financial acumen. Whether you are budgeting and forecasting for a small unit or an entire department, the ability to make sound financial decisions is an essential skill for managers.
However, developing financial acumen is not just for managers—a truly innovative organization is comprised of employees who can think critically about the processes and systems in their department. Cultivating employees' knowledge of the financial underpinnings of systems and processes is more likely to encourage critical thinking and lead to new ideas and solutions in health care delivery.
