Better Health is an organization focused on improving patient care and healthcare outcomes through health care quality improvement methods to provide better services at lower cost. With the average cost of a surgical site infection(SSI) estimated at around $34,400 and the average of 1 in 25 patients in a US acute care hospital having a healthcare-associated infection (HAI), improving patient safety and reducing costs are paramount. This business plan will detail reasons for the need for these services, and will do this by working alongside departments in hospitals to help them reduce their rates of HAI’s and improve their care processes through retraining and education. With improvements such as these, hospitals can not only reduce their costs and increase their profits, but also play a part in reducing the financial burden the American healthcare system is currently under.
