The purpose of the article was to identify the costs associated with hospital’s standby and
to define methodology of calculating and reporting these costs. Standby costs were defined as
the costs of the provision of 24-hour access to health care in hospitals. Reimbursing standby
costs on the basis of their costs would complement the Payment by Results model. The
costing model for calculation of standby costs has been designed and subjected to empirical
verification. The constructive approach method was used for this purpose and the verification
process took place in 11 hospitals in the area of obstetrics. The obtained results demonstrate
the practical applicability of the designed methodology.
