Over a 12 month period, Blue.Point worked closely with a 1,400 bed hospital system to assess their usage of evacuated containers. Blue.Point’s action plan helped identify that the hospital system purchased high cost evacuated containers in comparison to top performing hospitals. Research showed the evacuated container was for sterile field use. Hospital clinicians verified containers were not being used on a sterile field and only needed a sterile fluid path.
Based on Blue.Point’s action plan recommendations, the hospital moved to an evacuated container with sterile fluid paths to drive efficiency and generate savings of $87,772.
Blue.Point solutions revealed:
- System variance in comparison to top performing hospitals.
- The system was paying double the cost for a clinical feature (completely sterile bottle) not needed to care for their patients.
- Strategy to maintain clinical quality and obtain savings by eliminating costly features.
