MEPRS: The Medical Expense and Performance Reporting System (MEPRS) provides a standardized method of comparing the cost, personnel utilization and efficiency of the military medical services. All expenses in operating the medical facility are considered, including personnel costs, supply and equipment expenses, housekeeping, utilities, TDY, and support costs such as police/fire protection, transportation, and facility maintenance. These costs are processed in a standardized format and applied against performance factors, such as patient visits, occupied bed days, and dispositions. This data is used to determine efficiency and provides a means to compare Tripler with other Army medical facilities, as well as Naval or Air Force facilities. The Uniform Chart of Account Personnel System (UCAPERS) is the Army's component of MEPRS to account for personnel time utilization.
