A system of costing services provided to patients undergoing surgical procedures was instigated in a private and a public Victorian hospital. The cost of managing the care of patients undergoing like surgical procedures was developed and compared. It is suggested that such a system of cost allocation would enable members of the medical profession to be more cost conscious.
