DESCRIPTION: The PERCENT field contains the workload percentage for each CDR account. QUASAR uses the following algorithm to calculate cost distributions. You specify the TOTAL PAID HOURS and any PASS-THROUGH ACCOUNTS (i.e., 6000-,
7000-, and 8000-series accounts). You must also enter administrative time associated with Associated Health Professions Traineeship or other VA Headquarters-sponsored training programs (.13 subaccount) and time
associated with preparing and presenting formal continuing education programs (.14 subaccount). You must enter any medical (.21 subaccount) or prosthetics (.22 subaccount) research hours. QUASAR calculates hours for
instruction/supervision of trainees (.12 subaccount). QUASAR computes the total education, research, and pass-through hours and subtracts this total from the total paid hours. The remainder is the number of hours for
patient care during the reporting period. QUASAR then computes the proportion of care associated with specific cost accounts (based on treating specialty) to the total number of hours of patient care.
