Overview
For this assignment, you will be provided with a spreadsheet containing projected numbers for two different patient services programs. You will need to download the Program Projections [XLSX] Download Program Projections [XLSX]spreadsheet and use it to conduct your analysis.
Instructions
You are a member of the financial services department at Benson Regional Medical Center. The chief financial officer and chair of the capital budgeting committee, Dana Foster, has requested that you perform some capital analysis of two proposed patient service programs.
You have been provided with a spreadsheet that covers much of the projected financials for each of the proposed programs. Your task is to perform an analysis of that information and provide your recommendation to the capital budgeting committee as to which program they should pursue.
You have been asked to create a presentation to present your findings to the capital budgeting committee.
Using the provided spreadsheet, complete a capital budgeting analysis on the information provided in the spreadsheet. Specifically, you will need to identify a net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR), and a discounted payback period for proposed Program #1 and Program #2. You will present your finding in a presentation.
Design a PowerPoint presentation for the capital budgeting committee that includes all of the following:
Create a brief 1-2 slide description of the proposed programs.
Develop a comparison between the cash flow projects of each program from Year 0 to Year 5. Highlight the differences.
Compare the results and interpretation of the discounted payback period between both programs.
Compare the net present value (NPV) for each program.
Compare the Internal rate of return (IRR) for each program.
Develop a recommendation for which program the capital budgeting committee should take into consideration. Include supporting rationale.
Formatting Requirements
The presentation should be 8-10 slides in length and include speaker notes with each slide.

This week we are exploring aspects of the job. Having prepared your resume and career plan:
Please conduct an online career search for a post-graduate job or other position of interest that fits your career plan (whether soon or farther in the future). If you have nothing in mind at the moment, search for a fit for a hypothetical “dream job.”
In your initial post, share at least one job posting from your search in the discussion, including a hyperlink. Explain in your post:

how you went about your search (e.g. databases you used, key search terms, etc.); and
how this job position aligns with your career plan that you posted in last week’s discussion (or the “dream job”).

In your responses to classmates, please ask questions designed to probe for more information and insight.

 ompt: Review the Hughes, et al. text, the Blackaby & Blackaby text, and  assigned journal articles. Determine a minimum of two constructs (dependent  and independent variable) and complete a literature review. o Requirements: 12-14 page research paper (3000-3500 words). Page length does  not include Title Page or Reference Page(s). The paper, including citations,  references, and general format will be APA compliant.  o Contents of Final Paper: The final paper will include the elements of a literature  review with the following general outline. ▪ Abstract (typically write this last) ▪ Introduction ▫ Introduce your topic. ▫ Outline the general topic area you will be discussing in the paper. ▫ Why is the topic important/relevant (other researchers in the field,  practitioners, others)? ▫ What is the specific scope of your research interest? ▫ Purpose or research question(s)? o Theoretical foundation for the variables you are presenting in the paper. For  instance, if I’m looking at two different types of justice and proposing a  relationship with employee engagement, this section would separately look at the  theoretical foundations for justice (and the two types) and employee engagement. o You are demonstrating (1) you are familiar with the research that has  already been done in this general area and (2) you have found a gap or  area in the research that is lacking…an area that hasn’t been researched at  all or very little (advancing the literature).

Overview
For this assignment, you will create a narrated PowerPoint presentation designed to train others on the role of healthcare administrations in fiscal planning and fiscal management. This is your opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned about what fiscal planning and management can and should look like for healthcare administrators.
Instructions
As a regional healthcare administrator for a long-term care organization, you have been asked to train a new group of healthcare administrators who just completed their degrees. They have no work experience in healthcare administration or financial management. For this assignment, you will develop a 10-12 slide narrated PowerPoint presentation explaining the role of healthcare administrators in fiscal planning and financial management.
Your presentation should address each of the following:
Explain how fiscal planning ties into strategic planning. Be sure to provide at least two concrete examples. In this context, fiscal planning may be considered strategic financing.
Describe the role (direct or indirect) that healthcare administrators play in budgeting. Specifically, address the role administrators play in the construction and implementation of operating and capital budgets.
Assess how fiscal planning and financial management help ensure that provider organizations remain compliant with federal, state, and local regulations. Conversely, you should assess how those regulations impact fiscal planning and healthcare financial management.
Review the 4 Cs of healthcare finance: cost, capital, control, and cash by writing a brief definition of each and explaining, with rationale, the impact of the 4 Cs on the success of health service organizations.
Propose the application of Lean Six Sigma concepts as a tool for strengthening the revenue cycle of provider organizations.
Your presentation should meet the following formatting requirements:
Be 10-12 slides in length.
Include narrated content to match the presentation.
Include a cover slide and references slide (or slides). (These slides are not part of the 10-12 slide requirement.)

This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The library is your home for SWS assistance, including citations and formatting. Please refer to the Library site for all support. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:
Analyze the healthcare administrator’s role in fiscal planning and management.

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum
Review Chapters 18 and 19 of Macroeconomics: Private and Public Choice.
For this discussion forum, you may choose to use Walmart as an example or select a new company, as long as you address the following prompts.
Discuss how comparative analysis, trade restrictions, tariffs, and exchange rates of your chosen company will impact the decision to expand. You need to take these macroeconomic concepts and apply them directly to the Walmart (or other selected company) expansion decision.
Consider the topics you have studied throughout this course. What other economic factors may impact the decision to expand?
Your initial response should be a minimum of 200 words. Graduate school students learn to assess the perspectives of several scholars.
