    Explanation
    The correct answer is Profitability Ratios, Solvency Ratios, and Liquidity Ratios.

    To assess the organization's performance in Liquidity it is important to look at Days-Cash-On-Hand (DCOH), and Current Ratio, to  determine whether low DCOH is the result of active cash management or poor cash flow.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To assess an organization's performance in liquidity, it is crucial to consider two key indicators: Days-Cash-On-Hand (DCOH) and Current Ratio. DCOH measures the number of days a company can operate using its current cash balance, while the Current Ratio compares current assets to current liabilities. By examining these metrics, we can determine if a low DCOH is due to effective cash management or inadequate cash flow. Therefore, the statement is true as these indicators provide insight into the organization's liquidity position.

    To assess the organization's performance in Solvency, it is important to look at Long Term Debt to Net Assets and Liabilities to Fund balances and compare the two. The examination of both ratios is important to determine where the liabilities exist. When proposing a capital project we need to be sensitive to Long Term Debt, e.g. bond covenants, constraints and restrictions that could negatively affect a capital project approval. Conversely, when a large amount of current liabilities like Labor costs exist, automation and capital investment could positively affect the situation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when assessing an organization's performance in solvency, it is indeed important to look at the ratio of long-term debt to net assets and liabilities to fund balances. By comparing these ratios, we can determine where the liabilities exist and evaluate the organization's ability to meet its long-term financial obligations. Additionally, when proposing a capital project, it is crucial to consider the impact of long-term debt, such as bond covenants and restrictions, which could potentially affect the approval of the project. On the other hand, if there is a significant amount of current liabilities, such as labor costs, automation and capital investment may have a positive impact on the organization's financial situation.

    Many hospitals operate at a positive operating margin, but a negative net margin.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. Hospitals typically operate at a negative operating margin, meaning that their expenses exceed their revenue from patient services. However, they may still have a positive net margin if they receive additional income from investments, donations, or government subsidies. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that many hospitals operate at a positive operating margin but a negative net margin.

    Rate this question:

    Many hospital executives, including CFOs are compensated based on Return on Assets (ROA) performance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hospital executives, including CFOs, are often compensated based on Return on Assets (ROA) performance. This means that their pay is influenced by the financial performance of the hospital, specifically the ratio of net income to total assets. If the hospital's ROA is high, indicating efficient use of assets to generate profits, the executives may receive higher compensation. This incentivizes them to make strategic decisions that improve the hospital's financial performance and ultimately benefit the organization as a whole. Therefore, the statement that many hospital executives, including CFOs, are compensated based on ROA performance is true.

    EBITDA is a Non-GAAP measure that reflects the organization's ability to create positive cash proceeds from operations.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    EBITDA stands for Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization. It is a financial metric that provides a measure of a company's profitability by excluding certain expenses that are not directly related to its core operations. By focusing on the organization's ability to generate cash from its operations, EBITDA helps investors and analysts assess its operational efficiency and financial health. Therefore, the statement that EBITDA reflects the organization's ability to create positive cash proceeds from operations is true.

    Which of the following is not an Executive Decision Making driver in 2013?

    • A.

      Quality/Safety

    • B.

      Liquidity/Solvency/Profitability

    • C.

      Regulation/Compliance

    • D.

      Risk Management/Liabilities

    • E.

      Market/Competition

    • F.

      Budget Neutrality/Cost Stability

    Correct Answer
    F. Budget Neutrality/Cost Stability
    Explanation
    Budget Neutrality/Cost Stability is not an Executive Decision Making driver in 2013. The other options, such as Quality/Safety, Liquidity/Solvency/Profitability, Regulation/Compliance, Risk Management/Liabilities, and Market/Competition, are all factors that executives consider when making decisions. However, Budget Neutrality/Cost Stability is not typically seen as a driver for decision making, but rather as a goal or outcome that executives aim to achieve.

    Which of the following is not one of the top initiatives in action at virtually all of your provider clients?

    • A.

      Quality Improvement

    • B.

      IT Implementation

    • C.

      Patient Flow Improvement

    • D.

      Patient Satisfaction

    • E.

      Standardization

    Correct Answer
    E. Standardization
    Explanation
    Standardization is not one of the top initiatives in action at virtually all provider clients. This means that most provider clients do not prioritize or focus on standardizing their processes or procedures. Instead, they prioritize other initiatives such as quality improvement, IT implementation, patient flow improvement, and patient satisfaction. Standardization may not be a priority because each provider client may have unique needs and preferences, making it difficult to implement standardized approaches across different organizations.

    Explanation
    The missing phase in the capital project approval process is "Proposal Evaluation". This phase involves assessing and evaluating the project proposals that have been submitted. It includes reviewing the feasibility, cost, potential risks, and benefits of each proposal. The evaluation helps in determining which project(s) should be selected for funding and implementation.
