INVESTMENT & COST SAVINGS
Managing costs is an important aspect of running any organization – which is why working with Terumo Health Outcomes is a great investment. We can help you implement an optimized Patient Care Pathway that increases operational efficiency, which in turn improves profitability and has led to a savings of at least $1 million in most instances.
A large part of this efficiency relies on greater use of transradial access and same-day discharge. In a large national study1, the adjusted cost for PCI that incorporated transradial access and same-day discharge was $13,389, compared to $17,076 for traditional transfemoral access with overnight observation. That’s a difference of $3,687 per procedure – money that could be used to improve other aspects of your organization.
