White paper shows how hospitals can integrate evidence of clinical value into their purchasing process

Hayes, Inc., a research and consulting firm that specializes in the evaluation of health technologies, is pleased to announce the immediate release of its latest publication, Application of Evidence-Based Value Analysis: Standardization of Surgical Mesh Products. This white paper presents a case study that shows how Hayes, as an outsourced research partner, helped one health system optimize its formulary and reduce annual costs associated with the purchase of surgical mesh products by 50%. Ms. Dee Donatelli, Senior Vice President, Provider Services, introduced the white paper on September 11, 2012, at the IDN Summit & Reverse Expo in Phoenix, AZ.

“Hayes’ approach to evidence-based value analysis enables healthcare systems to achieve sustainable cost savings, especially with regard to physician-preference items,” says Ms. Donatelli. “Although the particular project detailed in our newest white paper focused on surgical mesh, we can work with hospitals to apply our standardized methodology to all high-cost product categories such as contrast media, cardiac stents, and biologics.”

Application of Evidence-Based Value Analysis: Standardization of Surgical Mesh Products is the second white paper in a series of three to focus on evidence-based value analysis. It is available as a complimentary download from the Hayes.
