Hayes, Inc. is dedicated to the transformation of healthcare delivery and improvement of patient outcomes through the integration of evidence into policy development and decision making. Dr. Winifred S. Hayes founded the company in 1989 in response to a growing need in the healthcare industry for evidence-based assessments of health technologies. Over the past two decades, Hayes has grown to become an internationally recognized research and consulting firm that evaluates a wide range of medical technologies to determine the impact on patient safety, health outcomes, resource utilization, and return on investment. We also help our clients, including hospitals, health plans, government programs, and employers, integrate evidence into their processes and decisions.
Hayes’ unbiased information enables health plans and government programs to develop defensible and transparent coverage policies, care management protocols, and best practice guidelines. Hospitals and healthcare systems rely on Hayes as a resource for strategic initiatives focused on safely reducing the cost of care while improving quality and clinical outcomes. Employers consider our customized support to be an important benefit for their employees. Our proprietary Hayes Rating has become a standard in the industry. Hayes believes strongly that evidence-based, clinically sound processes will improve both the quality and the cost-effectiveness of healthcare delivery in the United States and drive performance improvement under healthcare reform.
