Exergen Temporal Thermometers Reduces Hospital Costs by 90%

| November 28, 2018

Exergen Corporation announces that two new studies from Postgraduate Medical Journal indicate that when used throughout a hospital, Exergen TemporalScanners deliver substantial cost savings while providing accuracy.

Cost Minimization with Exergen

The first study, “Cost minimization analysis of thermometry in two different hospital systems,” from University Hospital Centre Zagreb and University of Michigan Hospitals. Each of these studies used the Exergen TAT-5000 to evaluate cost savings. Results dramatically favored TAT over tympanic thermometry at UHCZ.

The cost of consumables per measurement is 10 times less expensive for TAT temporal thermometer. This leads to considerable budget savings within a year of hospital-wide implementation. The UMH study concludes that routine use of Exergen TAT-5000 leads to cost savings over three years.

Exergen Minimizes the Costs of Temperature Monitoring

The second study, “Minimizing the costs of temperature monitoring in hospitals,” reveals that Exergen TAT-5000 temporal thermometer savings exceeded $1.7 million. This is when there are 10 beds per device for five years. The study indicates that other forms of thermometry; oral, axillary and rectal are not favorable.
