INFANT-Guardian® is Smart Prevention: Saving Lives AND Saving Money

Countless maternity reviews and confidential enquiries have identified that human errors and mis-interpretation of the fetal heart rate monitoring are preventing improvements in perinatal outcome. Up to 800 babies a year are stillborn or suffer catastrophic brain damage a year in the UK, with £500m being spent annually by the National Health Service to fund medical malpractice claims.

800

Babies a year are stillborn or suffer catastrophic brain damage a year in the UK.

£500m

is spent annually by the NHS to compensate babies born brain damaged following negligent care.

£200,000

is the average treatment cost per brain damaged baby. One baby saved would pay for INFANT-Guardian® for two years in most hospitals.

£14m

Savings to the NHS when just one clinical negligence claim is avoided.

Savings:

  • The immediate treatment costs per brain damaged baby is greater than £200,000. One baby saved would pay for INFANT-Guardian® for two years in most hospitals.

  • Clinical staff costs and legal services staff costs saved as a result of fewer serious case reviews in relation to stillbirths, neonatal deaths and brain damaged babies.

  • INFANT-Guardian® generates 100% accurate Payment By Results ensuring hospitals maximise their income.
