73% SSI Reduction Translates into Compelling ROI
Clinical testing has shown Indigo-Clean can achieve a continuous 70+ percent reduction of harmful bacteria in the environment. At the same time, recently published studies show that improved environmental hygiene compliance can reduce HAI rates by up to 32% for certain organisms.
These results, combined with the additional cost per patient due to HAI, suggest that preventing even a single infection would create a positive ROI and drive down costs for healthcare providers.
