Savings Multiplication


“Let me get this straight, HYGIA is not just going to save me money and guarantee it, but will also multiply those savings over time?”

Mathematical Savings

When it comes to essential clinical commodities (ECCs), manufacturers will give you volume discounts. Reprocessors will give you deeper discounts—that is, if they can reprocess ECCs at all or if they claim to reprocess a few ECCs. (Learn More

Here at HYGIA, our sole focus is on ECCs. And with that focus results excellence and ability to do what it takes to multiply your hospital’s savings. So our answer differs from the typical “Yes, but…” Our answer is…

Yes. Add it up and see for yourself.

  1. We start with our pre-contract EEC improvement analyses to create a baseline guaranteed savings and discover the extent of potential savings over time, including recommendations for our unique donor program where we will buy items from you if you are not ready to fully implement.
  2. We implement a deep ongoing relationship that combines adult learning principles with performance analysis and recognition to maximize adoption and compliance at a unit-level throughout the hospital.
  3. We conduct monthly unit-based performance analysis and engage in continuous improvement engineering.
  4. We incorporate elements of frequent flier, loyalty, and recognition.
  5. We frequently interact with our customers using our web and on-site multiplication and management personnel.
  6. We create savings boosters to your program automatically to keep raising the bar on how much we save you.
  7. We monitor your progress summaries month-to-month, quarter-to-quarter, and year-to-year.
  8. We provide suggestions and, when appropriate, deliver new services.
  9. We help you add new ECCs to your mix.
  10. We start saving you hundreds of thousands of dollars, and then multiply your savings over time.
  • UAB Hospital has been a reprocessing partner with HYGIA since 1999. Within the first three years, savings through reprocessing progressed from $200,000 in the first year, to more than $300,000 in year two, and to over $400,000 in the third year. HYGIA’s collection protocols are popular because they require no extra work from our staff and the device return process has worked seamlessly through our JIT vendor.
