The economic analysis compared standard monitoring to the addition of Sensium’s vital sign monitoring on postoperative patients. “[The use of Sensium] is a cost-saving and cost-effective strategy, yielding improvements in recovery with decreased health resource use”, the researchers stated.
According to the study, the largest cost savings come from reduced lengths of stays and hospitals readmissions and could save £466 per patient. By utilising Sensium in a typical 30 bedded ward expecting to treat 1500 patients, hospitals could expect to see savings in the region of £700K per year.
“SensiumVitals could aid physicians in the identification of early deterioration and consequently provide cost-savings to the health system in the UK”, the researchers further noted.
