What is a Statement of Operations?

Statement of Operations reports with multi-year KPIs are considered powerful monthly management reports and are used by Boards, CFOs and other executives to see a current Profit & Loss overview along with a three year picture of key performance indicators (KPIs). Some of the main functionality in this type of innovative monthly report is that it uses parameters that provide on-demand choices of period and organizational units to include. Across the columns it dynamically lists each month of the year up to the current period. The far right shows the total year-to-date (YTD) figures as well as the average monthly performance. The top portion of the rows shows two metrics: Patient volume and Average patient charge. Following that you see a typical Profit & Loss layout with revenues, expenses and net income. At the bottom of the report there are KPI sections for the current year as well as the two prior years. You find an example of this type of innovative monthly report below.

Purpose of Statement of Operations Reports

Healthcare providers use Statement of Operations Reports to offer managers a single tool to make it easy to analyze monthly financial results along with multi-year KPI performance. When used as part of good business practices in a Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) department, an organization can improve its strategies and decision-making as well as reduce the chances that executives don’t easily see the big, multi-year picture while analyzing current year and monthly results.
