Healthcare finance can be a daunting topic, but the need for continued accessible and thorough education is ever-present and urgent. Authored by Kenneth Kaufman, Managing Director and Chair of Kaufman Hall, this publication provides key issues and a framework that boards of directors and other senior executives can use to ensure high-quality financial decisions in the changing healthcare environment.

Originally published in 2008, the book has been updated to reflect important strategic and financial considerations as healthcare transitions toward a value-based model. Financial concepts and disciplined strategic/financial planning and risk management remain core to the publication, however, because deliberate thinking and controlled contingency planning will help organizations secure a solid market position and continued financial stability.
