Whether you are in a leadership role or a physician going to work every day and caring for patients, you still are subject to a budget. Budgets are created in order to plan how your organization’s assets are used to do the job. Budgets affect what types of services your organization will offer. They affect how much of it is provided. Budgets have a direct impact on your ability to care for your patients. Understanding the budget, knowing how to change it as conditions change using the language of finance, and insuring that you stay within your budget is every provider’s responsibility.
