Time-driven activity-based costing in an outpatient clinic environment: Development, relevance and managerial impact
Healthcare managers are continuously urged to provide better patient services at a lower cost.

Through a case study, we show how to perform a time-driven activity-based costing of five outpatient clinic's departments and provide evidence of the benefits of such an analysis.
