PCB was first conceived in June 2009 to facilitate a request from Kings College Hospital NHS FT to benchmark patient level costing information between themselves and Guys & St Thomas' NHS FT with whom a proposed merger was to take place.
Unlike most Service Line Reporting systems currently available, iSLR provides complete integration with the General Ledger and allows for Actual Expenditure Information to be reported alongside budgetary data.
PERCS is a unique NHS costing solution which not only delivers detailed patient level costing but also takes in to account non patient care activities such as education & research.
In today's tough financial environment, the NHS is under pressure to drive down cost and increase efficiency whilst improving patient care. The Francis report published in February 2013 has raised awareness of the effect that cost pressures can have on the delivery of a quality service. Therefore, it is more important than ever to ensure that frontline staff are provided with the right tools and processes to meet all targets, not just the financial ones.
