As reimbursement is moving in the fee for service direction and patient satisfaction playing heavily in the reimbursement amount in the future, is the payer mix strong enough to survive the full enactment of the Affordable Care Act? The Cleveland Clinic has a mix of Medicare/Medicaid, private insurance, self-paying, and charity care currently. 2. Case mix management is based on the idea that protocols are set to treat certain illnesses to help with reducing the cost associated, therefore increasing profitability. The Cleveland Clinic has an international patient population and a physician base that is employed by the Clinic and draws a paycheck. The international patients are cash patients and the doctors are not trying to meet any quotas as they get paid the same regardless of what they order or how many patients they see. Is the Clinic strong enough to withstand the future as the physicians are already working together to only order what is necessary for patients, since the case mix management concept has been in place for several years? 3. The Cleveland Clinic has opened several locations within the United States, Canada, and Abu Dhabi. The return on investment has been there for the locations in the US and Canada.

...Financial Report Student’s Name Institution Components of the Annual Report Accounting inputs are records of business and transactions. They arise from sales, purchases, investments and other financial activities. To ensure the success of the financial report, you need to record these transactions as they happen and process them accurately in order. Income statement, stockholders equity, cash flow statements and balance sheets are financial reports you can prepare using these accounting inputs (Rodov & Leliaert, 2002). First, scrutinize all the source documents for example cash registers, bills and invoices and receipts to ensure they are accurate. Secondly, prepare journal entries for each of the transactions in the source documents and transfer all the journal entries for their respective books of original entry for example purchase and cash and general journals and sales journals. Thirdly, the general ledger accounts, which is a collection of all business accounts. Once done with entries into a journal, you should post the journals to respective accounts in the general ledger (Ettredge, Richardson & Scholz, 2001). Next is the unadjusted trial balance. A trial balance confirms the accuracy of the general ledger created; therefore, you need to prepare an unadjusted trial balance that is the summary of the credit and debit balances ass contained in the general ledger.
