Bard Champions for Healthcare Providers from Quality to Reducing Risk
In a changing healthcare landscape, medical facilities need to balance new quality standards for patient care with an increasing cost burden. Evidence-based decision-making has become essential, with a focus on positive patient outcomes and the provision of cost-effective care.
At Bard, we align with healthcare professionals globally to focus on elevating the quality of patient care, while discovering innovative ways to prevent potentially adverse effects and risk for both the patient and the clinician.
Key areas of focus include:
- Solutions Provider – Offering a comprehensive portfolio of products, and providing solutions for a range of procedures, conditions, and patient considerations.
- Radiation Reduction – Reducing radiation exposure to healthcare workers and patients.
- Healthcare Economics – Creating healthcare economics and outcomes tools and resources to help our customers understand the value Bard brings in terms of patient outcomes and health economics.
- Safety – Using the right product for the right procedure promotes the right outcome; and using Bard products can offer clinical benefits such as reducing infections and readmissions, while simultaneously reducing healthcare costs.
- Less Invasive/Smaller – Developing products that are smaller and less invasive.
- Reduced Complications – Designing products to help reduce complications, which is even more critical to our customers as they begin to be impacted financially for adverse events.
- Reduced Variability – Promoting product standardization that includes common approaches and processes designed to reduce the opportunities for error, and increase patient-centered outcomes. (Source: OHA 2012)
