from chaos to consistency

With Featured Guests:
Chris Stewart & Jeff Wertz

In a perfect world, vendors and manufacturers would consult with both Sterile Processing and Operating Room professionals as they build their products. This would ensure that any products put in place would help solve the chaotic nature of these departments rather than add to it. What if you were to learn that there is a solution that has taken this approach? A solution that turns chaos into consistency. On this week’s release of the Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight Series, we speak with Chris Stewart and Jeff Wertz from Surgio Health about their tray tracking system that addresses everything from communication and visibility to the data that you need as a department leader to finally explain things like why cases are being delayed or why you’re succeeding in reducing SSI rates in a particular service line.

safety at the source

With Featured Guest:
Pat Leach

The words ‘biofilm’ and ‘disinfection’ are commonly used in Sterile Processing departments, but did you know these terms are also applicable when talking about your hospital’s HVAC system? In the healthcare setting, we often take for granted the air around us. We cannot see it, but we know it’s there and it has the ability to carry dangerous microorganisms with it from room to room and floor to floor throughout the hospital. On this episode of the Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight Series we talk with Pat Leach, Business Development Manager at Alfa Laval, about the system that acts as the lungs of the hospital--conditioning, cleaning and carrying air to occupants throughout the building. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is capable of allowing biofilms living inside of it to survive, thrive and be carried throughout the hospital. Pat Leach discusses an HVAC technology that combines Liquid desiccant solution dehumidification and Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) to disinfect the air, remove pathogens in the air stream, and ensure that the air we breathe is helping rather than hurting healthcare workers and the patients we serve. Tune in now for this discussion!

If someone told you there is a way to process a total knee set in 1 hour 23 minutes vs. 4 hours and 7 minutes, would you hesitate?

Smart Data

With Featured Guest:
David Rowe & Dr. Martyn Knowles

Picture this: your hospital has access to a magic button that would reduce SPD volume by up to 100 trays per week and reduce tray sizes by over 35%. Sound too good to be true? On this release of the Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight series, we talk to David Rowe and Dr. Martyn Knowles from Operative Flow Technologies. OpFlow, a data driven product focused on value optimization, uses actual instrument or supply usage data by case- collected during the case in the OR- to rationalize instruments in trays. One of the big problems we are seeing in hospitals today is that the number of cases is not changing dramatically but the amount of instrumentation, disposables and trays is going up disproportionately to the amount of resources being filtered into the sterile processing department. David and Dr. Knowles talk specifically about how the data-driven OpFlow approach will reduce the backlog and improve SPD throughput, enhancing both the quality and efficiency of SPD. Tune in to this interview to find out how your hospital could use smart data and OpFlow to save over $2.2 million over the next few years by removing excess, unused instruments.

With Featured Guest: Jason Moonen

Has your OR team ever grabbed a power tool off of the backtable only to be horrified when bioburden fell out of it? On this Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight™ with Jason Moonen, Product Manager at Aesculap, we talk about why this experience doesn't have to happen! The ELAN® 4 Power System is the only micro power system that you can flush internally from proximal to distal end.

With Featured Guest:
Alex Ebner

When our industry talks about "instrument quality," what do we really mean? What does that quality standard actually give us? And where does it actually begin? Joining us for this Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight™ is Alex Ebner, CEO of Wiggins Medical, to speak with us about the origin of surgical instrument quality that reaches back to what some describe as the epicenter of instrument manufacturing excellence, Tuttlingen, Germany. Why is it so important to design devices that can effectively be cleaned? What is the importance of sharp & durable rongeurs in the surgical setting? And what is so special about this little German town that gets so much attention from the surgical instrument world? Listen as Alex shares his experiences in working with manufacturers in Tuttlingen, and outlines his team's vision for providing quality made instruments to provide safer care for surgical patients. This story it bigger than one instrument or even one company. It will take you to the core of who we are as an industry committed to quality -- from the raw stainless steel to the first incision.

There are things that people do well and things that machines do well. By combining those two, we get the optimal result of a collaboration between humans and machines. Parts of the average Sterile Processing Department already include some kind of automation. But what about all those other dangerous, boring, or overly complex tasks that Sterile Processing technicians struggle to complete on a daily basis? The technology that helps us solve those challenges already exists and on this week's release of the Vendor Spotlight Series we talk with Braun Kiess, Co-Founder and Chief Sales and Finance Officer of RST Automation, about the AIM Tray Assembly and AIM Peel Pack Systems. These systems are changing the way Sterile Processing Departments are utilizing technology to improve quality, efficiency, and effectiveness. Can humans collaborate with technology? They can and should! Listen now to find out why.

Amy Flynn

When someone asks if storage is an issue for your Sterile Processing department, what is your first response…to roll your eyes perhaps? But what if looking up…is the ticket? Let’s face it, the need for space in Sterile Processing is an issue for many healthcare facilities and the implications of not having enough storage to keep up with the demand of the OR means potential revenue lost. On this episode of the Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight Series we talk with Amy Flynn, North American OR/CS Market Manager for Hänel Storage Systems about the lessons learned from other industries in using vertical space to combat the storage issues that come with adding new procedures and equipment. The vertical storage carousel technology that has benefited countless industries is available to help decrease the time it takes to pick a case cart, integrate with tracking systems to give real-time inventory data, protect the staff in your department from an ergonomic perspective, and ultimately make better use of what little storage space is available. It’s time to look up and tune in to learn more.
