While healthcare costs in the U.S. continue to skyrocket, there’s one area of savings with a multi-million dollar price tag just waiting to be untapped: medical equipment and supplies that go to waste. Experts say the healthcare sector creates 29 pounds of waste per staffed bed each day.
Single-use reprocessing can play a crucial role in helping hospitals achieve the triple aim of increasing quality, reducing costs and improving patient care. And now, a new agreement between Innovative Health and Medline ReNewal will help unlock significant savings to drive value for the hospital and divert waste from landfills.
Together, the joint reprocessing initiative will provide an extensive portfolio made up of deep medical/surgical offerings from Medline and cardiology and electrophysiology devices from Innovative Health. The combined solution is managed as a single program, so hospitals do not have to deal with two different suppliers.
