OBJECTIVE To design the payment model for operating expenses in community health service centers of Pudong New Area. METHOD According to the ratios of operating expenses over workload, built-up area, equipment cost and number of personnel, the payment model for operating expenses was designed. The payment forecast and sensitivity analyses of the model were also taken. RESULTS The payment ratios of operating expenses over workload, equipment cost and number of personnel were 4.76 yuans/person, 166.92 yuans/ten thousand yuans and 313.82 yuans/person respectively; while the payment ratios of operating expenses were 80 yuans/m2 for high built-up area, 120 yuans/m2 for middle and 200 yuans/m2 for low. There was no significantly difference between simulated operating expenses and actual ones. The sensitivity analysis of the payment model showed good stability. CONCLUSION The payment model for operating expenses is simple and feasible in calculation and data-collection, it will help government make the budget of operating expenses and control the cost in community health service centers.
