Improve Efficiency. Reduce Cost.
Improve the efficiency of the emergency department and reduce overall costs by quickly treating patients who require immediate care.
Improve ED Efficiency
A study revealed that a hospital’s emergency department staffing costs averaged $58.20 per patient bed-hour.⁴ Conventional diagnostic protocols can cause these costs to accumulate and increase wait times in the ED.
Reduce the Cost of Treatment
Poor low-end sensitivity can increase the risk of missing early presenters for AMI, increasing the time and cost for treatment.
Based on average cost per bed-hour⁴ and a shorter serial testing interval (0/1/2 hour versus 0/3/6 hour), potential savings for 1,000 emergency department chest pain visits could total $232,800.⁴
