(Solution) An equipment acquisition proposal was being considered by a large health care organization, XYZ Health Care.


An equipment acquisition proposal was being considered by a large health care organization, XYZ Health Care. The array machine will enable the hospital to perform autoimmunity tests (for immunoglobulins G, M, and A and complements C3 and C4) in-house rather than sending them to a reference laboratory. Test turnaround time is expected to decrease by 2 days. The array machine costs $50,000, with a useful life of 5 years. The depreciation schedule will be $10,000/year. The expected volume for tests is one of each of the five autoimmunity tests per day. Having the tests done by the reference laboratory costs the hospital an average of $10/test. The hospital's average charge to patients is $20/test. If the array machine is acquired and the tests done in-house, the costs of reagents would average $2/test. The array machine can run a maximum of 40 patient samples and perform 20 different tests on each sample every 2 hours. Except in extraordinary circumstances, tests would be run Monday thorough Saturday. The machine requires approximately 1 hour of technician time (valued at $15/hour) each day to calibrate it, to conduct a test run for control purposes and to perform general maintenance. This is a fixed cost because it does not vary by volume. Technician setup time to run tests is negligible. Beyond the five autoimmunity tests the laboratory wants to perform in-house, the machine can also perform apolipoprotein cardiac profiles that are currently done on equipment in the clinical chemistry department. The array machine can provide a quantitative measure and not just the positive or negative indicator that the clinical chemistry department's current equipment gives.Deliverables: The CEO of XYZ Health Care has hired your team as consultants to prepare a report addressing the following questions listed below. Submit one (1) single submission at the conclusion of Week Eleven no later than Sunday, by 11:59 PM EST. This is a group assignment.How many autoimmunity tests per year will have to be performed on the array machine to break even?Given the present volume of tests, would there be an annual net contribution and, if so, how much?If half of the patients have Medicare coverage (DRG reimbursement includes all tests), would the laboratory break even on the equipment? If not, should the equipment be acquired anyway?The written report must include the following:APA formatted cover and reference pageAPA formatted double-spaced typed submission in Arial or Times New Roman fontThe report must not exceed four to five (4-5) pages (which excludes the required cover page, reference page and any provided graphs/illustrations)Schedule of Deliverables & Important Notes:Note: For the purpose of this assignment, please remain in the previously assigned groups from Week 5: Managed Care Organization Team Project "Contracts Review"Week 10: A final copy of the written report (One submission per group)  https://www.coursehero.com/tutors-problems/Business/10492435 10492435 1 Compared to borrowing and buying an asset, leasing can add value a. to both sides (lessor and lessee) of the leasing transaction only if there is...

Jones are married taxpayers who file a joint return.... This is a individual taxation problem and I need help with it. Please I need this done by April 22,20171 Individual Income Taxation Prof. E. Gary Class Project #2 Due May 02, 2017 Alice J. and Bruce M. Jones are married taxpayers who file a joint return. Alice’s birthday is September 21, 1961, and Bruce’s is June 27, 1960. Alice is the office manager for Ames Dental Clinic. Bruce is the CPA at Lehman, York & Hunter CPA, LP. The Jones provide over half of the support of their two children, Cynthia (born January 25, 1994, Social Security number (017-44-9126) and John (born February 7, 1995, Social Security number (017-27-4148), who live with them. Both children are full- time students and live with the Jones except when they are away at college. Cynthia is in her third year of college, and earned $5,750 from a summer internship in 2015, and John is in his first year of college and he earned $4,500 from a part-time job during 2015. In 2015, the Jones’ paid $3,975 for Cynthia’s college tuition and $5,100 for John’s college tuition. The Jones also provided all the support for their 26-year-old son Ryan who recently graduated from law school but cannot find employment. Ryan lives in DC. According to Mr. Jones on July 01, 2015, he and his wife exchanged their two- family house in Westchester County (378 Pinebrook Blvd, New Rochelle, NY), which they rented entirely from January 01, 2005 to June 30, 2015, for a four family rental property located at 581 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. At the time of the exchange, the FMV of the two-family house was $870,000. During the time Bruce owned the two- family home, he never made any capital improvements, and he only took tax depreciation expense using MACRS depreciation for residential real property. The four-family house had an adjusted basis of $420,000 and a FMV of $950,000. The two-family home was subject to a $120,000 mortgage, which the buyer assumed. The Jones also paid $200,000 of cash as part of the transaction. Bruce immediately placed the four-family home in service on July 01, 2015. The Jones also rented a two-unit commercial retail building located at 1560 Avenue A, New York NY, which they purchased on December 01, 2014 and placed in service on January 01, 2015. Information for all three of the rental properties is listed below. In March 2015, Bruce decided to start his own business; a retail bicycle shop to be

 

located in NYC near Central Park called “Bruce’s Bikes.”

 

On April 20, 2015, Bruce

 

signed a 10-year lease at a monthly rental rate of $10,000, effective May 01, 2015, for

 

retail space on 110

 

th

 

Street and CPW.

 

The lease provided that Bruce was responsible for

 

the costs of improving the retail space for its intended use.

 

The terms of the lease also

 

provided that the first three months were rent-free so that Bruce could complete the

 

construction needed to operate a retail bike shop.

 

When Bruce executed the lease he paid

 

the landlord $20,000 as a security deposit. On May 01, 2015, Bruce paid a contractor

 

$225,000 to provide all construction work relating to the build-out, which included

 

electrical, plumbing, and carpentry.

 

On June 01, 2015, Bruce purchased the following

 

assets for the business:
