Hospitals can improve bottom line results -- Camfil. Video Shows How....
Date:8/1/2013

NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Hospitals and health care facilities are facing a fiscal crisis, and the pressure is mounting on them to reduce costs while maintaining safety, performance, and compliance. A new video from Camfil -- the world's leading provider of clean air solutions -- highlights that rethinking how purchasing decisions are made can bring surprising, and dramatic, savings. The key is to look not at initial or 'first' costs, but at total cost of ownership.

The Camfil video -- now available on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLRNXoDQg4E notes how the first cost of an air filter is only a small factor in the filter's overall lifetime costs. Indeed, for every dollar a hospital spends on air filters, it spends six dollars on electricity to push air through those filters. Basing decisions on 'first' cost becomes a losing proposition because it misses premium filters that can bring far greater value.

The solution, the video explains, is basing purchasing decisions on total cost of ownership, instead. For example, Camfil air filters use innovative designs and do cost more up front than traditional filters. By leveraging cutting-edge engineering Camfil air filters use less energy to push air through the filter. It also means the filters need to be changed less frequently -- lowering replacement, maintenance, and disposal costs. And, by using fine fiber media -- instead of the coarse fiber media that low-priced filters use - Camfil filters will maintain filtration efficiency over time.

So while Camfil's premium filters may have higher 'first' costs, they also reduce HVAC energy costs by at least 20 percent, installation costs by 50 percent, and disposal costs by 70 percent. This translates into dramatic savings since, as the video points out, every $1 saved has the impact on operating margin of a $20 increase in revenue.

The savings come without sacrificing performance. Indeed, it's just the opposite: By maintaining efficiency longer than traditional filters that quickly degrade, high-performance filters do a better job reducing risk for patients and staff, and maintaining compliance with standards and regulations.

Total cost of ownership isn't just the smart way to base hospital air filter purchases -- it is the winning way, reducing costs, improving sustainability, and assuring comfort and compliance.
