AbstractThe financing system of health care in many European countries is based on Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG). In this system all treated patients are classified, based on selected clinical characteristics, into patient groups (case mixes) which consume the resources of the hospital in a similar manner. In such situation the payer should be interested in information about the unit costs calculated in hospitals that are important factor to value medical services. The article describes the cost accounting system rules used in hospitals of selected European countries that send their cost information to the central level where they are used in the pricing decisions made by a payer.
