The quickest way to calculate case profit margins
Does trying to determine how profitable a case will be ever feel too time-consuming or challenging to figure out?
With HST Profit Forecast, surgery centers can automate and simplify case profitability estimations. By looking at their entire case schedule at a glance, ASCs can easily see their profit margin analysis for each case and are empowered to take next steps to improve or avoid unprofitable cases altogether.
Boost Center Profitability
With powerful case profit margin data, minimize unprofitable cases and maximize your center’s profits.
Reduce or Eliminate Unprofitable Cases
If a case will cost you money, avoid it altogether or take proactive next steps such as reducing supply costs.
Empower Leadership with Data
Help your leadership understand case profitability with clear data so they can make an informed decision for their facility.
How It Works
1. Set Your Cost Assumptions
Input your costs per OR minute for staff and overhead. Also, share your flat supplies costs and what percent of revenue should be assumed for implant costs until a representative submits an estimate.
2. Establish Your Auto-Flagging Settings
Create auto-flagging rules so you can flag when expected profit margins are too low and implant costs are too high. If your implant is too costly, easily reach out to your implant representative via the integration with HST Case Coordination to see how you can work together to reduce implant costs.
3. Generate Case Profit Margins
Once a case is scheduled, HST Profit Forecast pulls your case details from your practice management system to create your case profit estimation. From there, your profit margins are automatically calculated and displayed within seconds. What’s more, you can pull center-specific-Medicare rates via the integration with HST Clariti.
Choose which cases you proceed with knowing your expected profit margin so you can make the call if you let an unprofitable case through, reduce the case’s supply costs, or reject the case.

Let your team know when a case needs further review by automatically flagging a case according to revenue, profit margin, implant costs, and payor types.
