****An actual interview is not necessary. Answer the questions as if one were conducted****

Interview TWO people at health care businesses—one who has a financial position and another in an administrative or managerial position.

During your interview, ask the questions below. Afterward, write a 3+ page paper (double-spaced, Times New Roman font, and on a separate Word document) in which you:

  • List the questions asked and answers given during each interview
  • Summarize what you learned during each interview
  • Compare the information provided by each person. Were there any similarities? Did they contradict each other?
  • What information provided by the interviewees will be helpful to you in completing your project?
  • Give the contact information for each of your candidates

Financial Position Questions:

  1. Tell me your name, your title, and describe your role within the facility.
  2. How many people are involved in the financial process, and can you briefly explain the roles of each person involved?
  3. How do you formulate your budget for your facility or department on a monthly and annual basis?
  4. What is important for me to know about starting up a business and month to month operational finances?
  5. If I have a start-up loan amount of up to $500,000, how would you best utilize this?
  6. Are financial gains more important than the treatment of employees/patients?
  7. Do you enjoy the work that you do?
  8. Do you see yourself within the same profession in 5 years?

Administrative or Managerial Questions:

  1. Tell me your name, your title, and describe your role with the facility.
  2. Can you explain to me the managerial operations of your healthcare facility?
  3. What are some of the biggest decisions you make on a daily basis?
  4. What do you do to advertise or market your facility for growth within your community?
  5. What is important for me to know from an administrative or managerial perspective of starting up and growing a healthcare business?
  6. How do you respond to challenges presented within your facility?
  7. What motivates you to do a good job?
  8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

This paper will not require references but should still be written as an academic essay.
