[SOLVED] Week 8: Financial Analysis

Week 8: Financial Analysis

When you make a purchase, you expect some level of value in return. While the term “value” is somewhat subjective, you ultimately want to feel that the expenditure was worth the cost. In other words, that value returned to you must, at a minimum, equal the value of the expenditure.

For organizations, most purchases, investments, or other expenditures cannot be subjective. They must support organizational goals and/or return a profit or offer some other organizational value.

This week, you examine how nurse leaders can make the case for financial value of new product or service ideas. You explore the use of analysis tools—such as break-even, cost-benefit, and cost-effectiveness—to determine the financial impact as well as the organizational impact of expenditures.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Analyze the drivers of revenues and operating costs for healthcare products and service solutions
  • Calculate cost-benefit, break-even, and marginal costs for healthcare products and service solutions
  • Analyze the mechanisms by which costs for healthcare products and service solutions are developed

Assignment: W8A5 Ratio Analysis.  Financial Analysis


Your personal decisions regarding purchases are likely made, in no small part, based on your financial position. You will likely consult your bank statements and checkbook before buying. But the extent that you will go beyond current resources—including loans and financing—will depend on factors such as need for the good or service and potential it has for returning value. Similarly, leaders must juggle need, financial position, and potential for return when making expenditure decisions.

For this Assignment, you consider analysis tools such as expense forecasting, break-even, cost-benefit, marginal profit and loss and cost-effectiveness that can help determine the financial and organizational impact of proposed expenditures and investments.
