Lansdale, PA (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Hayes, Inc., a research and consulting firm that specializes in the evaluation of health technologies, recently published a new white paper highlighting practical strategies that hospitals and healthcare systems can use to simultaneously achieve world-class healthcare quality, improve patient outcomes, and realize cost savings. Evidence-Based Value Analysis: Using Scientific Evidence to Drive Quality and Reduce Costs is available as a complimentary download from the Hayes website.
“Most hospitals and healthcare systems already use traditional value-analysis processes that incorporate pricing and standardization strategies to the purchase of consumables, devices, and, in particular, physician preference items to drive down costs and improve efficiency,” says Dr. Winifred S. Hayes, President and CEO. “To improve the utilization and clinical value hospitals realize from their purchases, we advocate an evidence-based approach that includes an evaluation of effectiveness and safety, operational impact, and return on investment, both clinical and financial. When championed by key physicians and C-suite executives, this process can be highly successful.”
Hayes, Inc., an internationally recognized leader in health technology research and consulting, is dedicated to the delivery of high-quality healthcare and improved outcomes through the integration of evidence into decision making and policy development. The unbiased information and comparative-effectiveness analyses that we provide enable evidence-based decisions about acquiring, managing, and paying for health technologies.
