Manage costs

Bazian can not only help you improve quality of healthcare but also help manage your costs. There is, perhaps surprisingly, no evidence of a relationship between cost and quality in the provision of healthcare. Some examples of how Bazian have saved money while ensuring best possible care include:

  • Our analysis presented to NHS in 2005 identified potential annual savings of nearly 60% - £270 million on spend of £460 million - by switching consumers from higher cost to lower cost statins that deliver the same health outcomes
  • Our analysis of a wound care device conducted for a Primary Care Trust in 2006 identified potential annual savings of £4 million across the NHS by limiting use and following protocols related to optimal usage times
  • Our analysis of aromatase inhibitors conducted for a Primary Care Trust in 2006 identified potential savings of 60% - £2700 on current spend of £4500 per consumer - by delivering shorter courses of treatment that deliver better health outcomes than longer, more expensive courses of treatment
