Forecasting at Lincoln Community Hospital
An 8 page paper critiquing a hospital management as described in Harvard case 9-191-149, Lincoln Community Hospital. The paper reviews the actions of the Executive Committee, concluding that it lacks the information it needs to establish a strategy for halting operating losses or to produce an accurate forecast for the future. The bottom line is that Lincoln Hospital has not been managed effectively for several years, if indeed it ever was. As a nonprofit, independent hospital in the mid-1980s, it is facing intense changes in the healthcare industry in the future. It needs to begin looking at the signs of change and begin to meet those changes with a plan as to how to deal with them. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
