Sector Expenditure Ratios
What it measures: The percentage of health care operational costs spent on Acute Care, Community Health Services, Continuing Care and Medical Remuneration.
- Acute Care: includes care for treatment of a disease or health episode primarily delivered in hospitals (e.g. Emergency, Critical Care, Inpatient Medicine)
- Community Health Services: includes delivery of public health, home care, primary care and select social/community programs funded by the WRHA
- Continuing Care: provides a continuum of medical and social services to support the needs of people living with chronic health problems, including personal care homes
- Medical Remuneration: The amount paid to physicians, either through physician claims to Manitoba Health or salaries.
Why it's important: Monitoring where health care operational costs are being allocated indicates when adjustments and action plans are required to support clinical activities. Higher percentages indicate a larger portion of expenditures are incurred in that particular sector, while lower percentages indicate a smaller portion of expenditures are incurred in the sector.
