Software Application Within the Suite

Activity-Based Costing

Enables cost managers, cost accountants, and other team members responsible for costing to run costing cycles and review periods; configure general ledger, cost model, and costing categories; complete costing-relating tasks, such as allocations; and view reports. Activity-Based Costing provides actionable insights into the real drivers of cost variation by leveraging actual patient resource utilization data from the EMR and other departmental sources—not just charge codes—to provide actionable insight into the real drivers of cost variation.
