For analyzing the ability of software systems of Medical Science Universities in supporting the activity-based costing (ABC), complementary information are gathered by interview, review documents, observation and systematic and field studies in 2012, along with investigating software systems in case study (Medical Science University of Qom). Research finding shows that different software related to fiscal area has necessary ability for data feeding and tracing information related to measurement drivers and it executes the first stage of ABC system which is allocation of the consumed resources to cost centers, but this capacity is not totality used. According to this research, for establishing suitable foundation, improving current software system and performing structural improvement (technical architecture) are needed for performing activity based costing.
