Quantification and Costing Tools

It is important to be able to quantify the unmet need for medical devices before seeking to procure new ones. In addition, the price to procure medical devices is often viewed as only the initial capital expense to purchase it. However, medical devices incur operating costs over time. It is essential to understand the initial and long-term costs associated with different purchasing options in order to make informed procurement choices. The Quantification and Costing Tools are Excel-based resources that quantify the potential need for oxygen and pulse oximeters; based on these estimates of need, they calculate the anticipated costs over time for meeting this need with different device types.

The resources include:

  • Quantification and Costing Tool: Oxygen Delivery Sources (Excel-based tool)
  • Quantification and Costing Tool: Pulse Oximetry Devices (Excel-based tool)
  • Quantification and Costing Tools for Oxygen and Pulse Oximetry fact sheet - available in English and French (PDF document)

This resource is part of the Oxygen Delivery Toolkit: Resources to plan and scale medical oxygen. The materials provided within the toolkit can be used together or separately, as needed. The complete toolkit is available at www.path.org/oxygen-delivery-toolkit.
