Lansdale, PA (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Hayes, Inc. (http://www.hayesinc.com), the industry leader in providing unbiased, evidence-based health technology assessments, announces the publication of its Hybrid Operating Room Trend Report. Hospitals and insurers worldwide rely on Hayes trend analyses and other research to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new medical technologies and analyze their impact on cost and patient outcomes.
As more and more hospitals use less-invasive approaches to replace faulty heart valves and insert stents into narrowed arteries, traditional imaging equipment and OR configurations have become inadequate. To better serve patients and accommodate the imaging and surgical needs associated with new and emerging minimally invasive technologies and procedures, many hospitals are installing hybrid ORs, which combine advanced imaging systems with surgical equipment in the sterile OR setting.
Hybrid ORs, which cost several million dollars to purchase and install, represent a significant capital expense for hospitals operating in today’s challenging fiscal environment. The Hayes Hybrid OR Trend Report summarizes the healthcare trends driving the demand for hybrid ORs and the clinical and technical considerations associated with installing and operating hybrid ORs for cardiovascular or neurointerventional procedures. Market demand factors, future outlook, and cost issues are also included, as is an analysis of the published research on the clinical and operational benefits. Hybrid ORs have the potential to streamline the way hospitals deliver care, lower the risk of medical errors, improve patient outcomes, and increase revenue, giving hospitals a competitive market advantage. The Hayes Hybrid OR Trend Report can help hospital administrators and clinicians make cost-effective decisions about installing and operating hybrid ORs in their facilities.
