Accountants help ensure that a hospital runs efficiently and its financial records are kept accurately. Accountants analyze and communicate financial information. They prepare, analyze and verify financial documents to provide information to hospital administrators. Many accountants also offer budget analysis, financial and investment planning.
Most health care accounting positions require a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Some employers may prefer applicants with a master’s degree in accounting or those with a master’s degree in health care administration with a concentration in accounting.
