discounting

A business term for multiplying an amount by a discount rate to determine its present (“discounted”) value. The term has been broadly applied to geriatrics in the NHS and can be defined as the reduction in the costs and benefits of treatment by a fixed annual amount to take into account the declining “value" of an ageing patient over time.
