What is a Statistical Budget Model for a Healthcare Provider?
Statistical budgets are considered essential planning templates for healthcare providers and are used by budget managers to enable their users to capture key non-financial items. Some of the main functionality in this type of budget input template is that it is parameter driven so each department can enter their own data and there can be multiple budget or forecast versions. The example shows months going across the columns and statistical items are listed down the rows. These include: 1) Different types of patient admits, 2) Percent of AR resolved, 3) Average charge per patient, 4) Patient days, and more. You find an example of this type of budget input template below.
Purpose of Statistical Budget Input Forms
Nonprofits and associations use Statistical Budget Input Forms to provide an easy way for managers to capture statistics as part of their overall budget process. When used as part of good business practices in a Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) department, an organization can improve its visibility to key revenue and expense drivers and optimize planning outcomes as well as reduce the chances that budgets are too focused purely on financial items.
