"A 75 to 80 percent compliance with ERAS can mean 30 to 40 percent fewer complications in terms of infections and so on. This results in a shorter stay in hospital—sometimes by up to three days—for a subgroup of patients. In addition, we’re experiencing better use of resources and a reduction in healthcare costs."
