Since 2011 PCSI has offered a Winter School focused on casemix-based funding systems and analytical methods. The 2011 and 2012 Winter Schools were held in Dublin, Ireland. In recognition that PCSI’s membership spans the globe and to provide members in Asia and the Pacific a better opportunity to attend, the 2013 School was held in Sydney, Australia. The 2014 Winter School will be held in Lisbon, Portugal.
The first Case Mix Summer School was hosted in Italy in 1998 and continued to be held there through 2005. Since then it has been hosted in France and in 2010 and 2011 it was hosted in Portugal. In future years, the School is expected to be hosted by different countries but the content will remain the same so that those attending continue to receive high quality information and instruction. Information to attend the next Summer School is included below.
Further queries regarding the Summer School should be addressed to the school director Jean-Marie Rodrigues(firstname.lastname@example.org).
The PCSI Case Mix Winter School “Design and Implementation of Activity Based Funding” is meant to complement the long-established Summer School and provide students with solid and comprehensive expertise in the design, implementation and monitoring of case mix funding mechanisms.
Topics covered will include case mix system design, patient level costing, calculation of cost weights and price setting, setting of activity targets, outlier flagging, exception payments, monitoring and evaluation, analytical techniques, and hands-on analysis of data.
Inquiries regarding the 2014 School on Activity Based Funding can be addressed to school director, Jeff Hatcher at email@example.com
