Module 3 – Case

WORKING CAPITAL, MATERIALS MANAGEMENT, AND EVALUATING FINANCIAL
HEALTH

Assignment Overview

In the management of the revenue cycle in the healthcare environment, we have four clear steps: establishing effective
policies and procedures, implementing/evaluating an accounting system, implementing/evaluating a medical records
system, and implementing/evaluating a credit and collections system. Each of these steps are central to the success of
the organization, and any weakness at just one of the steps leaves your organization critically vulnerable.

The passing of HIPAA (as a transactional standard) gives us the unique opportunity to improve revenue cycle
performance. As you grow in financial managerial skills, it will help you to conceptualize the revenue cycle as a
continuum, instead of a set of isolated happenings. This Module’s Case will challenge you to study each of the four
steps, and then explain their central nature to organizational success.
