Review Essentials of Health Care Finance



The book, “Essentials of Health Care Finance” is a niche-specific material for financial literacy. It expertly focuses on the finance theory and its practical application to the health care sector. The book recognizes that the U.S. health care system is complex and expansive, making just any financial approach seem inadequate. 

The book has been updated to cater to the most relevant data, real-world examples of financial issues, and financial ratio standards. It goes into an in-depth discussion of economics, accounting, and financial topics grounded steadily in the health care industry. 

Readers agree that the book is relevant to language that can easily be understood. It brings to the table the ICD-10 coding and provides comprehensive coverage of the impact of the Affordable Care Act.
