Editorial Reviews

Robert A. McLean
This book is a revision of the successful first edition. It presents the major topics of cost-accounting as they are, or should be, practiced in healthcare organizations. The purpose is to offer a unified treatment of material that is available only in non-health related texts or scattered throughout the journals of health services administration. The authors intend that the book be used by practicing healthcare managers and by students in university-based programs in health administration. Both audiences will find the text useful and well written. The book covers traditional cost accounting topics, including product costing, cost allocation, cost-volume-profit analysis, budgeting, management control, information systems, and total-cost management. Although the book itself is very traditional, readers have access to cases and problems on a web-site maintained by the author. This is an excellent book by highly competent authors. Used in conjunction with the companion book, it allows the non-accountant reader to develop the necessary expertise to perform and understand basic cost-accounting.
