“The New Break-Even Analysis” article was recognized for editorial achievement

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MD Buyline is proud to announce the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) presented Mr. James Laskaris, emerging technology analyst of MD Buyline, and Ms. Katie Regan, clinical publications manager of MD Buyline, with the national Helen Yerger/L. Vann Seawell Best Article Award for 2013-14.

The award recognizes "The New Break-Even Analysis" article, published in the December 2013 issue of hfm Magazine, for outstanding editorial achievement and contribution to the literature of healthcare professionals.

“MD Buyline is proud to receive this award and recognize Mr. Laskaris and Ms. Regan for their achievements. This article came out of a need MD Buyline saw in the healthcare industry to elevate the scope and assumptions associated with the traditional break-even analysis. We are excited that the hfm readers agreed these new insights are critical elements for value analysis teams to consider when making financially viable technology acquisitions,” said Mr. David Rodriguez, vice president, marketing and solutions management of MD Buyline.

Changes in the economic and legislative environment are complicating the capital acquisition landscape. Healthcare providers need to re-evaluate the assumptions that underlie their break-even analysis and incorporate clinical aspects into their decisions. The awarded article introduces four main areas of the new break-even analysis, including cost, utilization, payment and margins, and clinical considerations.

A complimentary copy of “The New Break-Even Analysis” is available for download.
