An average 200-bed hospital could save approximately $2 million annually if it eliminates common but high-cost hospital-acquired conditions among inpatients, according to the Healthcare Management Council, Inc. (HMC), a Needham, MA-based company focusing on hospital and healthcare performance improvement. The information was compiled using federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) indicators and recent proprietary cost-benchmarking information, according to Shelley Burns, HMC’s director of knowledge management.
