Cost Savings & Patient Benefits
Save Your Operating Room Time & Money While Improving Patient Aftercare
By combining a topical skin adhesive with a self-adhering mesh strip, the exofin fusion® Skin Closure System may lower healthcare costs for your hospital and lead to improved patient outcomes with one easy application.
ASSISTING BUSY SURGEONS,
LOWERING OVERAL COSTS
Exofin fusion® may save your hospital money in two ways: by reducing the time individual patients spend in the OR, and by reducing the risk of acquiring a post-surgical site infection along the incision line.
Faster OR Procedures
It’s a simple formula. In the OR, time equals money. By providing faster closure speeds compared to traditional methods, exofin fusion® frees up operating rooms more quickly so hospitals may perform additional procedures each day. Other financial benefits include:
- Frees up other OR staff to assist busy surgeons
- Reduces the time the patient remains under anesthesia
- Less costly postoperative healthcare visits for bandage changes
Lower Readmission Risk
Our product creates an effective microbial barrier, reducing the likelihood of readmission due to infection or other complications.
Not only does exofin fusion® lower the risk of infection, our product also enhances the overall patient experience by improving patient comfort after surgery and simplifying self-care.
When using exofin fusion® to close, patients are better suited to administer self-care after surgery:
- Incisions closed utilizing the exofin fusion® skin closure system remain dry, keeping infection-causing bacteria and moisture away from the incision site and eliminating the need for applying and reapplying post-surgical dressings.
- The incision site is less noticeable than sites closed with staples, improving patient confidence and self-image post-surgery.
Our mesh strips are strong but flexible, contouring to the body for greater patient comfort. And the waterproof barrier allows patients to shower immediately after surgery. This can be especially beneficial for the new mom’s post C-section closure.
