Select any health care organization with which you are familiar with in the United States (or one that you would like to learn more about), and think about the role of budgeting in that particular organization. Conduct research, as needed, to find out more about the budgeting process of this organization.
Bring to mind a wide range of health care organizations, such as a long-term care facility, large for-profit hospital, physicians' practice, VA hospital, or state-run clinic. Consider how budgeting would be influenced depending on an organization's sources of funding. How do the purposes or uses of a budget vary according to the kind of health care organization it is?
