The Statement of Operations serves to detail the expenses and revenues of the business for the given time period. This provides a way to compare how the company is spending and gaining money. Depending on how detailed the report is, the depth of the information can be very detailed. The statement is broken down into two major sections, revenues, and incomes. The revenue section can be used to compare current income against the previous years, noting changes and finding the beginnings of trends. The expenses section details how the business is spending money. This can be useful in determining if the business needs to find more efficient ways of spending funds.

The Statement of Operations fits in with other financial statements by documenting the ins and outs of the business. The balance sheet is a clear overview of the business and the statement of operations dives deeper into specifics about income and expense. The statement of changes concerns the assets of the company while the statement of cash flow shows where and how the business spend available cash on hand.

The governing board of Middleville hired a consulting company to evaluate its strategic performance, specifically in the areas of Human Resources, Information Technology, Financing, and Marketing. As part of the consultant’s evaluation, several leaders of Middleville’s units were asked their perspective of the organization’s performance.

 

You are working for the consultant. Your job is to identify the issues from the response that should be considered further by the consultant team and possibly discussed with the governing board and the CEO. The firm has a rule, “Never offer a criticism or negative finding without suggesting how the client organization can correct it,” so you must indicate what sort of correction you would recommend as part of your list. Because you know there were about two (2) dozen other interviews, you decide you should rank your issues in importance, to make sure the most critical are discussed.

 

Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you: Explain the governing board’s role in these strategic initiatives, determining its responsibility and involvement. Evidence-based management means that operational and strategic decisions are made based upon the evidence that goals and objectives are actually being met. Quantitative measurements must be identified and measured. This data is then used to evaluate the HCO’s performance. Name three (3) performances Middleville can use to measure its success in providing quality healthcare to the community, and identify quantifiable, measureable indicators that can be used to do so. Explain the importance of each performance measurement. Given the statistics of Middleville and its two (2) competitors provided in Table 1, recommend to the HCO what areas it should focus on to maintain its competitive market share as well as continue to provide healthcare to the community in the 21st century. Some of Middleville’s Board members are very interested in pursuing advanced technology systems over the next five (5) years, while others are concerned about the enormous expense and need assurance that the investment in technology will be worthwhile. In both monetary and process terms, describe the costs and benefits associated with implementing EMR and associated health data systems. Lay out a plan for how various systems can be implemented. Middleville has faced many challenges in recruiting and retaining nurses and other clinical employees. The economy has hit the area very hard and budgetary limitations have reduced the amount of money available for salary increases. The Board knows it needs to provide other benefits to their valued employees. Provide at least two (2) suggestions to Human Resources to promote employee satisfaction and, therefore, retain experienced personnel. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:

a.      Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.

b.     Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.

c.      Include a reference page. Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.

FIRST ASSIGNMENT: 

 In response to federal policy and service requirements, health insurance plans are increasingly developing high-deductible insurance policies and narrow networks. These types of policies require the consumer to pay more out of pocket. To portray this in a positive light, this trend has been labeled as “consumer-based” to suggest that the consumer must pay more from their own funds, and thus, encourage consumers to make better health care choices. On the other hand, this could be labeled as a burden on the consumer.

Title: Consumer and Provider Costs 

Write a 350- to 525-word article that identifies and evaluates the impact that federal or state health care policies have on consumer costs. Explore both positive and negative effects.

Publish the article on your own social media account (e.g., LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.), or post it on a health care message board of your choice.

Include a citation of your article in your assignment.

Cite 3 reputable references to support your assignment (e.g., trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality).

SECOND ASSIGNMENT

As the industry adopts these standards for the efficiency and effectiveness of the nation’s healthcare system, the use of electronic data interchange will improve.Review http://www.cms.hhs.gov/HIPAAGenInfo/IT SystemsBased on your proposed project’s organizational structure and the geographical locations of Mission Hospital, Golden Age Hospital and the Community Clinic, recommend the major components of an IT system that can best provide for the communication needs within and between the organization units.Identify and define your requirements from the system subject to the ethical requirements of HIPAA (see above).Transform the theoretical and general aspects as covered and based in the case paper, to a “Board-meeting” presentation.  Demonstrate the culmination of your understanding and your ability to identify the key points of your case work, and transform them into relevant slides utilizing Microsoft PowerPoint software (PPT).
