ACT 597 Cost Concepts in Healthcare (1.5 Credit Course)This course will apply some of the basic concepts and techniques learned in an introductory management accounting course to the unique setting of healthcare. In this course, we will revisit topics related to resource planning, understanding cost behavior and cost drives, costing of services (including the application of time‐driven activity‐based‐costing), and the assessment of performance relative to a budget. The case‐based course will provide a deeper dive into these topics using examples from healthcare organizations (e.g., hospitals, clinics, and/or healthcare service providers). The aim of the course is to prepare students working in the healthcare industry to apply modern costing concepts and techniques in their workplace. | Faculty: Jan Barton | Application Due: January 30, 2023 | Payment Due: February 13, 2023
