Abstract

Clinical costing is a powerful tool to bridge the disconnect between financial and clinical information, and is an ideal platform to conduct research aimed at informing value-based clinical decision making. This chapter will provide an example of the utility of activity-based costing to elucidate the costs of complications following pancreaticoduodenectomy, a high acuity procedure with high costs. It will show the significance of clear clinical costing in targeting cost containment in a tertiary hospital environment.
