Abstract

Productivity management through cost analysis is fundamental in today’s health care. A description of a cost analysis and management reporting system based on relative value units is presented in this article along with a practical method of identifying variable, fixed, and total costs for occupational therapy. Occupational therapy management participation in the cost analysis process is also discussed.
