Abstract A discordancy test approach is proposed to identify outliers of inpatient length of stay. This has implications not only for benchmarking service delivery but also for linking budget allocation procedures to efficiency of health service provisions. The effects of shifting trim point thresholds on hospital payments are assessed in a case study of a group of obstetrical patients.
