New Report on Hospital-Acquired Infections by Kalorama Information30 Dec 2011 • by Natalie Aster
A hospital-acquired infection (HAI) is a new infection that develops in a patient during hospitalization. It is usually defined as an infection that is identified at least forty-eight to seventy-two hours following admission, so infections incubating, but not clinically apparent, at admission are excluded. This type of infection is also known as a nosocomial infection (or more generically healthcare-associated infections).
The industry has responded with a variety of testing and treatment products. The report “Hospital-Acquired Infections: Diagnostic Markets and Testing Developments, Treatments, Key Competitors and Trends” by Kalorama Information presents the market opportunities for testing such infections and the role of treatment and provided:

World market for testing and treatment products for HAI will reach $10.3 billion in 2015, up from $9 billion in 2010, with higher growth experienced in the testing segment.
Kalorama's report finds nosocomial infections are an inherent part of any healthcare system and have a 5% infection rate of the 40 million hospital visits a year, causing 100,000 deaths in the U.S. annually. In an effort to decrease the rate of fatality, hospitals are shifting focus towards rapid discovery and treatment of nosocomial infections, driving sales of testing products.
