Ratio analysis

Write a 4-6 page paper in which you discuss the value of ratio analysis in decision making for health care organizations. Complete the following in your paper:

o Discuss the meaning of ratio analysis in healthcare.

o Pick only *one (1) ratio from EACH major group* from the financial statements. (e.g. Current ratio,

ROE, Debt to equity, ALOS)

*Major Groups:* o

o *Liquidity ratios* (Current ratio, Days Cash-on-Hand, Quick Ratio)

o *Profitability ratios* (ROE, ROA, Total Margin, Operating Margin)

o *Leverage/Capital Structure Ratios* (Debt ratio, Equity ratio, Debt to Equity Ratio)

o *Nonfinancial Ratios* (Occupancy rate, payer mix, ALOS, Expense per discharge, FTE per bed, HMO penetration)

o Discuss one (1) ratio (from EACH major group) using the following criteria:

o What is the meaning of each ratio?

o Evaluate the meaning of the ratio related to the financial health of the health care organization. **Show the calculations.**

o Explain the factors that affect the results related to the financial health of the organization.

You can also utilize the sample Help4UHMO Organization financial statements (located under week 6) or a real-life health care organization to evaluate by researching their financial statements. Show relevant calculations.

21. When installing fiber optics, some companies will install a sonet ring; a full loop of cable connecting multiple locations. This is used so that if any part of the cable is damaged it does not interrupt service, since there is a second connection to the hub. A company has 5 buildings. Costs (in thousands of dollars) to lay cables between pairs of buildings are shown below. Find the circuit that will minimize cost:

a. Using Nearest Neighbor starting at building A

b. Using Repeated Nearest Neighbor

c. Using Sorted Edges

## Case Study of Physician Practice Management/Relative Value Unit Analysis

Case Study of Physician Practice Management/Relative Value Unit Analysis

This assignment will be submitted to Turnitin™.**Instructions**

**Assessment #6: Case Study of Physician Practice Management and Relative Value Unit Analysis (15%)** **DUE-Sunday at Midnight**

In this assessment, you will evaluate the physicians’ practice financial condition based on the following Relative Value Unit (RVU) calculations and analysis:

- Average and Marginal Costs per RVU,
- Total Average Cost,
- Total Marginal Cost per CPT code, and
- Analyzing the information to assist the physicians in using these costs appropriately and making informed decisions.

You will be graded based on your understanding of the calculations, the accuracy of your calculations, the validity of your conclusions and your ability to clearly communicate your analysis. To complete this assignment, follow these steps:

- Review the article
**How Managerial Accountants Make Physician’s Practices More Profitable** - From this financial information, calculate the three RVU calculations:
- Average and Marginal Costs per RVU,
- Total Average Cost, and
- Total Marginal cost per CPT code.
- In proper APA format, write a 3-5 page paper (include a cover and reference page not included in page count). For each RVU calculation, in a paragraph:
- Calculate the costs,
- Show your calculations, and
- Write a conclusion about the physician practice’s financial condition and discuss how you can assist the physicians in using these costs in making informed decisions.

*Please use headings for each paragraph and category to decipher the discussion and organize the paragraphs.

**Please post your assignment as a Microsoft Word document.

Use the following assumptions:

Assume that during the FY2016 year, Lovely Life LLC historical costs were $750,000 when 11,000 RVUs were produced and $950,000 when 14,000 RVUs were produced. The contract specifies that the number of RVUs per service CPT code are five (5).
