What it measures: A summary of financial performance between the beginning of the year and the current date, compared to the budgeted financial performance from the beginning of the year to the current date.
Why it’s important: Monitoring actual expenditures against budgeted projections is an indicator of the long-term sustainability and financial performance of the health care system. When actual expenditures exceed the proposed budget, a deficit position is recorded. When expenditures are below the proposed budget a surplus is recorded.
How it’s calculated: Year-to-Date Expenditures minus Year-to-Date Budget.
