Summary
  • As a result of the newly instituted Prospective Payment System (PPS), detailed cost accounting as become an industry-wide priority. The search for a system to meet this need at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, involved a selection of software to meet their needs. The software was required to: identify costs, either fixed or variable, at the procedure level; be able to create cost standards at the procedural level and compare the standard costs to actual incurred costs; be able to take costs at the procedural level and roll up to product lines through case mix management; and integrate the cost system with existing financial applications which supply necessary data to the costing process. Ways in which the resultant integrated package has offered numerous financial management benefits for the medical center are presented.
