Conducting a cost analysis allows you to understand the costs associated with your services in order to help you set appropriate fees. Knowing your costs is essential to your sustainability as you navigate changes in service delivery and payment models. A cost analysis gives you the information you need to negotiate payment from third party payers. This three-part course shows you how to analyze your operations and expenses on an annual basis.
The first session introduces the Focused Cost Analysis (FCA) Methodology and Workbook, tools to conduct a cost analysis using your clinic’s cost data.
This session provides more information related to applying the FCA Methodology based on your utilization data.
This session brings the cost and utilization data together to help you complete a cost analysis. It also demonstrates how to update your cost analysis on an annual basis.
