What is net patient revenue?
Net patient revenue (NPR) is the aggregate money generated from patient services collected from payors, including private insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare. Hospitals calculate their NPR to paint a clear picture of their financial strength, develop meaningful business strategies, and help ensure that all departments are adequately funded.
A hospital can calculate its net patient revenue by subtracting patient discounts from its total patient revenue. Metrics like contractual adjustments, charitable donations, foundation earnings, and bad debt are not included in these calculations.
