CORUS Activity-Based Costing Suite
Health Catalyst has partnered with industry-leading health systems to develop a next-generation costing system: the CORUS™ Suite. For the first time, CFOs, physicians, service line leaders, and clinical and financial analysts can dig deep into the true cost of providing care across the continuum and relate those costs to patient outcomes.

Impactful Innovation Stage (Click Here for Details)
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
With leaner margins and fewer resources, healthcare organizations can't adequately manage costs with traditional costing approaches that rely solely on RVUs. In the new reimbursement landscape, leaders need costing systems and data that can answer targeted questions and generate actionable insight.
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
Based on more granular data EMR, claims, payroll, and more, CORUS: Costing uses activities—not just RVUs—to deliver an accurate, comprehensive view of all your costs. CORUS: Costing provides a streamlined interface that guides your cost accountants through the costing and validation process.
The reports available in CORUS: Costing serve up the timely, actionable knowledge critical to improving outcomes today and sustaining the organization over the long term. These reports deliver an understanding of the true cost of the services healthcare systems provide, aggregating data from multiple source systems to reveal costs—and improvement opportunities—across the continuum by procedure, provider, and patient.
Level of adoption (i.e. list of customers/users, testimonials, etc.), if applicable
Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
Cost challenges in healthcare are threatening the future of many healthcare organizations and their ability to effectively care for patients. UPMC took on these challenges by partnering activity-based costing and service line operations to gain insight into cost and clinical variation.
• $3 million cost savings/avoidance over 2 years through the implementation of the ERAS program.
