A new podcast is on the rise. Beyond Clean, created by hosts Hank Balch and Justin Poulin, offers a creative look into the challenges facing sterile processing professionals, or those people committed to getting it right — every instrument, every time. Podcasts are the new way to reach targeted audiences, whether you are a company, an individual, or an influencer, podcasts are taking over the airways and there are tons of niches out there that appeal to people from all over. It is no wonder that services such as Lower Street and others like it are supporting these people who want to inform and entertain those listening in.
The team at Beyond Clean promises to bring on some of the biggest names in surgical instrument reprocessing and provide commentary on the biggest issues facing Sterile Processing professionals, facilities, administrators, manufacturers, and vendors. This should surely interest those in this industry as well as others who are in related sectors who want to learn more about these processes.
To that end, this week the podcast features AMDR’s President, Dan Vukelich – who speaks to the opportunities that single-use device (SUD) reprocessing offers. Host Justin Poulin notes, in the introduction to the podcast, that the cost-savings opportunity of SUD reprocessing to hospitals is enormous.
The podcast provides background information on how the industry evolved over time, the origins of SUD labeling, FDA regulation, how SUD reprocessing benefits hospitals, patients, the environment and in reducing healthcare costs, and AMDR collaborates with other organizations, such as AAMI.
