A small listing of the types of cost that can be automatically applied using a variety of methods to derive a truly comprehensive understanding of costs in your facility include
|Consumables||Direct / Variable||Theatre inventory items - sutures, gases, disposables, dressings, etc|
|Cycle life costs for theatre consumables - a 40x use laryngeal mask is allocated 1/40th of the purchase cost plus a CSSD charge for each of its 40 uses.|
|Indirect||Facility operating overheads - stationery, utilities, etc|
|Capital Items||Direct / Variable||Amortisation of theatre related equipment (TMS uses annual expense and applies pro-rata to all qualifying procedures using either time or instances of use) - Operating Microscope, Surgical Instrument(s)|
|Cyclic costs of theatre related equipment (TMS applies the cost each time there is a qualifying procedure) - CSSD charges for a tray of instruments, microscope lamp life charge, etc|
|Indirect / Fixed||Amortisation of facility equipment, fittings etc (TMS uses annual expense and applies pro-rata to all qualifying procedures using either time or instances of use) - air conditioning, telephone system, etc|
|Labour||Direct / Variable||Nursing staff (TMS allocates individuals against the procedure, a list, or multiple lists (e.g. recovery personnel) using its rotating roster management system (staff roles / duties are in the rostering system).|
|Indirect / Fixed||Administration / reception personnel labour costs, etc|
TMS workflow requirements are truly minimal. Clinical staff in theatre or recovery need only indicate where the use of the item has not been what is typical for that combination of surgeon and procedure.
Dox TMS makes that easy because the setup of the preference card for that combination of surgeon and procedure specifies those few items in the preference card which may change and only those items are shown on the recording systems used in theatre. Refer to the section on Preference Cards for more information.
TMS provides a wealth of standard reports. All of those reports have been developed using Crystal Reports - modify them and add your own.
Because of the richness and extent of the data made available many of the reports automatically export their content to Pivot Tables in MS Excel 2007 so you can explore and drill down to investigate cause and effect scenarios.
