Objectives: To evaluate the impact of the global budget on health care costs of one pilot hospital by comparatively analyzing the data before and after the policy implementation, and then put forward proposals and suggestion for the improvement of the policy.
Methods: To collect the insured patient data before and after the implementation of the global budget policy in the pilot hospital, using SPSS software to do the rank test and the chi-square test, analyzing the changes in relevant indicators before and after implementation. Results: After the implementation of global budget policy, the volume, average length of stay and the percentage of the drug expenditure have been significantly changed, but cost per time didn’t change significantly in the pilot hospital.
Conclusion: It has been shown that the pilot hospital actively cooperated with the policy adjustments. But the case is that the hospital should adjust the way of management, explore ways of DRGs, and standardize medical service processes, control and supervision the health care indicators of global budget reasonably.
