Pricing Analyzer™

Establish Defensible, Competitive Pricing

Ensuring that prices not only cover costs, but are also defensible, transparent, and competitive, is an ongoing healthcare challenge. With reimbursements shrinking and more cost shifting to consumers, the ability to adapt quickly is essential to optimized pricing. Industry research reveals that 10 to 25 percent of a hospital or health system’s total business is charge-related, and that even a modest price increase can improve operating margin.

Pricing Analyzer™ simplifies and automates the price-modeling process, providing the speed and flexibility you need to adapt to dynamic market conditions. It helps your organization readily assess the potential impact of pricing and market changes, such as revenue shortfalls, while ensuring that pricing is transparent, defensible, and competitive.

Pricing Analysis for Transparent, Defensible and Competitive Pricing

To enable strategic pricing, Pricing Analyzer integrates data from disparate systems and automatically generates pricing models that factor in regulatory, reimbursement, cost, and market information. You’re then able to:

  • calculate payor mix and price sensitivity to assess the impact of changes
  • create and compare multiple pricing scenarios down to the service line, or aggregate to the facility
  • measure pricing against current industry benchmarks and competitors
  • evaluate and adjust pricing based on inflationary factors
  • provide complete documentation to key stakeholders and auditors
