APIC Cost of Healthcare-Associated Infections Model

This cost calculator is designed to demonstrate the costs associated with infections and the savings realized by preventing them. It also provides tables and graphs that describe the financial impact of infections at your healthcare institution. By using your own data, you can customize this report for your respective facility. If you don’t have your own data, APIC has provided data from national studies to estimate economic endpoints. Use of your healthcare organization’s data will reflect the financial impact of infections to your institution.
