Health Care Financial Management for Nurse Managers: Applications in Hospitals, Long-Term Care, Home Care, and Ambulatory Care applies financial concepts to various health care settings. Since reimbursement varies between these settings, nurse managers must understand how to effectively manage financial data specific to each setting. In hospitals, three financial examples are given to effectively manage financial data either using, or not using, a patient classification system. The chapters on long-term care explain the Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI), including the Minimum Data Set (MDS) as well as how to best manage long term care resources. The home care chapters explore how home care is financed, and how to administrate financial resources in a home health agency. In the chapters on ambulatory care, the text discusses the ins and outs of reimbursement in primary care.
