Service Line Reporting (SLR)

What do you mean by Service Line Reporting (SLR)?

SLR means departments are accountable for their income and expenditure. This means that departments will be charged for all the resources it uses i.e. every blood test, every imaging or every cross specialty consult.

The idea is to use resources efficiently to ensure expenditure of departments do not exceed its income.

Watchout: Some departments may underuse resources (to balance books) to the detriment of patients. Proper governance structures and outcome data will be needed to avoid any patient consequences.
