ECRI Institute Unveils Costs and Configurations for Top Hybrid OR Imaging Systems

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ECRI Institute, an independent nonprofit that researches the best approaches to improving patient care, announces the release of  a new "market analytics snapshot" on Hybrid Operating Rooms. With a focus on endovascular hybrid ORs, the report addresses the key issues driving this trend and includes top vendor pricing, market share data, and implementation considerations.


Available for free download, the paper is designed to help C-level decision makers, and clinical and purchasing directors implement a successful hybrid OR strategically, safely, and cost-effectively.

The at-a-glance report walks the reader through key factors to consider when planning a hybrid suite, including,

  • Typical room and equipment requirements
  • Estimated project costs
  • Average costs of top angiography imaging systems from GE, Philips, Siemens, and Toshiba
  • ECRI Institute's expert recommendations for successful implementation 

"Hybrid ORs cost about $3 to $4 million on average, so short-term ROI is questionable," states Jennifer Myers , ECRI Institute's vice president of SELECT health technology services. "However, we're seeing a lot of interest by hospitals who anticipate long-term benefits of using an endovascular hybrid OR to perform high-risk minimally invasive cardiac procedures."  

"Many hospitals are surprised to learn that a hybrid OR requires about double the space of a traditional OR and that more than 100 technologies may be required. The report's guidance and recommendations are based on real-world experience helping many of our member hospitals," says Thomas E. Skorup , MBA, FACHE, vice president of ECRI Institute's Applied Solutions Group.

The market intelligence featured in Hybrid Operating Rooms is powered by ECRI Institute's SELECTplus medical technology procurement advisory service, and strategic technology and medical equipment planning expertise from its Applied Solutions Group.  ECRI Institute's services are used by more than 5,000 hospitals and health systems worldwide. 

Hybrid Operating Rooms is available for download For additional information contact ECRI Institute by telephone at (610) 825-6000, ext. 5287; by e-mail at, or by mail at 5200 Butler Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462-1298, USA.
