Health Economics

An area of significant financial strain on the medical and healthcare industry is patients with pressure ulcers. The cost of treating pressure ulcers is up to 10 times more than preventing them. In the Jönköping Municipality alone, the treatment of pressure ulcers for a year was estimated to cost 53 million Swedish kronor, just for emergency care. Using this as a health economics starting point, at Care of Sweden we have decided to be on the leading edge when it comes to providing knowledge and preventative products. We want our work to result in reduced suffering for patients and major cost savings for the healthcare industry.

Do you wish to take an active part in the prevention work, for example by ordering our Action Plan against pressure ulcers, our Pressure Ulcers card, take a training course in pressure ulcer prevention or test one of our products for free, please contact our Customers Services department on Tel. +46 (0)771-106 600, email: info@careofsweden.se.
