There is a vast need for statistical analysis and applications in healthcare administration.  Statistics are a key element of many health administration courses including financial management and quantitative methods, but texts in this area typically presume quantitative skills that students and many professionals so often lack.

This text fills the needs of both students and practicing health care managers who must apply statistical concepts and methods to real world health care management problems and issues. It covers the fundamentals of statistics in a user-friendly way, with a strong emphasis on practical application in health administration. The text is highly structured with step-by-step instructions throughout. There is an emphasis on Excel and other commonly used programs, although manual calculations are given careful attention as well.
