Abstract : The purpose of the Medical Expense and Performance Reporting System (MEPRS) for DoD Medical Operations is to provide a uniform healthcare cost management system for the Department of Defense. The MEPRS also provides detailed, uniform performance indicators, common expense classification by work centers, uniform reporting of personnel utilization data by work centers, and a cost assignment methodology. The MEPRS is the basis for establishing a uniform reporting methodology that provides consistent financial and operating performance data to assist managers who are responsible for healthcare delivery in the fixed military medical system. The MEPRS defines a set of functional work centers, applies a uniform performance measurement system, prescribes a cost assignment methodology, and obtains reported information in a standard format for each fixed medical treatment facility. Resource and performance data must reflect the resources used in delivering healthcare services; be recorded on a current, accurate, and complete basis in sufficient detail to permit management review and audit of the recorded and reported data; and comply with MEPRS functional work center requirements.
