(From Hosp Pharm 1995 Jul;30(7):596)Hospital Costs: The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).

Impact of a DRG-based hospital financing system on quality and outcomes of care in Italy. (1/102)

OBJECTIVE: To examine potential changes in quality of care associated with a recent financing system implementation in Italy: in 1995, hospital financing reform implemented in Italy included the introduction of a DRG-based hospital financing system with the goals of controlling the growth of hospital costs and making hospitals more accountable for their productivity. DATA SOURCES: Hospital discharge abstract data from 1993 through 1996 for all hospitals (N=32) in the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region of Italy. Regional population data were used to calculate rates. STUDY DESIGN: Changes between 1993 and 1996 in hospital admissions, length of stay, mortality rates, severity of illness, and readmission rates were studied for nine common medical and surgical conditions: appendicitis, diabetes mellitus, colorectal cancer, cholecystitis, bronchitis/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bacterial pneumonia, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, and hip fracture. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The total number of ordinary hospital admissions decreased from 244,581 to 204,054 between 1993 and 1996, a population-based decrease of 17.3 percent (p<.001). The mean length of stay decreased from 9.1 days to 8.8 days, resulting in a 21.1 percent decrease in hospital bed days (p<.001). Day hospital use increased sevenfold from 16,871 encounters in 1993 to 108,517 encounters in 1996. The largest decrease in hospital admissions among study conditions was a 41 percent decrease for diabetes (from 2.25 per 1,000 in 1993 to 1.31 in 1996, p<.001). For eight of the nine conditions, severity of illness increased. Differences between severity-adjusted expected and observed in-hospital mortality rates were small. CONCLUSIONS: Observed trends showed a decrease in ordinary hospital admissions, an increase in day hospital admissions, and a greater severity of illness among hospitalized patients. There was little or no change in mortality and readmission rates. Administrative data can be used to track changes in patterns of care and to identify potential quality problems deserving further review.  (+info)

The effects of group size and group economic factors on collaboration: a study of the financial performance of rural hospitals in consortia. (2/102)

STUDY QUESTIONS: To determine factors that distinguish effective rural hospital consortia from ineffective ones in terms of their ability to improve members' financial performance. Two questions in particular were addressed: (1) Do large consortia have a greater collective impact on their members? (2) Does a consortium's economic environment determine the degree of collective impact on members? DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SETTING: Based on the hospital survey conducted during February 1992 by the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital-Based Rural Health Care project of rural hospital consortia. The survey data were augmented with data from Medicare Cost Reports (1985-1991), AHA Annual Surveys (1985-1991), and other secondary data. STUDY DESIGN: Dependent variables were total operating profit, cost per adjusted admission, and revenue per adjusted admission. Control variables included degree of group formalization, degree of inequality of resources among members (group asymmetry), affiliation with other consortium group(s), individual economic environment, common hospital characteristics (bed size, ownership type, system affiliation, case mix, etc.), year (1985-1991), and census region dummies. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: All dependent variables have a curvilinear association with group size. The optimum group size is somewhere in the neighborhood of 45. This reveals the benefits of collective action (i.e., scale economies and/or synergy effects) and the issue of complexity as group size increases. Across analyses, no strong evidence exists of group economic environment impacts, and the environmental influences come mainly from the local economy rather than from the group economy. CONCLUSION: There may be some success stories of collaboration among hospitals in consortia, and consortium effects vary across different collaborations. RELEVANCE/IMPACT: When studying consortia, it makes sense to develop a typology of groups based on some performance indicators. The results of this study imply that government, rural communities, and consortium staff and steering committees should forge the consortium concept by expanding membership in order to gain greater financial benefits for individual hospitals.  (+info)

Financial and organizational determinants of hospital diversification into subacute care. (3/102)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the financial, market, and organizational determinants of hospital diversification into subacute inpatient care by acute care hospitals in order to guide hospital managers in undertaking such diversification efforts. STUDY SETTING: All nongovernment, general, acute care, community hospitals that were operating during the years 1985 through 1991 (3,986 hospitals in total). DATA SOURCES: Cross-sectional, time-series data were drawn from the American Hospital Association's (AHA) Annual Survey of Hospitals, the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) Medicare Cost Reports, a latitude and longitude listing for all community hospital addresses, and the Area Resource File (ARF) published in 1992, which provides county level environmental variables. STUDY DESIGN: The study is longitudinal, enabling the specification of temporal patterns in conversion, causal inferences, and the treatment of right-censoring problems. The unit of analysis is the individual hospital. KEY FINDINGS: Significant differences were found in the average level of subacute care offered by investor-owned versus tax-exempt hospitals. After controlling for selection bias, financial performance, risk, size, occupancy, and other variables, IO hospitals offered 31.3 percent less subacute care than did NFP hospitals. Financial performance and risk are predictors of IO hospitals' diversification into subacute care, but not of NFP hospitals' activities in this market. Resource availability appears to expedite expansion into subacute care for both types of hospitals. CONCLUSIONS: Investment criteria and strategy differ between investor-owned and tax-exempt hospitals.  (+info)

Analysis of the rationale for, and consequences of, nonprofit and for-profit ownership conversions. (4/102)

OBJECTIVES: To examine percursors to private hospitals conversion, both from nonprofit status to for-profit status and from for-profit to nonprofit status, as well as the effect of hospital conversions on hospital profitability, efficiency, staffing, and the probability of closure. DATA SOURCES: The Health Care Financing Administration's Medicare Cost Reports and the American Hospital Association's Annual Survey of Hospitals. STUDY DESIGN: Bivariate and multivariate analyses comparing conversion hospitals to nonconversion hospitals over time were conducted. DATA EXTRACTION METHODS: The study sample consisted of all private acute care hospital conversions that occurred from 1989 through 1992. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Hospitals that converted had significantly lower profit margins prior to converting than did nonconversion hospitals. This was particularly true for nonprofit to for-profit conversions. After converting, both nonprofit and for-profit hospitals significantly improved their profitability. Nonprofit to for-profit hospital conversions were associated with a decrease in the ratio of staff to patients. No association was found between for-profit to nonprofit conversion and staff-to-patient ratios. The difference seems partially attributed to the fact that nonprofit hospitals that converted had higher staff ratios than the industry average. For-profit to nonprofit hospital conversions were associated with an increase in the ratio of registered nurses to patients and administrators to patients, despite the fact that nonprofit and for-profit hospitals did not differ in these ratios. CONCLUSIONS: The improvement in financial performance following hospital conversions may be a benefit to the community that policymakers want to consider when regulating hospital conversions.  (+info)

Health reform and hospital financing in Georgia. (5/102)

AIM: To analyze hospital financing and delivery of inpatient services, financial requirements of the hospitals, and their ability to meet these requirements were determined. METHODS: Data on financial performance of 41 hospitals were collected using a standardized questionnaire. Patient survey, group discussions with hospital administrators, and interviews with policy-makers were also used. RESULTS: Thirty-three hospitals were unable to recover full costs, and 29 were unable to recover full costs excluding capital consumption cost. Cost recovery rate (CRR) of full costs for 14 hospitals was less than 70% and CRR of full costs minus capital consumption costs was less than 70% for 8 hospitals. Collected actual revenues comprised 75.2% of hospitals' full costs. Mean CRR for the sample was 78.6+25.2%. General and long-term hospitals recover 64.8% of their costs, but pediatric and specialized hospitals collected revenues to cover full costs excluding the capital consumption costs. Medium-sized hospitals recovered only 63. 5% of full costs. The hospitals operated with low efficiency, low occupancy rates (31%), and excessive staffing (1.5 physicians per occupied bed). They employed salary equalization policies, which increased the share of fixed costs, perpetuated the oversupply of medical personnel, and yielded low pays. Hospitals charged in excess of their officially accounted costs but, and due to the low collection rates, cost recovery rates were below the officially accounted costs (87.6%). CONCLUSIONS: Low official reimbursement rates and patient unawareness of official hospital costs creates conducive environment for shifting major turnover of the real hospital costs to the patients, resulting in illegal patients charging.  (+info)

Paying a premium: how patient complexity affects costs and profit margins. (6/102)

OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND: Tertiary medical centers continue to be under extreme pressure to deliver high-complexity care, but paradoxically there is considerable pressure within these institutions to reduce their emphasis on tertiary care and refocus their efforts to develop a more community-like practice. The genesis of this pressure is the perceived profitability of routine surgical activity when compared with more complex care. The purpose of this study is to assess how the total cost and profit (loss) margin can vary for an entire trauma service. The authors also evaluate payments for specific trauma-related diagnostic-related groups (DRGs) and analyze how hospital margins were affected based on mortality outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors analyzed the actual cost of all trauma discharges (n = 692) at their level I trauma center for fiscal year 1997. Data were obtained from the trauma registry and the hospital cost accounting system. Total cost was defined as the sum of the variable, fixed, and indirect costs associated with each patient. Margin was defined as expected payments minus total cost. The entire population and all DRGs with 10 or more patients were stratified based on survival outcome, Injury Severity Score, insurance status, and length of stay. The mean total costs for survivors and nonsurvivors within these various categories and their margins were evaluated. RESULTS: The profit margin on nonsurvivors was $5,898 greater than for survivors, even though the mean total cost for nonsurvivors was $28,821 greater. Within the fixed fee arrangement, approximately 44% of transfers had a negative margin. Both survivors and nonsurvivors become increasingly profitable out to 20 days and subsequently become unprofitable beyond 21 days, but nonsurvivors were more profitable than survivors. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variance in both the costs and margins within trauma-related DRGs. The DRG payment system disproportionately reimburses providers for nonsurvivors, even though on average they are more costly. Because payers are likely to engage in portfolio management, patients can be transferred between hospitals based on the contractual relationship between the payer and the provider. This payment system potentially allows payers to act strategically, sending relatively low-cost patients to hospitals where they use fee-for-service reimbursement and high-cost patients to hospitals where their reimbursement is contractually capped. Although specific to the authors' trauma center and its payer mix, these data demonstrate the profitability of maintaining a level I trauma center and preserving the mission of delivering care to the severely injured.  (+info)

The fall of the house of AHERF: the Allegheny bankruptcy. (7/102)

The $1.3 billion bankruptcy of the Allegheny Health, Education, and Research Foundation (AHERF) in July 1998 was the nation's largest nonprofit health care failure. Many actors and factors were responsible for AHERF's demise. The system embarked on an ambitious strategy of horizontal and vertical integration just as reimbursement from major payers dramatically contracted, leaving AHERF overly exposed. Hospital and physician acquisitions increased the system's debt and competed for capital, which sapped the stronger institutions and led to massive internal cash transfers. Management failed to exercise due diligence in many of these acquisitions. Several external oversight mechanisms, ranging from AHERF's board to its accountants and auditors to the bond market, also failed to protect these community assets.  (+info)

Capital finance and ownership conversions in health care. (8/102)

This paper analyzes the for-profit transformation of health care, with emphasis on Internet start-ups, physician practice management firms, insurance plans, and hospitals at various stages in the industry life cycle. Venture capital, conglomerate diversification, publicly traded equity, convertible bonds, retained earnings, and taxable corporate debt come with forms of financial accountability that are distinct from those inherent in the capital sources available to nonprofit organizations. The pattern of for-profit conversions varies across health sectors, parallel with the relative advantages and disadvantages of for-profit and nonprofit capital sources in those sectors.  (+info)

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A majority of HR professionals describe the financial health of their employees as no better than fair, with young adults experiencing the most financial stress, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) reported today in a new survey. According to SHRMs Employee Financial Stress Survey, employees financial circumstances may be affecting absenteeism. Almost two-fifths of respondents said that employees have missed work in the past 12 months because of a financial emergency.. "The results could signal that financial issues are a growing challenge for employees in many workplaces," said Evren Esen, director of SHRMs survey programs. "Anxiety related to finances could be an increasing source of employee stress that has a direct impact on health care costs, absence and productivity. As a result, money management strategies - including budgeting and investing - may increasingly be considered as a part of workplace stress management and wellness initiatives.". A majority of ...
Is the Mundell-Fleming trilemma alive and well? International co-movement of asset prices takes place alongside synchronized business cycles, complicating the identification of financial spillovers and assessments of monetary policy autonomy. A benchmark for interest rate comovement is to impose the null hypothesis that central banks respond only to the outlook for domestic inflation and output. We show that common approaches used to estimate interest rate spillovers tend to understate the degree of monetary autonomy enjoyed by small open economies with flexible exchange rates. We propose an empirical strategy that partials out those spillovers that are associated with impaired monetary autonomy. Using this approach, we revisit the predictions of the trilemma and find more compelling evidence that flexible exchange rates deliver monetary autonomy than prior work has suggested.

Downloadable! This paper documents the extent of financial linkages between Canada and the United States and explores the impact of changes in U.S. financial conditions on financial conditions and real economic activity in Canada. It shows that close to a quarter of financing by Canadian corporations is raised south of the border. Empirical analysis using structural vector autoregressions establishes that a tightening in U.S. financial conditions has significant implications for real activity in Canada. For example, a percentage point increase in the 3- month T-bill rate, other things being equal, leads to a decline of slightly more than one percentage point in Canadas real GDP growth after 3 quarters. That decline can be decomposed into three channels: the direct financial channel, where the slowdown is attributed to a rising cost of funds for Canadian companies raising capital in the United States; the indirect financial channel, where growth is hampered as financial conditions in Canada tighten in

This paper examines the link between legislative politics, hospital behavior, and health care spending. When trying to pass sweeping legislation, congressional leaders can attract votes by adding targeted provisions that steer money toward the districts of reluctant legislators. This targeted spending provides tangible local benefits that legislators can highlight when fundraising or running for reelection. We study a provision - Section 508 - that was added to the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act (MMA). Section 508 created a pathway for hospitals to apply to get their Medicare payment rates increased. We find that hospitals represented by members of the House of Representatives who voted Yea on the MMA were significantly more likely to receive a 508 waiver than hospitals represented by members who voted Nay. Following the payment increase generated by the 508 program, recipient hospitals treated more patients, increased payroll, hired nurses, added new technology, raised CEO pay, and ...

Downloadable! The research uses three indicators of quality suggested by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to examine factors leading to differentials in quality of hospital care. We find that hospital quality can be explained by the number of beds, the number of employees per bed, hospital financial performance, and whether the hospital is urban or rural. However, these variables are significant for only one measure of quality, procedures implemented in case of heart attack.
Item 2. Management s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our condensed financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our annual report on Form 10-K dated December 31, 2014.

Given an increasingly complex web of financial pressures on providers, studies have examined how the hospitals overall financial health affect different aspects of hospital operation. In our study, we analyze this issue focusing on hospital access and quality by introducing an important aspect of the financial incentives, soft budget constraints (SBC), that takes into account both hospitals current and past financial health as well as their expected financial outlook (i.e., whether there is a sponsoring organization to bail them out). We develop a conceptual framework of SBC by considering the resultant incentives on cost control and quality improvement innovations; and examine the effect of SBC on the following aspects of access and quality: safety net service survival and AMI mortality rates. We find that hospitals with softer budget constraints are less likely to shut down safety net services. In addition, hospitals with softer budget constraints appear to have better mortality outcomes, ...

However, the results of this survey show your time perspective impacts how you make financial decisions. Understanding your time perspective is an important foundation for financial health and should be included in financial literacy training. Below are some of the results:. ...

Prior research has shown that past financial performance and risk-taking proclivity influence firms goal setting and future performance expectations. In this study, we analyze how such factors manifest themselves in the context of the family business. Drawing from the behavioral theory of the firm, we argue that owners-managers of family firms satisfied with their past financial performance will correspondingly upgrade their future performance expectations. Based on strategic reference points theory, we also propose that satisfaction with past performance in family firms will be negatively associated with risk taking. Finally, we conjecture that family firms may exhibit heterogeneity in their risk orientation so that greater risk taking will be positively associated with family firms future performance expectations. The results of structural equation modeling analysis of two combined surveys of family firms supported the hypotheses. ...
PURPOSE: The correlation between simulator-based medical performance and real-world behavior remains unclear. This study explored whether the effects of extended work hours on clinical performance, as reported in prior hospital-based studies, could be observed in a simulator-based testing environment.

The Detroit Lakes city liquor store made a net profit of $524,000 in 2013, down from $662,000 the year before and $888,000 in 2011. It had sales of $5.4 million in 2013, and a profit margin of 9.7 percent. It had sales of $4.9 million and a profit margin of 13.5 percent the year before, and sales of $5.2 million and a profit margin of 17 percent in 2011. On the face of it, that looks like city liquor store net profits are heading in the wrong direction, but city officials say theres more to the story than meets the eye. Non-operating expenses, for example, were $154,000 in 2013, u. ...
Lets first look at the Digital Enterprise Group, thats the desktop processor division. CPU revenues dropped a little over 20% from the previous quarter. Theres nothing "seasonal" about that much of a drop. We know that AMD had essentially a flat quarter, and since their ASPs went up a little, they didnt make a lot more processors than they did the prior quarter, maybe a few less.. Based on initial figures from IDC, the 4Q/1Q drop off was more than usual (about 13% compared to the usual 10%), but even assuming the AMD dropoff was minimal, that would explain most but not all of the revenue drop.. Fortunately, we need not go far for an explanation; Intels gross profit margin declined from 59% to about 55%. Even more significant is that Intel expects its gross profit margin to drop another 5% to about 50% next quarter, so any price cutting/rebate will continue, if not intensify next quarter.. Has Intel had such gross profit margins in the past? Yes, but only when they were having big ...
As general dentists, we must adapt to the new dental economy if we want to maintain our autonomy, remain competitive, and continue to realize enviable profit margins ranging from 30‒60 percent. No wonder venture capitalist, corporate dentistry, and the insurance industry want a bigger slice of the pie. Can you blame them? Follow the money. As a comparison, in 2015, the hotel industry reported a 5 percent net profit margin, grocery chains 1‒2 percent, and the airline industry a hard-earned 5.1 percent. Even Starbucks reported a profit margin of only 11.52 percent in the first quarter of 2016. What do we have in common with these industries? We are in the customer service industry, and patients have a choice of where they want to spend their hard-earned money ...
Post consumer recycled PET plastics (PCR PET) bottles are normally recycled for textiles or garments, carpets, sheets and injection molded goods. However, FDA approved bottle-grade rPET is of a higher quality, has lower contaminants, and has better performance characteristics relative to other grades of rPET. Therefore, in order to capture the value created by bottle-grade rPET it is important to understand the processing of rPET flakes.. Currently textile fibers and filaments comprise about 70% of rPET flake demand where lower quality rPET flakes are adequate. Further growth in this application is limited due to low profit margins. Improved recycling profit margins are possible when alternate applications such as food and nonfood containers, industrial yarn, mono filaments, strapping, film, sheet, and building materials such as foam boards are the targeted end markets for the recycled PET flakes.. These above mentioned higher profit margin end markets require higher quality rPET flakes or ...

A quarterly or annual earnings report provides the clearest picture of a companys financial health. By learning how to read and understand the different financial statements in an earnings report, you can decide if an investment is worth the risk. No single financial statement tells the whole story. You need to take all of the numbers into account to get an accurate picture of the companys current health and future prospects. Here are the most important statements:. A balance sheet presents a picture of the total assets and liabilities held by a company at a specific moment in time. Assets include everything a company owns, from factories to trucks to unsold inventory. Liabilities are everything it owes, including loan payments, salaries and rent.. By subtracting liabilities from assets, you arrive at shareholders equity, or how much investors would receive if the company liquidated its assets and paid off its debts right now. If you divide liabilities by shareholders equity, you get the ...
But seriously. Many of you also know that I not only live by these "three pillars" in a day-to-day physical sense, but I also believe in them to the extent that my financial viability is tied directly to these ideas. Being a partner in Efficient Exercise, a co-founder of Paleo f(x), and a founding member of ID Life means means that I truly believe in this approach, entrusting not just my physical health, but my financial health to this synergy as well.. Because its likely to be the most controversial piece to my "tri-pillar" system, Id like to focus today on "informed testing, "hacks" and supplementation". Why the controversy? Well, Its confusing for some to see my, on the one hand, championing of all things Ancestral and Evolutionary in (what may seem like) stark contrast to my wholehearted endorsement of ARXFit technology, HRV monitoring, 23and Me-like testing, and industry-revolutionizing supplementation strategy.. And just an aside (and for what its worth), I think the whole FDA ...

Also typically the private citizen cannot effectively manage large-scale alcohol manufacturing and hope to make a sizable profit because even if they undercut the retail price the overall profit margin relative to undercutting that price will be limited demanding that they capture a greater volume of the market, which increases capital and maintenance costs. That is why alcohol manufactures typically look toward sales at large retail establishments to spur profit by volume. However, in the case of marijuana, private dealers can easily make a living on a lower volume of sales due to the higher profit margins allowing them to make a stronger price bids against retail industry. Think of it like a farmers market competing against a supermarket except instead of one farmers market there are thousands of them and they are much more mobile. An empirical example of this undercut behavior was seen in Canada in the mid-90s where a new tax increased cigarette pack prices creating an average 2 dollar ...
The trucking industry depends on recovering revenue through fuel surcharges, as I remarked on earlier. The average carrier is operating on a 2% profit margin, which wouldnt naturally give enough room for sustaining severe fuel price fluctuation as we commonly see in the markets. Typically, that surcharge works like a rebate: carriers and owner/operators are reimbursed a certain amount of money per mile they drive in order to help cover fuel costs. After the price of fuel crashed, the industry is not only no longer receiving a rebate, but is paying a penalty per mile. The industry now "owes" for the reduction in fuel prices, while simultaneously shippers are willing to pay less because they know fuel prices are down. The spot market prices for dry freight has been crashing steadily alongside the fall of fuel prices. So, assuming a carrier or operator is surviving on a 2% profit margin, and assuming that carrier is generating an average revenue of $2 per mile, then a fuel surcharge of just four ...
This "White Paper" has compared past studies that analyzed the impact of POHs on health care costs. In general, research has concluded that the addition of POHs increases cost for patients in an area. Moreover, the addition of POHs to an area tends to undercut the economic viability of full-service community hospitals in the service area. By selecting patients with less severe illnesses, by limiting emergency room care, and by earning higher profit margins, POHs tend to increase medical costs in an area. The fundamental factor accounting for this relationship is that the decision of which medical facility to use is made, or influenced, by the physician, not the patient. Thus, physicians with a financial stake in the POH are motivated to send high profit margin patients to the POH ...

UK banks need to raise £60 billion to meet regulatory risk standards and to cover fines and compensations for mis-selling, the Bank of England says in its Financial Stability Report (FSR). Banks will need between £5 billion and £35 billion to meet regulator risk standards the report said, while a further £4 billion to £10 billion will be needed for mis-selling costs, and £15 billion for consumer loans and European debt. Sir Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, said that these risks gave a false picture of banks financial health and banks that have insufficient capital could jeopardise the UKs economic recovery. He called for banks to accurately account for potential losses on their balance sheets and warned they may need to recapitalise or restructure to ensure they have sufficient capital to cover a potential future crisis. The Bank of Englands Financial Policy Committee (FPC), which was established to safeguard against a further financial crisis, wants the Financial ...
A business model that works to build and sustain the financial health of your operation is just as critical to a small shop as it is to a large company. Regardless of how high a rate you can command, the work is only as valuable as the extent to which you are compensated quickly, relative to your financial needs. Consider the average "lag time" in your current business model, from the time you start a project to the time you are approved to bill and, finally, receive payment. If youre overly reliant on a few slow paying clients, for example, optimizing your pricing strategy could improve your cash flow-even if it means pitching to smaller clients who may not be equipped to pay your highest rate, but have flexibility in their invoicing processes. By using an electronic invoicing system, for example, you can ease the administrative burdens that deplete your billable hours; if you use a payment processing service (many are cost-efficient for small businesses), you can even accept credit cards ...

What if scheduling surgery was like a trip to the auto mechanic - before the first turn of the wrench, or in this case, the slice of a scalpel - patients received a printed estimate listing the total price theyd be expected to pay?. The sticker shock may elevate your blood pressure for a few minutes, but in the long run, knowing before you go would likely be better for your financial health than figuratively writing a blank check as the anesthesia hits.. As Republican lawmakers tout the American Health Care Act, their alternative to the 2010 industry overhaul known as Obamacare, our nation is in the thick of an ideological debate: Is health care a right that the government should guarantee, or is it a private service, essentially a consumer product?. Most conservatives gravitate toward the latter definition. Taking that to its logical conclusion, we challenge them to consider free-market reforms that would force hospitals and doctor offices to compete for patients business, driving prices down ...
Meanwhile, north of the border, Canadians are debating whether and where to build a full-scale proton beam treatment center. (My Google search reveals only a small one thus far, for melanoma of the eye, in British Columbia.) Because of its cost, a large machine would have to be federally authorized; but the organization of health care in Canada is by province, raising the prospect of an interesting competition. When you consider the size (and thus space needs), technical staffing requirements, and financial condition of the various provincial governments, there are only a few candidate cities. Toronto would seem a logical spot, for example, but there is not enough space near the major medical center, and the Ontario finances are weak. Oddly enough (given the small population of the province), Saskatoon might end up as a top candidate. It has physical space, expert staff, and a surplus in current provincial accounts ...

There has been a lot of focus on clinical measurements and benchmarking lately, especially with the introduction the Quality Payment Program (QPP) within the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). It is just as important to measure the financial health of your anesthesiology and pain practice through benchmarking and certain key performance indicators (KPIs). This Timely Topic covers a few measurements that may be useful for your practice.. Every part of your practice can be measured, so how do you determine which KPIs are most meaningful? First, examine the current state of your practice. Now is an opportune time to assess for specific areas of concern from 2017. As you review the prior year, you may identify positive operational trends that you want to continue in 2018. Identifying both strengths and weaknesses for your practice can help in establishing practice goals for the year. Continued tracking of specific KPIs will help you assess progress toward meeting those goals ...
In light of the cumulative progress toward maximum employment and the improvement in the outlook for labor market conditions, the Committee decided to make a further measured reduction in the pace of its asset purchases. Beginning in February, the Committee will add to its holdings of agency mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $30 billion per month rather than $35 billion per month, and will add to its holdings of longer-term Treasury securities at a pace of $35 billion per month rather than $40 billion per month. The Committee is maintaining its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its holdings of agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities in agency mortgage-backed securities and of rolling over maturing Treasury securities at auction. The Committees sizable and still-increasing holdings of longer-term securities should maintain downward pressure on longer-term interest rates, support mortgage markets, and help to make broader financial conditions more ...

The 2006-07 biennium presented significant challenges for programme planning, implementation monitoring and budget control. The Revised Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) 2006-07, which implemented approved elements of the Director-Generals reform proposals, was prepared. Despite postponement of the Medium-Term Plan (MTP), the Revised PWB combined all key elements found in both an MTP and a PWB, introducing a reformulated, consolidated (by 29 percent) set of programme entities. Significant efforts were required in elaborating the reformed decentralized model. Members appreciated the leaner Revised PWB document and Web annexes. A key lesson learned in the process was that significant synergies are gained in unifying the MTP and PWB processes. An additional budgetary exercise involved the further proposals for reform submitted by the Director-General to the 2006 Council. The SPWB 2008-09 and PWB 2008-09 were prepared, with focus on restoring the financial health of the Organization. Both ...

San Antonio Express-News While were on the subject of revitalizing the country, how about a stimulus agreement that gets us off the couch? Or government spending that doesnt add pork - to our waistlines? And what about increasing campaign spending, for ads that promote healthy eating?. The critical issues facing the nation are many, and the tasks of the new administration, daunting, but even now - especially now - tackling the obesity crisis with prevention and wellness programs must be a part of a progressive agenda. To improve the physical, emotional and financial health of the country, President Barack Obama should declare a war on fat.. Last month, a large group of leading health experts and organizations sent then-President-elect Obama a letter urging him "to take bold and urgent action to reverse the obesity epidemic.". Originally, $5.8 billion in the Senate bill and $3 billion in the House bill were allocated for a prevention and wellness fund, but the figure was slashed to just $1 ...

Companies play an important role in implementing actions geared towards preventing and improving the health conditions of employees and facilitating the mechanisms for employees to generate savings that complement their income as they grow older. Instead of considering old age as a time of dependency and little well-being, it would be better to change our perception of old age and plan in such a way that we can enjoy every moment. If we begin to plan right now how to increase our well-being when we are older and take care of our physical and financial health we can fully enjoy our golden years.
Just 20 years ago, about one in 10 workers was over the age of 55; today, its one in five. We are aging as a nation. We are living longer than our forebears a century ago, but can effective population health management push back the serious effects from chronic disease so we can live healthier, more productive years?. In the typical lifespan, there is a point at which an individual first becomes chronically ill or disabled, and a further point at which a person dies. On average, the time between those two points is about 20 years, according to healthy aging pioneer James Fries. Fries envisions a world in which we may not add many more years to the end of life, but we can "compress morbidity," or shorten the number of years we suffer from illness. The key question is: how can we maximize the healthy years of our lives? Its not just a question important to individuals; its critically important to our economy as well. Population health and a nations financial health are inextricably linked. ...
The Partners in Progress Panel program discusses the cancer treatment process, how to be an active participant in your care, and financial health matters.
As the potter feels satisfied looking at his artistic piece of work, which turned a ball of clay into a fine pot; molding oneself is also important to make one live in a society that is both competitive and challenging. Every child needs to learn the art of living that can be imbibed only through the channel of education; however there are many who are deprived of basic education. Most of them fail to experience the joy of learning due to their financial conditions. The hands that have to carry a bag of books are forced to work to meet their daily needs. Therefore it is highly important to educate parents in making them realize the importance of childs education for the future. ...
A majority of European Health Committee MEPs have nonetheless recently approved a report by Anne Delvaux (PPE) endorsing the existence of what was really an imaginary panic and calling for more cooperation between member states to deal with future pandemics.. The document[1], available on the Cdh site, also states that the WHO - having chosen the perfect moment to modify its criteria for the definition of a pandemic - is now planning to change its criteria again by reinstating a criterion based on severity!. It is also somewhat perplexing to read that a majority of MEPs are in favour of a collective vaccine purchase scheme given that such a plan would clearly be more beneficial for the financial health of the vaccine manufacturers (for whom the risk of unsold stock and cancelled contracts would thus be reduced) than for any possible notion of health freedom and patient choice. A scheme of this kind will not only make it very easy for national ministers to dodge their responsibilities but will ...
Typographical error in headline has been corrected.. NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Robert Benmosche is stepping down as chief executive of AIG AIG, +0.35% this weekend, he told Bloomberg TV, after learning in May that his cancer prognosis gives him only nine months to a year to live. Benmosche has led the insurer for five years and oversaw its return to financial health after it was forced into a massive government bailout during the financial crisis. The executive said he sped up his retirement plans, which were originally scheduled for the first quarter of 2015, on learning the bad news about his cancer. ...

I have a somewhat different view of the Greek situation from the consensus. Most observers believe Alexis Tsipras was forced to give in on all of the demands of the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission and that he is in serious political trouble as a result. My assessment of the situation is that, in the eleventh hour, Tsipras correctly concluded that Europe would, for a number of reasons, do almost anything to keep Greece in the European Union. The first is the fear that there would be contagion in the southern-tier countries like Spain and Portugal, who might believe their economies would improve if they had control of their own currencies, and the European "project" would die. The second is that a Greek default would destabilize the financial health of Europe generally, and the fragile economic recovery taking place there would be aborted. In that circumstance, Tsipras would be forced to face the domestic consequences of default and withdrawal ...

At first glance, you might think the problem lay with operating costs rising too fast relative to revenue growth. In part, thats true. Over the last six months, sales are up 19%, and selling, general, and administrative costs have risen 21%. With margins already razor-thin, thats not good. But closer inspection reveals that the real damage to operating profitability comes from another source -- increased R&D spending. iRobot spent roughly 10% of its revenues on research over the last two quarters -- a 73% year-over-year increase.. Our hope, of course, is that investments in research today will yield expanded profit margins tomorrow -- both literally and figuratively.. What did we expect out of iRobot last quarter, and what did we see when we popped the access hatch? Find out in:. ...
Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (Nasdaq: VRTX) today provided an update on its business performance, including preliminary financial results for 2
In the short term predatory pricing through sharp discounting reduces profit margins, as would a price war, and will cause profits to fall. There are various tests to assess whether the pricing is predatory: Areeda-Turner suggest it is below Short Run Marginal Costs, the AKZO case suggests it is costing below Average Variable Costs, and the case of United Brands suggests it is simply when the difference in cost between the cost of manufacturing and the price charged to consumers is excessive. Yet businesses may engage in predatory pricing as a longer term strategy. Competitors who are not as financially stable or strong may suffer even greater loss of revenue or reduced profits. After the weaker competitors are driven out, the surviving business can raise prices above competitive levels (to supra competitive pricing). The predator hopes to generate revenues and profits in the future that will more than offset the losses it incurred during the predatory pricing period. This is known as ...

Net Sales: Our consolidated corporate sales for the three- and nine-month periods ended August 31, 2014 were $11,585,000 and $27,291,000, respectively, compared to $9,350,000 and $27,016,000 during the same respective periods in 2013, a $2,234,000 or 23.9%, increase for the quarter and a $275,000 or 1.0% increase year-to-date. The increase in revenue for the three month period ended August 31, 2014 was primarily due to increases in revenue at Manufacturing and revenues generated from our new tools segment, formed following the acquisition of Ohio Metals in the fourth quarter of 2013. For the nine-month period ended August 31, 2014, Manufacturing, Vessels and Scientific each experienced a decline in revenue, which was offset by the addition of revenue generated from Metals. Consolidated gross profit margin for the three- and nine-month periods ending August 31, 2014 was 23.3% and 23.3% compared to 18.5% and 24.7% during the same periods of 2013..

While we can certainly argue and find factual support for either side all day long, I believe the bigger picture is people are simply looking for alternatives to getting taken advantage of by big industry.. The catch is, many of these companies promoting "natural" alternative products carry the same (if not higher) profit margins than pharmaceuticals and they dont have to adhere to strict guidelines from the FDA or spend millions on testing. Most people dont realize that over 60% of the nutritional products in the USA, regardless of brand, company or distribution system (yes, even those sold by popular networking companies) are all made by the same company, usually even in the same building. Such businesses create "designer" products and label them accordingly. A typical $40 bottle of "ultra-healthy juice" costs around $5 (or less) to produce.. Theres nothing wrong with profits, even lucrative profits, but theres something to be said for the fact that these nutritional companies are simply ...
I agree. One big problem, I think, is that Sweden and much of the rest of the developed world refuses to pay enough for most new medicines for the companies that take enormous risks to invent and test those medicines to earn a reasonable return.. Only the United States provides enough of a profit margin to make the search for new pharmaceutical treatments possible. This reality distorts the market in many negative ways.. Let me give you a Scandanavian example. Novo-Nordisk, headquartered in Denmark, is a leader in discovering new treatments for diabetes (it is the second largest insulin producer in the world after Eli Lilly). Virtually all of Novo-Nordisks profit comes from American sales. It makes little to no profit selling products in Europe.. Is it any wonder that it has less incentive to discover new drugs than it otherwise would if only it could get a reasonable return for European sales?. ...

So what are some reasons to like PepsiCo as a potential investment? Let me review a few and invite you to share your own thoughts on our PepsiCo discussion board.. Lets start with some impressive numbers. Net profit margins have been climbing in recent years from 10.2% in 2001 to 12% in 2002 to 13.2% in 2003. Operating margins have likewise advanced from 15.5% in 2001 to 17.7% in 2003. (Gross margins have inched down very slightly from 53.4% to 54.1%.) Long-term debt is manageable and dropped by 22% between 2002 and 2003. Return on invested capital is a very healthy 29%.. Net income rose 14.7% between 2001 and 2003, while earnings per share (EPS) rocketed ahead by 54.1%. PepsiCo is achieving this by reducing the number of shares outstanding by buying back shares. If you dont get whats happening, think of a big pizza. The pizza grew by 14.7% over two years, but it was also cut into fewer pieces, so each piece ended up being 54.1% bigger. Got it?. Another attractive number is its dividend ...

Wording was the topic of discussion at the monthly Syringa Hospital board meeting July 25. The conversation revolved around the affiliation agreement with Kootenai Health.
The June ruling prompted hospital officials to reach a settlement with Morristown. The agreement resulted in nearly a quarter of Morristown Medical Centers property now being subject to local property taxes, among other components. The court decision also shook up the hospital industry across the state, as municipalities throughout New Jersey started to look into whether they could generate new revenue from hospitals within their own borders. The successful challenge to the property tax exemption also presented a new dilemma for nonprofit hospitals already struggling to survive in an ever-evolving industry. Sen. Robert Singer (R-Ocean), a primary sponsor of the legislation, called the issue one of the most critical presently before lawmakers, given the strain many nonprofit hospitals are already under in New Jersey.. "No one ever wants to see a hospital close in their district," he said during a recent legislative hearing. "This bill allows hospitals to survive." Betsy Ryan, president and chief ...
