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.

Clinicaly Efficacy

Maury Regional Medical Centre OR

A 12 month study conducted by Maury Regional Medical Center in Columbia, Tennessee, showed a 73% reduction in SSIs (surgical site infections) over the previous year in the operating room where the Indigo‑Clean Continuous Environmental Disinfection system was installed. Study results also showed an 85% reduction in baceria in the operating room where Indigo‑Clean was used.
