[Autom. eng. transl.] Healthcare policies have been directed at introducing additional significant budget cuts and downsizing measures, which strongly impact health care organizational goals. In addition, restrictive government policies aimed at reducing health care expenditures have been recently introduced and have increased the challenges for managerial and professional practices. Policy makers endorse the importance of cost accounting tools in order to improve an efficient cost management of healthcare organizations. This research is a first attempt to analyze the structure of "LA schedule" which detects healthcare costs in relation to the different healthcare services provided by NHS providers. The results of a descriptive analysis show the composition of the main cost aggregates while the results of the cluster analysis show the composition of costs aggregates in relation to the geographical location of healthcare organizations.
