HALYARD* 5-Step Plan For A Healthier, More Efficient OR

Over the years, customers who have conducted facility-wide utilization reviews with the HALYARD* brand have realized an average of 18% savings on surgical supplies.  For many hospitals, that’s tens of thousands of dollars every year.

The HALYARD* benchmarking tool compares similar-size facilities to establish average costs per procedure before and after a utilization review. We are able to mine the procedure-specific data to understand how those savings were achieved by looking at a side-by-side comparison of product being used before and after various recommended alternatives.

Work with Halyard to identify your target areas for improvement by  understanding where your high-volume and high-cost procedures are.
We uncover savings opportunities by reviewing your pack lists, observing procedures, studying product usage and costs, and meeting with your team to understand procedure needs.
We will document observations and provide recommendations without sacrificing protection or performance.
We will provide in-servicing and work with your clinical staff members and CPT provider to help put your plan to work.
As you achieve the benefits of your plan, we’ll be there to help identify new opportunities for improvements and savings.
