Cost-Effectiveness of Fecal Management Systems to Ensure Economic Benefits

Fecal incontinence is a common condition that impacts the life of patients with an economic burden in hospitals. The usage of stool management systems in hospitals has contributed significant economic benefits to the society and health benefits to patients. The total cost associated with stool management systems is lower than the traditional management system when factors such as urinary tract infections (UTI) cost, labor cost, indirect costs, and total product related costs are taken into consideration.

For instance, a study conducted in Canada reported a decrease from 35% to 42% in the daily material costs after the usage of stool management systems as compared to the traditional methods of using bedpans, briefs, and linens for the treatment of fecal incontinence. According to the study, the average daily material cost per patient ranged between CA$100 - CA$140 with traditional management system. However, this cost reduced to over CA$60 - CA$90 with the usage of stool management systems.

Furthermore, the usage of stool management systems in patients with fecal incontinence enables the prevention of pressure ulcers, which is one of the common complications in such patients.
