Sophisticated and flexible costing using hospital-wide costing rules with exceptions
Sophisticated costing — Easy to implement and maintain, using organisation-wide costing rules and identifying their exceptions. Analyse cost overruns by investigating your patient costing information down to length-of-stay, department, activity code, and finally down to the cost buckets that make up the total costs for a single activity.
Better prepare your Chart of Accounts for Patient Costing — Includes sophisticated tools to help you better prepare your Chart of Accounts for Patient Costing purposes, enabling users to easily move amounts between cost centres, create dummy cost centres and account codes, offset revenue against expenditure, and define how corporate overheads should be treated.
Accurate results — Built-in reconciliation and audit reports present accurate and consistent costing results. Each process is reconciled back to the original GL using mainstream and easy-to-use technology from Crystal Reports.
Create patient level activity data in the absence of feeder systems — Easily create patient level activity data for areas that do not have a feeder system, eg Obstetric Theatres, based on OPCS-4 or ICD-10 coding, or other feeder data or on Ward Transfer data.
Detailed costing, consolidated reporting — Perform costing at an activity level (eg chest X-ray), and consolidate the results to the patient, DRG, service, or any level.
Easily assign costs down to the service level — Assign costs down to the service and patient level based on duration, standard cost, actual charge, or equally across all services or using user-defined or industry-specific relative value units.
Improve patient safety — Quantify the actual costs of adverse events using information fed from an incident management system.
