User friendly design and easy implementation for patient level costing models
Designed for the NHS, Synergy delivers high quality patient data, financial reporting, management and data insight with ease and flexibility. Our patient level information and costing solution (PLICS) comes complete with prepopulated standards (datasets, cost allocations, methodologies), enabling NHS costing teams to easily and efficiently produce costs at the patient level as prescribed by NHSI and NHSE. Our patient level software is simple to set up, economical, high performing and secure (HSCN connected facility), with Healthcare Costing Standards already configured by CACI. Synergy helps ease the NHS costing process by allowing end users to allocate, review and visualise costs and income at a patient level, giving them more time to analyse service costing results.
Features and benefits of using a Patient Level Costing Solution (PLICS)
Our patient level information and costing system (PLICS) offers income integration meaning users can allocate income (at the GL level) to Patient Episodes using Flex Allocation queries based on the data from your Income system. This enables the full allocation of income down to patient level, which can be reviewed and visualised in an easy-to-use way through the Qlik Sense Service Line Reporting app.
