OR Today Features AMDR’s Dan Vukelich

SUD Reprocessing was featured during yesterday’s OR Today Webinar Series for continuing education credits. “SUD Reprocessing: Financial & Environmental Impacts for the OR” is archived on the OR Today Website, and was presented by Dan Vukelich, President of the Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR).  Topics covered included reprocessing as a proven strategy to help hospitals reduce supply chain costs and reduce medical waste; the origins of the industry and its history as an FDA-regulated industry;  proven safety track record; and corresponding case studies and peer-reviewed literature. Of special interest:  AMDR’s tip sheet for how to combat vendor push-back and contracting pitfalls that can limit savings. And those savings from reprocessing? Significant: AMDR estimates that U.S. hospitals save nearly half a billion dollars a year through reprocessing programs.
