OSR Toolkit: Business Metrics Workshop


Like medicine, business has its own language. Health-care providers--in particular those who plan on participating in administration--should be conversant in the terms and concepts that organizations use to evaluate projects. The CUSOM Business & Health Care Special Interest Group (SIG) held a workshop for all students on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The event, which provided a basic introduction to finance, covered assets and liabilities, balance sheets, and corporate finance metrics. This toolkit includes the corporate finance metrics portion of the presentation: ROI, cumulative cash flow, payback period, discount factor, net present value, and profitability index.
