Digital Transformation of Urine Measurement
Ishida is a manufacturer of measuring and testing instruments, and Ishida Medical provides the medical industry with its innovative and state-of-the-art technology. Our urine measurement and recording system automatically monitors urine output and provides real-time accurate measurement data to healthcare professionals.
Our system saves time and labor compared with the conventional manual measurement process. It also helps reduce the risk of exposure for nurses and the risk of infection for patients.
Return On Investment
Hospitals are relying on travel nurses to address staffing shortages, with average hourly rates ranging from $120 to $150. By eliminating just 20 travel RN positions, a hospital can potentially save $3,083,600 per year.
Due to the pandemic, travel nurse salaries have increased significantly. Pre-pandemic, the average salary was $1,673 per week, but some travel nurses are now earning $4,000 or more per week.
Let's consider the cost of one travel nurse, $150 per hour, as a case study:
In an ICU setting, urine measurement and recording takes approximately 5 minutes per patient, twice a day.
This equates to a daily cost of $150, weekly cost of $1,050, monthly cost of $4,500, and yearly cost of $54,000.
This information is based on the article "COVID-19’s Impact On Nursing Shortages, The Rise Of Travel Nurses, And Price Gouging" published in Health Affairs Forefront on January 28, 2022 (DOI: 10.1377/forefront.20220125.695159).
The UMR home screen offers a clear and concise view of urine output measurements, providing instantaneous readouts at a glance. With its user-friendly interface, healthcare professionals can quickly and easily monitor urine output trends over time, allowing for rapid intervention and improved patient outcomes. The home screen also features customizable settings and alerts, ensuring that clinicians can stay on top of any changes in a patient's condition.
The Ishida Medical UMR system not only provides real-time urinary output information, but it also offers a unique advantage of capturing data from up to three distinct, selectable measurement intervals. This allows clinicians to view up to 72 hours of trend data, providing a comprehensive picture of urinary output patterns and any changes over time.
With this ability to detect changes in urine output trends, healthcare teams can proactively intervene, leading to better patient outcomes and potentially preventing costly complications such as acute kidney injury, congestive heart failure, and catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
