CostMaster

Delivering a clear view of activity and cost variation

Download Datasheet

Understanding clinical variation is paramount to delivering high quality, value for money and sustainable healthcare services. Our cloud software for patient level costing, CostMaster, enables end-to-end cost reporting and management. 

Taking all the activity within the healthcare setting and applying the financial implications, from bandages to theatre activity, the solution generates a large, accurate dataset, which can help find operational efficiencies and deliver savings.

Through the cloud, datasets can be compared at multiple levels such as hospital, ward, consultant or service to provide a tailored insight to outline where activity exceeds the average and what is driving this additional cost enabling hospitals to make better-informed decisions. 

Why choose CostMaster

Provides targeted insights that drives savings and efficiencies across hospitals

Automating processes enabling less time generating reports and more time analysing outcomes

Improving financial management and audit the costing process for greater transparency and traceability

More effective financial management

CostMaster is a leading patient level and reference costing solution, developed especially to support healthcare requirements for reporting and local cost management. Reporting can be produced from executive level summary, providing an overall income and cost position, through to individual patient level costing to create a patient’s bill.

As healthcare costing standards evolve and develop, Civica have always responded by ensuring CostMaster fully meets the requirements from any national guidance. We are able to produce outputs for any NHS annual collections including those for the NHS Improvement and Costing Transformation Programme (CTP). These standards, being arguably the most sophisticated set of healthcare costing standards now used anywhere globally, means that CostMaster is well placed to deliver against standards in potentially any international health economy.

CostMaster has helped inform key stakeholders of the value of costing and encouraged better, more efficient working and improved costs.”
