Cost Savings Report for Hospitals

The table below illustrates savings that can be made by various reporting units (such as pharmacy, ward or care unit) using Pharmapod patient safety software instead of traditional methods.


The calculations and measurements are from a detailed time and motion study (Pharmapod Analysis of Cost Savings, Aug 2015) that included analysis of each of the stages involved in each process. For example, when reporting a patient safety incident, initial entry to verification, follow up, validation, assessment and closure.
