PowerPerformance Manager - PPM
Increase Analysis | Target Profitability | Focus on Quality
PowerPerformance Manager (PPM) is a web-based system that calculates hospital service delivery costs, integrating private and public funding revenue, therefore providing accurate reports easily and regularly.
As a hospital administrator, you will always have your finger on the pulse of financial flow through your institution, with accurate reports at your fingertips.
Traditionally, little emphasis has been given to the profitability of delivering healthcare. But times have changed. The ability to understand and manage expenditure is now vital to the ongoing delivery of quality healthcare in the community.
PPM is the essential tool for efficient healthcare management, providing an intuitive and easy-to use system that supports task-oriented processing.
How will PPM Benefit my Organisation?
With PPM’s short implementation time, ease of setup and ongoing processing, you have more time to spend on analysing output rather than system maintenance. You can easily set up new patient data source systems without technical help from PHS, and PPM’s scheduler automates the data processing.
PPM’s detailed patient level costing and revenue data enables patient level profitability analysis, allowing the hospital to target those areas needing attention. The transparent costing setup easily tracks the source of costs, and revenue amounts can be calculated within the system or imported from outside sources.
Focus on Quality
With the focus on quality outcomes as well as costs, PPM enables you to report patient incidents using data from a patient safety and incident system, or using internally generated data such as the Classification of Hospital Acquired Diagnoses (CHADx) and Hospital Acquired Complications (HAC).
PPM’s intuitive Windows interface with visual controls makes it easy to navigate and provides an instant view of processing progress with status indicators so that you use your time effectively. The Task Dashboard enables monitoring of individual tasks and the ability to drill-down to processing details, alerting you to changes that need your attention.
PHS should be very proud to be part of the development, consulting, training, and be working on this EXCELLENT product.
The support that I have experienced has been great and makes a real difference during this period of the year when we are all experiencing time pressures to get the costs out to the Department.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

PPM Case Studies
Bairnsdale Regional Health Service
Empowerment, confidence and longevity in relationships remain a PowerHealth focus to add value to the client support process. These features have been core to our relationship with Bairnsdale Regional Health Service.
Based on the pain points being experienced, the Bairnsdale and PowerHealth team implemented PPM and a number
of initiatives to support users, building confidence and efficiency around the VCDC submission process and ongoing costing function.
Cabrini Health needed to understand their revenue and profitability to gain an edge in Hospital Purchaser-Provider Agreement (HPPA) price negotiations with private health insurance funds.
PPM Rulesets enabled Cabrini Health to accurately predict their future revenue and quantify private health fund provision options and price changes, to ensure optimum financial health.
PPM was implemented at Peninsula Health to improve the quality of clinical costing data results and address the credibility-gap that existed with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Victoria.
