Business Profitability and Expenses

Words: 1200 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 42404590

revenue and decreasing costs and expenses for a business are two totally separate but interactive components. All entities that are in business; both for profit and non-profit, should be concerned with increasing the revenues as well as decreasing the expenses; it makes smart business sense and those entities that do not do so often find themselves becoming irrelevant or even worse, no longer viable. As an example, even the public hospitals in China show concern as evidenced in a recent paper. The research found that "ith market-oriented economic and health-care reform, public hospitals in China have received unprecedented pressures from governmental regulations, public opinions, and financial demands. To adapt the changing environment and keep pace of modernizing healthcare delivery system, public hospitals in China are expanding clinical services and improving delivery efficiency, while controlling costs" (Zhao, Yu, Liu, Ma, ang, Kong, Li, Ma, Cui, Xu, Yu, Bao, Guo, ang, Zhang,…… [Read More]

Trans-Share Case Study: An Analysis of Accounting Practices Before the Company Goes Public

It is an exciting day for Trans-Share. The opportunity to finally go public has come, but with it are a number of very important decisions the organization must make about its operational procedures. It is important for companies to work out the kinks of its financial reporting before the organization goes public, which makes the accounting situation much more complicated. As such, it is recommended that Trans-Share review its current financial reporting methods in order to determine if they are the most efficient.

After reviewing the case study, it can be assumed that it is best that the fractional interest program be accounted for immediately as a sale, and not a lease. The processes for accounting leases simply do not fit the needs of the organization best. Some adjustments are needed, but an entire overhaul of…… [Read More]

Purchasing a CT Scanner

Benefits and Costs of Purchasing A CT Scanner: A Comprehensive Evaluation

"Each year, buyers of CT scanners faced much-improved choice sets; the question is how valuable those improvements were," and thus this is a review to explore whether or not the acquisition of CT scanners are actually worth a hospital committing to such an expensive effort (Ellickson et al. 2001 p 544). Overall, the health benefits of CT scans are often extremely positive to patient care. Still, the machines and organizational costs tied to their maintenance are often costly to both the organization and the patients. Yet, the purchase of such technology does provide greater quality and efficiency within patient care strategies, from a health and organizational perspective. In such, it is clear that the positives of purchasing such technology would then outweigh any potential negatives.
