Harris Affinity invites its Decision Support (ADS) clients to a virtual working session on Friday, May 1 to discuss case costing best practices during COVID-19

The impact of the novel coronavirus on the healthcare system is unparalleled in recent history. The halting of elective procedures as well as public caution against visiting the ER has resulted in reductions in patient volumes and utilization by as much as 65%. The increased expenses related to pandemic preparation added to these factors result in unprecedented financial implications.

This virtual working group session offers an opportunity to share ideas with your case costing peers and discuss challenges you are facing at this time.

Harris Affinity will act as a facilitator during this session. We’d really like to hear from you, the experts in the fields that are living and breathing these changes. Below are some topics we plan to discuss; please contact us to add agenda items:

  • Tracking pandemic preparation expenses in the General Ledger – within a new GL department or existing ones
  • Allocating pandemic preparation costs – indirect vs. direct
  • Costing methods to accurately calculate months with reduced volumes
  • Reporting needs to understand the impact

Date: Friday, May 1, 2020

Time: 8 a.m. Pacific / 11 a.m. Eastern

Facilitators: Will Brooks and Simon Lugge
