PCSI hosts a few key events each year, including an annual conference and two case mix schools. In addition, we offer newsletters and are exploring other opportunities for our members to share experiences and information throughout the year.
The annual conference is PCSI’s primary event where case mix researchers, analysts, government officials, etc. gather to discuss the latest in case mix. The annual conference provides an opportunity for participants to share and learn the latest in case-mix concepts from their peers through oral and poster presentation sessions, while also allowing an informal meeting of the minds of individuals from around the world. The annual conference not only provides a learning opportunity but also a socializing opportunity with friends and colleagues from around the globe.
PCSI also offers two educational events for a limited number of participants. The "Principles and Applications of Case-Mix in Health Systems all over the world" (formerly the Summer School) is for those new to case mix to immerse themselves in all aspects of case mix over a period of one week. This school has been offered for over 30 years and has drawn individuals from all over the world and is considered the best in case-mix learning. The "Advanced Design and Implementation of Case-Mix Funding Models" (formerly the Winter School) was first offered in January 2011 and is again being offered in 2016 with a focus on casemix based funding and analytical methods.
