Cost-effectiveness in Radiotherapy is often at the expense of the patients – that does not have to be.

The Radiotherapy Patient System can improve the efficiency of your radiation treatment center as well as patient comfort

There are three cost blocks that clinics and hospitals usually apply when cost-effectiveness is required. These include support staff, technical equipment and ongoing material requirements. Where this is not enough, physicians, care staff and even patients are pressed. This finds expression in the quality of care and treatments. It should be considered precisely if this actually contributes to cost-effectiveness or induces subsequent costs. As a matter of fact, the means that are quickly identified in a search for a solution to the matter of cost-effectiveness are not often enough. At first sight, quick savings seem possible – in a second step, resource mix shifts to an unfavorable position: Often at the expense of patient care.

Important Information are Neglected: Integrate more employees in cost-effectiveness

Employees in clinics see very precisely everyday, which processes are not efficient and could be improved. Where there are possibilities for standardization, there is always a potential for cost-effectiveness – and this must not be at the expense of the patient. An example of this is Radiotherapy Patient System extended: The simultaneous preparation of patients allows an optimal capacity of the expensive linear accelerator and a substantially larger number of radiations per day – a plus for cost-effectiveness. At the same time, the preparation time is improved for the patient because the work is done in a quiet environment and in a diligent way – a win-win situation for all stakeholders: Clinic management, staff and patients all benefit from it.

Cost-effectiveness in radiotherapy means a cross-discipline cooperation and thinking involving functions in clinical routine.

The latest developments in health care system speak for the expansion of competence centers like a high-performance radiation treatment center. As a matter of fact, usual structures and budgets for beds, departments and specialties have become obsolete. Cost-effectiveness means a cross-discipline cooperation and thinking involving functions in clinical routine. The trend is oriented towards cost-effectiveness, specialization and concentration of treatment priorities in larger units – and thus towards high-performance installations as they can be realized with RPS extended.
