Perioperative Supply Costs

228
-1

Published on

In most hospitals, the perioperative department drives the lion’s share of revenues-typically around 50-60%-while contributing 30-40% of the costs.1 Those costs largely reflect supply consumption. According to one study, supply costs accounted for 56 % of the total expense budget for a perioperative department, exceeding salary costs by more than 20%. 2

Facing major capital and operational budget pressure, most healthcare organizations are seeking more effective ways to reduce OR supply costs while preserving or even improving patient safety, operational efficiency, and staff productivity.
