Hey SD, take a look at Understanding Healthcare Financial Management by Louis C. Capenski, 4th ed. I used it during business school. It was a great text because it read easy illustrating calculations and using actual balance sheets, income statements, and case studies from for profit and not-for-profit organizations. It does address recent reimbursement changes. It is a text that I would hate to misplace. For any doc that has aspirations of running his/her own practice or would like to head a department it's a great buy!
Thanks for the recommendation drcrusher (a Star Trek: TNG fan?). I'll take a look at it.
I've been more and more interested in healthcare management lately. Particularly, hospital administration (more along the lines of CEO). I think after a few years of practice I'll try to migrate into management, probably ED director first and then try to work my way up the ladder.
