It's not easy containing costs in the healthcare supply chain. Device pricing may trend downward over time, but the introduction of new models, features, and functionality typically comes at a pricea steep one.

Snapshot of Pricing Trends

The Modern Healthcare/ECRI Institute Technology Price Index provides a snapshot of the prices hospitals and other provider organizations are paying for supply and capital items based on price points submitted to ECRI Institute by members of its PriceGuide™ and SELECTplus® supply and capital procurement advisory services. Each month, we update the data posted on Modern Healthcare's website and provide some analysis on a few of the technologies.

  • The average cost of digital mammography systems (currently $441,997) is 11% higher than the average cost at this time last year because of increasing member interest in 3D systems. In 2015, 3D systems accounted for 80% of all interest in digital mammography compared to 90% in 2016. The current average cost of 3D systems is approximately 50% higher than that of 2D systems.

Any report or data provided should not be construed, interpreted or relied upon as a "complete" representation or aggregation of all industry data for a specific technology. In addition, the pricing data/analysis is an average, based upon one or more data configurations conducted on the ECRI Institute member data and price points. The monthly average prices are calculated using a three month rolling average. These averages are subject to change based upon the date of the report, and the data configurations.
