Two Large Independent Economic Studies Demonstrated 3M™ V.A.C.® Therapy Delivers Lower Total Cost to Treat
Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has proven benefits in certain wound types. Numerous NPWT systems are available, and wound care professionals must consider several factors when choosing the system that best suits their patient’s needs. One of these factors is cost.
This white paper, sponsored by 3M Health Care, details the methodology and results of two large studies comparing the total and wound-related costs of the 3M™ V.A.C.® Therapy System and a competing NPWT system. The studies concluded that the V.A.C.® Therapy System had lower total, wound-related, and patient out-of-pocket costs than the competing NPWT system. The duration of therapy was also shorter with the V.A.C.® Therapy System.
In this era of cost containment, wound care professionals who are weighing different NPWT systems will find this information helpful.
