Description

To succeed in population health initiatives, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) decided to adopt a service-line approach to care delivery. This reorganization, in turn, mandated the implementation of activity-based costing that would enable effective management of service lines. This presentation outlines UPMC’s methodologies for reorganizing care delivery and for understanding the true cost of care at the patient-activity level.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify best practices for adopting a service-line approach to care delivery that spans the care continuum
  • Recognize the steps for implementing an activity-based costing methodology that enables the service-line approach to care delivery
  • Evaluate a costing methodology that allocates every dollar of revenue and cost in the general ledger to patients
  • Analyze ways in which insights from systematic costing at the patient-activity level can be applied to clinical and operational practices
