This calculator is intended to be used only for the purpose of assessing and demonstrating potential cost savings ranges under normalized hospital cost conditions. The results and outcomes are estimations only and should not be interpreted as a guarantee or warranty of similar results. It does not suggest a definitive review of actual costs and savings incurred in a hospital. Savings are estimates only and specific to the individual case. Savings may not be typical and may vary.
