Selected problems of implementing systems of management accounting in hospitals in Poland

Roman Kotapski , Michał Chalastra


Medical activity carried out by hospitals is characterized by the very complex nature of the conducted processes. Individual medical procedures require the use of many diverse resources, and their cost is also very high. This is why the traditional cost accounting applied in the past has now become insufficient. Hospitals have started to implement the systems of management accounting, and also IT systems which support the functioning of management accounting, which unfortunately in many cases does not function properly as a result of several factors. Based on their own implementations, the authors of this paper identify selected problems of implementing and functioning of management accounting systems in hospitals. The results of their research can help with improving the functioning of management accounting in hospitals.
