PowerPerformance Manager - PPM

Increase Analysis | Target Profitability | Focus on Quality

With increased emphasis on delivering sustainable healthcare and the rise in healthcare costs, the ongoing success of an organisation is now based on the ability to understand and manage cost and revenue, whilst providing quality patient care.

It is crucial for hospitals to understand profitable vs non-profitable services. PowerPerformance Manager (PPM) is an essential tool for efficient healthcare management, providing hospitals with an
easy-to-use solution with world leading costing and analytics functionality.

PPM is a web-based system that calculates service delivery costs and funding revenue, based on clinical and financial data consolidated from other healthcare systems.

PPM is the essential tool for efficient healthcare management, providing an intuitive and easy-to use system that supports task-oriented processing.


PPM Annual Digital Footprint

  • $40b+ of Australian Hospital Activity Costed 

  • 74% of all emergency department, inpatient admission and admitted Australian public episodes costed through PPM

*The above statistics are based on only Australian customers over a 12 month period


How will PPM Benefit my Organisation? 

Increase Analysis

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 PowerHealth, and PPM’s scheduler automates the data processing.

Target Profitability

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 (HACs).

Intuitive Interface

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.

Other Key Benefits include;

  • Costing- PPM calculates the true cost of care delivery to accurately measure business performance, and identify areas for cost savings or improvements.
