Medicare spend per beneficiary (MSPB) information is a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services metric that reflects the average cost of an episode of care for Medicare patients. This measure is important to consider as part of a hospital’s national balanced scorecard, as it reflects executives’ efforts to transform the healthcare delivery system and manage the full continuum of care, including the prominent shift from inpatient to outpatient utilization.
