With Detailed Insights Over Time
WHAT’S YOUR PERIPHERAL IV SCORE?
As part of the Peripheral Advantage Program, we partner with your facility to collect real-world data to provide baseline and ongoing insights and analytics to healthcare leadership to help gauge the program’s impact on patient satisfaction, first stick success, IV catheter dwell time, and overall cost containment.
Using data captured during pre- and post-Snapshot, a Peripheral IV Score is calculated to quantify overall performance.
This is an example of sample data. Results will vary by institution.
Learn how your facility can focus on better outcomes right from the first stick.
