10 Different Costing Schemes FactorsRCCRVUTDABC Calculation Mechanism Cost of procedure = RCC rate * procedure charge Cost of Resource = Total Dept. Cost/Total Dept. RVUs x RVUs for event Complex allocation based on Time taken by every resource Arbitrary numbers/assumptions used in calculation RCC rateRVUNone (very objective process) Does it take into account the difference in resource utilization patterns for different ? NoYes Ease of implementation Easy Difficult Process MappingNo Yes

11 Benefits of TDABC Better exclusion of research costs More objective allocation of overhead Treats excess capacity costs as separate Process mapping of treatments

12 Process Mapping: Key to TDABC Image from

13 TDABC Example: Plastic/Oral Surgery

14 TDABC Example: Cast Room

15 Improving Patient Quality Effects of process mapping –Exposes inefficiencies –Exposes deviations from clinical guidelines Alignment of incentives with bundled pricing Physician buy-in with pay for performance

16 Physician Pay for Performance Continue current payment arrangements –Physician services provided by BCH Physicians –Health insurance vs. BCH as payer Add pay for performance –Up to 5% of base pay StructureProcessOutcome

17 P4P Metrics StructureProcessOutcome Physicians on callFollow clinical guidelines Reduce length of stay Reduce readmissions Reduce hospital-acquired infections High patient satisfaction scores Coordinate care

18 BCH’s Value Proposition Patients Payers Quality Value

19 Next Steps Process mapping of other departments Compare TDABC costs with current charges –Use information to develop prices Meet with BCH Physicians – Get buy- in –Collaborate to develop P4P metrics
