National Expense Observations
August proved to be another strong month for expenses at the national level. Continuing the trends in June and July, Total Expense per Adjusted Discharge was down compared to budgets and the previous year's actual expenses. Other components of expense—with the exception of FTEs per AOB—shared the same trend as June and July, declining compared to budget and the previous year's actual expenses. FTEs per AOB showed 0 percent variance from budget, but was down 2 percent compared to the previous year. Last month's National Hospital Flash Report predicted that expenses would continue to land below both budget and the previous year's activity. This reflects many hospitals' focus on starting strong in the new fiscal year.
