20apr2:00 pmSUD Reprocessing: Financial and Environmental Impacts for the OR

Event Details


Certification: Eligible for one (1) continuing education (CE) hour by the State of California Board of Registered Nursing.

The 60-minute webinar will feature Daniel Vukelich, President and CEO of the Association of Medical Device Reprocessors.

Most U.S. hospitals leverage single-use medical device (SUD) reprocessing as a proven strategy to reduce supply chain costs and 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. This session will provide a primer on regulatory controls for SUD reprocessing in the US. Further, as SUD reprocessing has grown in recent years, new trends have emerged that can adversely impact the success of a program in the OR. This session will also 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.

During the presentation participants will learn to:
1. Understand regulatory controls that exist for “single-use” device reprocessing.
2. Understand drivers behind industry growth and its new competition as a result.
3. Identify and analyze contracting language that may limit savings potential.
4. Arm themselves with new tools and best practices to help maximize reprocessing savings potential.

About the Presenter: Daniel Vukelich is the president of the Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR), the global trade association representing the legal, regulatory and other trade interests of the commercial medical device reprocessing industry. Vukelich received his juris doctor degree from the American University’s Washington College of Law and a B.A. in political science and public communication from the American University in Washington, D.C.
