CAVA Robotics International helps hospitals and IDNs capture large robotic program cost savings while rapidly building their robotic program’s net margin, clinical quality, efficiency, and growth. CAVA client hospitals routinely achieve or exceed an ROI of 3-5x on our engagements, rapidly creating strong programs with outstanding patient outcomes and excellent financial performance.
CAVA leadership has engaged with hundreds of US hospitals with robotic programs. Fewer than 2 in 10 hospitals have insight into how to run a Best Practice robotics program—a blind spot that often costs a facility 7-figure losses while significantly diminishing clinical quality.
CAVA’s team of robotic surgeons, health economists, and data experts work quickly, transparently, and effectively—using our proprietary CAVAlytics™ data platform and world-class training —to turn around even the most challenged robotic programs, often in as little as 6 months. And for hospitals considering the launch of a new robotics program, CAVA provides support that ensures your program will be successful from day one, a transformation that translates into millions of dollars of bottom line impact.
