CDC estimates that one out of 20 hospitalized patients will acquire an infection while receiving healthcare treatment for other conditions. Healthcare-associated infections cause significant death and illness among patients treated in U.S. healthcare institutions and add billions of dollars to healthcare costs. With the emergence of drug-resistant infections and new pathogens in health care settings, new strategies to detect and reduce health care-associated infections become even more critical. With Medicare no longer reimbursing healthcare facilities for the costs of treating certain preventable infections, hospitals are increasingly focusing on comprehensive infection control strategies to protect patients and bottom lines. Medical device manufacturers have an opportunity to differentiate themselves and meet the market need through devices that incorporate antimicrobial technologies.
