Comprehensive local payment by results solution simplifies activity and income monitoring to support improved financial management
29 September, 2009 – Ardentia has launched its Service Level Agreement (SLA) module, a solution designed to simplify monitoring and reporting on income and activity for NHS Trusts and to support improved financial management.
The SLA module provides a single information service covering both national and local tariff contracts and activity, enabling Trusts to generate data for invoicing and Commissioners to check what they are being charged, as well as handling future plans and comparing them with actual values. This gives a more accurate indication of whether care is being delivered as planned.
By uploading contract details onto the SLA data warehouse and defining the rules that link contracts to activity data and whether the payment tariff is national PbR or non-PbR, the module provides a powerful and flexible means of accessing information about activity and its financial value from a single source.
An additional benefit of the SLA module is that it is built on Ardentia’s proven HealthWare data warehousing technology, meaning staff have access to powerful in-built data validation and transformation capabilities, giving them access to the high quality data needed to support robust Financial management.
