OR Today Webinar

Thousands of U.S. hospitals leverage single-use medical device (SUD) reprocessing as a proven strategy to significantly reduce supply chain costs and the amount of regulated medical waste generated in the OR. SUD reprocessing safely saves hospitals hundreds of millions of dollars and diverts tens of millions of pounds of waste annually in the U.S.
As SUD reprocessing has grown in recent years, new trends have emerged that can dramatically impact the success of a program in the OR – both positively and negatively. This session will provide an overview of those developments and offer tips for how to maximize both financial and environmental savings in the OR. For example, we’ll look at newly published data that can increase clinician support for SUD reprocessing, as well as give examples of contract arrangements that could unnecessarily limit your reprocessing savings potential.
