VEIN VISUALIZATION IS EMERGING AS THE STANDARD OF CARE.
Vein visualization is proven technology. Thousands of hospitals around the world have implemented it and many have now adopted it as their standard of care.
Hospitals are facing many challenges. Vein visualization can help meet these challenges.
- Patient satisfaction is core to today’s healthcare providers and patient satisfaction impacts procedure reimbursement.
- Controlling costs isn’t optional. It’s part of everything you do.
- Excellent patient care is why you go to work every day.
AccuVein can contribute to your mission. Here is some of the growing body of data supporting the implementation of vein visualization.
USING ACCUVEIN VEIN VISUALIZATION INCREASED THE LIKELIHOOD OF A SUCCESSFUL FIRST STICK BY 3.5 TIMES
A University Hospital in New England has recently completed a study of 150 adult patients of varying age, BMI and skin tone. The results strongly support the use of the AccuVein vein visualization for every patient.
IN FEMALES WITH A BMI OVER 35 THE TWO STICK SUCCESS RATE WENT FROM 50% TO 96% WITH ACCUVEIN
In reviewing the data, AccuVein also found that in the high-BMI Female cohort, that the addition of vein visualization significantly reduced the number of 2+ sticks.
The BMI of your patient population is on the rise. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association over 35% of the adult population is obese making them more likely to present with Difficult Venous Access (DVA).
PATIENT SATISFACTION AFFECTS EVERY LEVEL OF THE HEALTHCARE DELIVERY SYSTEM. VEIN VISUALIZATION CAN HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON PATIENT PERCEPTION.
CONTROLLING COSTS IS A NECESSARY PART OF HEALTHCARE DELIVERY.
ACCUVEIN CAN CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR GOALS.
EXCELLENT PATIENT CARE IS WHY YOU GO TO WORK EVERY DAY.
DIFFICULT VENOUS ACCESS IS AN EVERY-DAY PROBLEM.
