Patient Level Costing
We have worked on Patient Level Costing (PLICS) with dozens of NHS organisations since the methodology was introduced by the NHS regulator in 2007.
Every NHS organisation is different and this is particularly true when it comes to costing. Our approach is to first understand the unique needs of our clients and then to deploy solutions that will work for them. We have no prescribed solutions, although we expect and advise our clients to sit within the Costing Transformation Programme (CTP) guidance on a 'comply or explain' basis.
Given the length of time we have worked on PLICS engagements and the breadth of our client base we also look to continually spread good practice and advice.
Although we are the UK licensee for the leading NHS costing tool, PCG Monitor, we have worked on all the software solutions currently available and endorsed by NHS Improvement, including Prodacapo, Civica, IQVIA, CACI and Jeton. We continue to support a number of clients across these platforms, so please don't hesitate to contact us should you require consultancy support on these products. Generally we are considerably cheaper than any other comparable external option open to you.
