English translation:minute-value modules
Explanation:
In the absence of further information I'm going to suggest that the literal translation is probably appropriate. I think it refers to the fact that the amount of care people need is being calculated in terms of units of so many minutes (possibility single minutes in this case) - it could just be a jargon-speaker's way of saying that if someone needs 60 minutes of care a day they need 60 minute-value modules. It sounds as though there may be references in other places in the text which make this clearer.

Anesthesia and Pain Management often requires the ability to bill based on time units, as well as by procedure. In addition, insurance providers may set values for base factor units, according to the difficulty involved in administering the anesthesia. MDoffice seamlessly factors both time and base units into the billing. When surgeries increase in difficulty, the length of time will typically increase also. MDoffice enables you to operate under the standard Medicare fifteen minute value, as well as user-defined non-Medicare standard values.
