Capital Budgeting for the Hospital Board Member by Raj Gupta, PhD.

Principles of Decision Making for Board Members

In this video, Raj Gupta, PhD, discusses the financial aspects of capital budgeting especially for hospital board members. The discussion not only addresses important tools like net present value but includes important sources of health care information to be used when assessing community need. The discussion ends with a great case illustrative of the decision making process. Other determinants like whether the item is required to meet code or address a quality or safety issue, whether it requires new staff or new wiring or plumbing, will be addressed in later modules, white papers, and courses.
