What is net patient revenue?

Net patient revenue is the total money that a healthcare organization generates from patient services. Money is collected from payors, including private insurance and Medicare and Medicaid.

The net patient revenue calculation is as follows:

Net patient revenue = total patient revenues - patient discounts.

Net revenue vs gross revenue

While net revenue is the total amount of money earned through providing patient services, minus expenses, gross revenue is just the total amount of money earned by providing patient services.

What is the average net patient revenue for a hospital in Georgia?

Net patient revenue varies widely from hospital to hospital based on daily patient population, payor mix, procedures performed, and other factors.

In Georgia, the average NPR is around $217 million, ranging from just over $5.10 million at Roosevelt Warm Springs Long Term Acute Hospital to Northside Hospital Atlanta’s whopping $2.79 billion.
