Cost Savings to Hospitals

HAIs cost hospitals billions of dollars a year.

The direct medical cost of HAIs to health care facilities exceeds $11 billion annually.* Tru-D may lower the risk of patients developing unnecessary and preventable infections transmitted by the environment. Reducing the incidences of health care infections by eradicating the pathogens that lie hidden in health care environments is Tru-D’s assurance of an immediate cost avoidance.

Tru-D can save on your bottom line while improving patient outcomes.

With HAI rates increasing, more superbugs discovered each year and increased financial accountability for infection rates, it’s critical for hospitals to provide the cleanest environments possible to protect patients and staff from infections.

A recent randomized clinical trial has concluded enhanced disinfection protocols that include Tru-D in your bundling package of current infection prevention modalities (i.e. hand washing and manual disinfection) may reduce the relative risk of colonization and hospital-associated infections (HAIs) and fill the gap in your performance improvement plan.

  • Tru-D was the obvious choice because we wanted something that was easy to use and reduced the probability of human error. We love the fact that our Tru-D robot doesn’t need to be repositioned to disinfect a specific area within a room.

  • We strive to ‘stay ahead of the curve’ when it comes to patient safety, so when evaluating disinfection processes, UV application was a natural next step. Tru-D’s ability to assess the space and antimicrobial UV dosage was key in this decision.

  • Having Tru-D in our facility helps ensure we are providing the safest environment possible for our patients and staff. We are consistently looking for proactive measures that we can take to remain on the leading-edge of technology and patient safety. Our environmental staff does an excellent job with...

    Chief Clinical Officer of Wray Community Hospital

  • Using an iPad outside the room, our staff turns on Tru-D remotely and begins a single disinfection cycle. The robot is able to compensate for room variables such as size, shape and contents to deliver the precise dose of UV energy needed throughout the entire room. The technology...

    CEO of Frye Regional Medical Center

  • The Sensor360® technology set Tru-D apart. Rather than estimating the necessary UV dose or moving a unit to multiple placements in a room, Tru-D is able to analyze a space and provide a measured dose of UV light to provide total room disinfection from a single cycle in...
