Partners Healthcare Case Study

...Partners HealthCare System (PHS): Transforming Health Care Services Delivery through Information Management Case Description According to government sources, U.S. expenditures on health care in 2009 reached nearly $2.4 trillion dollars ($2.7 trillion by the end of 2010). Despite this vaunting national level of expenditure on medical treatment, death rates due to preventable errors in the delivery of health services rose to approximately 98,000 deaths in 2009. To address the dual challenges of cost control and quality improvement, some have argued that what is needed is an integrated electronic medical record (EMR) system and associated information technology-enabled processes. While the information systems currently available may meet the needs of the industry, the question remains as to what is required within and by the health care services organization to achieve a satisfactory response to these dual challenges. At the present time, Partners Healthcare System (PHS) maintains a centralized digital records library on over 5 million patients, augmented in real-time by data, textual comments, and artifacts (i.e. x-rays, MRI’s, EKG’s, etc.) as these patients visit doctor offices, receive hospital-based or home care services, and obtained prescription medications and other therapies. Procedures are in place to ensure the data quality and integrity of these patient files. Going forward, any health care professional across the network can access a patient’s complete...

Mexican Healthcare Case Study

...Mexico has made great strides in trying to provide healthcare for its 115 plus million citizens. Healthcare in Mexico comes in three different and distinct varieties. There are the government-run institutions that provide limited health-care benefits administered by the Ministry of Health at very long wait times. There is the upper-echelon private sector, which represents a very small percentage of Mexicans and is comprised of individuals whose health-care funding is met through private insurance carriers at a price most Mexicans cannot afford. Then there are the emerging low cost private sector healthcare providers such as Primedic, whom provide access to select healthcare services via membership plans at a very reasonable price. While these three different systems tackle Mexico’s healthcare needs in various ways, Primedic and the emerging “entrepreneurial niche sector” is a perfect example of how entrepreneurs can play a significant role in improving and reshaping the healthcare system Mexico. Entrepreneurship simply by its nature tends to solve/create a solution to a need/concern that hasn’t already been met. With the current structure of Mexico’s healthcare system, many gaps in coverage and services provided exist. Primedic and other entrepreneurial oriented private healthcare companies have capitalized on these gaps and along with the growing demand of consumer-driven health care across Mexico. These companies provided needed services and provide opportunities for......

Financial Statement Analysis Case Study

...Financial Statement Analysis Case Study Blockbuster versus Netflix By Deng Pan December 9, 2013 Financial Statement Analysis is one of the mainly used methods to evaluate a business. The Return of Equity (ROE) basically provides a big picture of how the business runs. This ratio can be decomposed to three parts: 1) Profit margin (Net income / Total revenue) 2) Asset turnover (Total revenue / Assets) 3) Leverage ratio (Assets / Equity) These ratios represent the profitability, activity, and solvency of the business respectively, which are the three main categories that analysts look at to approach the coverall value of the business. In this paper, I would follow this method, and give the vertical and horizontal analysis of Blockbuster Video’s and Netflix’s performance through 2001 to 2009. Blockbuster Video Business Introduction Blockbuster started their home movie and video game rental services business in 1985. They originally provided the rental service through owned franchised video rental shops, and later added DVD-by-mail, streaming, video on demand and cinema theater into the service category. The company generates the revenue from the movie and video rental fees. The main costs of the revenue are the store rental expense, and the inventory cost. After experiencing a fast growth in late 1980’s and 1990’s, the company peaked in 2004 with up to 60,000 employees and more than 9,000 stores. [1][2] However, if we look at their books from 2001 to 2009...

Financial Statement Analysis Study Guide

...Financial Statement Analysis Financial Reporting & Analysis Questions Professor Mahoney Spring 2013 Chapter 1: Introduction to Financial Reporting I. Questions 2. How does the concept of consistency aid in the analysis of financial statements? What type of accounting disclosure is required if this concept is not applied? Consistency allows for the same accounting principle from period to period. A change in principle requires statement disclosure. 3. The president of your firm, Lesky and Lesky, has little background in accounting. Today, he walked into your office and said, “A year ago we bought a piece of land for $100,000. This year, inflation has driven prices up by 6%, and an appraised just told us we could easily resell the land for $115,000. Yet our balance sheet still shows it at $100,000. It should be valued at $115,000. That’s what it’s worth. Or, at a minimum, at $106,000.” Respond to this statement with specific reference to the accounting principles applicable in this situation. The concept of historical cost determines the balance sheet valuation of land. The realization concept requires that a transaction has occurred for the profit to be recognized. 4.

...Managerial Communication Participant Name: Case Title: Main Problem and Reasons for the Problem Solution/Recommendations 1 | Page Case Analysis Form Muhammad Jehanzaib Khan (ERP 11660) Smith Financial Corporation (SFC) There were several fundamental flaws from SFC’s senior management and Miller, which eventually led to his termination. The old resource in the S&P had 3-15 years of experience in the firm and despite the post being vacant for over 1 year and none of them weren’t given a chance to lead this department and it was directly under Jones. The senior management hired Miller with a goal to restructure and reorganize the Information Department; the real need of it was not discussed with the existing team members. Problems with Miller’s Management and Communication Style: Since the very first task assigned to Miller, he made it clear that he wanted things to be done his way and imposed his decisions on the staff. Miller was given too much liberty and as he exploited the freedom given to him; a sense of disownment amongst the staff arose. Without considering the fact that SFC had invested in a new software platform Miller showed no sensitivity to the company’s investment and staff. Although Miller took comments of the data management team, in reality he adopted an arrow approach claiming the staff’s comments/feedback as mere excuses, by which he lost his credibility. This approach de-motivated the staff and it was seen that a few people associated with Lotus left SFC....

Financial Reporting Case Study

...Tamira is feeling pressured by her boss to provide up-to-date financial statements for FY ending December 31, 2010. She has only 24 hours to post adjusting entries to appropriately show her company’s correct financials for her boss’s dinner meeting with a bank. Tamira knows that the financial statements will not be ready in time for the dinner meeting with the bank because she does not have enough time to prepare and post the adjusted entries. Under the pressure from her boss and a tight 24-hour deadline, Tamira decides to estimate many expense accrual accounts. She uses a low estimate, which in turn will make the company’s financials look better than what they actually are. This is an unethical decision. Tamira is not following GAAP. The aim of GAAP is to make the information in financial statements is reliable, relevant, and comparable. By using low estimates, she is overstating her company’s financials, which could ultimately result in her company securing a bank loan. The pressure put on Tamira by her boss to provide update financials in 24 hours caused her to make an unethical decision. Tamira could have taken several different courses of actions that ultimately support GAAP principles. She should have communicated with her boss that she did not have enough time to complete the up to date financials for FY 2010. If it was so important for her company to secure a bank loan, it should be Tamira’s top priority to provide her boss with accurate information. She should have...

...Financial Reporting and Ethical Standards Debra Castagnetta HCS/405 November 7, 2011 Todd Brown Financial Reporting Practices and Ethical Standard In health care finance keeping financial documents have become more detailed and the need for accuracy has increased and many guidelines have been established to ensure there are competencies, and ethical standards are upheld in financial management in health care organizations (Paul, 2008). The Four Elements of Financial Management Health care organizations and other organizations require an array of management actions to operate effectively (Baker & Baker, 2010). To accomplish these actions the four elements of financial management must take place. The financial manager must identifies the objectives and steps through planning, the financial manager must ensure that the organization follow the plan by using the controlling element, the financial manager must organize and direct by deciding how to use the resources of the organization, and provide daily supervision (Baker & Baker, 2010). In addition, the financial manager must make informed choice through the element of decision- making (Baker & Baker, 2010). The General Accepted Accounting Practices In order to have guidelines in the principles of accounting, it is a mandatory requirement that health care organizations and other organizations use the General Accepted Accounting Principles, also known as the GAAP (Paul, 2008).

Case Study Healthcare Finance

...1. Using the historical data as a guide, construct a pro forma (forecasted) profit and loss statement for the clinic's average month for all of 2014 assuming the status quo. With no change in volume (utilization), is the clinic projected to make a profit? The below pro forma profit and loss statement states that the clinic is currently operating at a loss of $3,173 per month, considering that subtraction of fixed and variable costs. The contribution margin per month totals $48,138 or divided out equals to $35.67 per visit. The hospital is not sustaining itself at this point or even paying for its fixed costs. 2. Now consider the clinic's situation without the new marketing program. How many additional daily visits must be generated to break even? Construct a breakeven graph that can be included in your report. Without the new marketing plan, the clinic will need an additional 19.8 - 20 patients each day to break even. 40.66(net revenue/visit)X =79,059 X= total number of visits that are needed to break even X= 1944.39  1944  Average # of JanFeb 1,350 visits 3. Repeat the Question 2 analysis, but now assume that the new marketing program is implemented. With the new marketing plan, the breakeven point is at an additional 32 patients visits per day. 40.66(net revenue per visit)X =93,861 (92,511-1350,)/30days= 31.94patients per day  32 patients per day 4.

Financial Detective Case Study Analysis

...Financial Detective - group case study Introduction Within this case we will be analysing two companies within same industry while also matching the descriptive portfolio given to the appropriate financial statement figures. Health products Whilst studying the financial statement provided we noticed that there are some figures which stand out straight away in relation between both companies providing health products. One of the figures which gasped our attention was the ‘intangibles’ figure, as it is significantly greater for company b in comparison to company a. As seen in the written description on the two company portfolios, company B is said to have a greater sum invested in research and development than company A which has no information with regards current R&D operations. Additionally, the net fixed assets are greater for company A, which was automatically spotted as company 2 which is also described to be a “greater diversified health product company”. This would in fact lead to the need for different types of machinery in order to produce a broader product range. Conclusively, due to the above analysis we believe that Company 1 is B, Company 2 is therefore A. Beer products During our study of the financial statement in relation to the beer sector, we have identified that company C has a much greater net fixed assets which indicates that company 1 is most likely to link with this financial information. Additionally, as seen in the selling general and......

Case Study: Partners Healthcare Systems

...Case Study: Partners HealthCare Systems Case Study: Partners HealthCare Systems Partners HealthCare is a non-profit, health system located in Boston that created a data based transformation (Davenport, 2013). It integrated a new system that aligned the participating organizations to cohesively run as one and to help shape the future of the organization. The system didn’t stop there as it was responsible for bettering the patient financing experience and the delivery of healthcare information to other organizations (Davenport, 2013). The initial goal of the organization was making patient care more affordable and accountable by providing integrated, evidence based, patient-oriented care. Problem Identified Partners HealthCare, which was created by major contributing hospitals and medical facilities in the Northeast, initially began as a way to focus on the patient needs; however, the company soon found themselves separating from their initial goal. There was more than one problem identified within the realms of the company. There are three main issues that this case study produced. The first outlying issue is called Alert/Warning Fatigue (Davenport, 2013). This derives from alerts that were placed in the system to warn doctors of notices that could be anything from mixing prescriptions to simple notifications that most doctors already knew or was not in their field of study. A second issue that requires resolution to create a successful working system is the......
