NEW YORK, Oct. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR), an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement, today announces compelling new data demonstrating further beneficial use of Daxor’s blood volume analysis technology presented during the Heart Failure Society of America’s Virtual Annual Scientific Meeting 2020.
New data titled, “Cost-effectiveness Analysis of Early Blood Volume-Guided Management in Hospitalized Heart Failure Patients” studied the economic benefits of the use of blood volume analysis in the population of heart failure patients, one of the largest cost-drivers of the national healthcare system. The data showed an “extremely cost-effective” incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of $10,200 which was 80% less costly than other therapies that are considered “good value” by common quality metrics. The data also revealed an average life-extension of 2.32 quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) in addition to the cost savings.
“The use of Daxor’s BVA-100® blood test in heart failure outcomes in this compelling study showed exceptional value by not only improving patient life span, but also at a cost which is significantly less than other commonly used therapies. Daxor’s blood test for use in treating heart failure is demonstrably better for patient life extension outcomes compared to many other treatment regimes, while also driving excellent economic value for hospital systems,” said Jonathan Feldschuh, Daxor’s Chief Scientific Officer.
Jean Oertel, VP of Commercialization and Customer Experience at Daxor stated, “This important data shows the full power of our diagnostic technology with the ability to achieve better outcomes at reduced costs. The value of Daxor’s BVA-100 blood test for hospital systems and payers managing heart failure is covered by both public and private insurance with CPT/APC coding, something that many other approved tests never achieve even years after market clearance by the FDA.”
