Economic, clinical, and strategic value for your hospital
An investment that makes sense Strong economic, clinical, and strategic value for your hospital
Cellvizio is the imaging modality that fills a critical gap within the endoscopy suite , allowing appropriate utilization of healthcare resources. Cellvizio completes the endoscopy procedure offering, increasing attractiveness to patients and physicians, and ultimately increased volume due to a comprehensive treatment offering and increased referrals.
Attract more patients
Provide better treatment options
Avoid unnecessary procedures
Send patients to surgery sooner, when they need it
Cellvizio generates economies of scale
Cellvizio can be used across different departments. Today, Cellvizio can be shared between the GI endoscopy unit and the bronchoscopy unit, and in the future it will be available to more fields of indications (e.g. urology, surgery). The capital equipment can easily be cost-shared by two departments, and the Confocal Miniprobes can be managed separately by each department, depending on their indications and needs.
Cellvizio can also help save significant costs
Cellvizio can help reduce significant indirect costs associated with patient rescheduling by allowing diagnosis and therapy to be performed during a single “all-in-one” procedure.
Access to endomicroscopy was boosted thanks to increased CMS 2017 payment schedules for hospital and ambulatory surgical center services. When Cellvizio is used during esophagoscopies for GERD and Barrett's patients and for imaging pancreatic lesions, CPT Code 43252 (adding optical edmicroscopy) can be billed.
