Innovative "Reusable-Disposable" Surgical Solutions

The Problem: Reducing cost of surgical supplies for Hospitals

According to the American Hospital Association, hospital profit margins are slim: ranging from 4-8%.  And payments from government programs are fixed cost and often money losers for the hospital.  The average reimbursement for Medicare coronary artery bypass surgery is $31,000*.  At year five, Cardiogenerics products would save hospitals $1300 or over 4% per Medicare reimbursed surgery.  

CardioGenerics reusable-disposable devices could mean the difference between profit and loss for the average hospital’s cardiac surgery program.
