More than 300 people registered for the webinar and 158 indvidual tuned in for the live presentation. The webinar received positive feedback in a post-webinar survey and a 3.7 rating on a 5-point scale.

“I was happy to find out that oneSource can provide the IFU on our tissue and other implants. Nurses sometimes forget to keep the literature that comes with the implants, so this is a great way to track them. It’s also an answer to The Joint Commission if they ask for our literature on the implants. I was also happy to hear that oneSource can integrate with the tissue tracking,” said OR Manager J. McIntyre.

“Due to the ever-changing technology in the medical field, being able to easily find and access current information on use, manuals and updates can be a daunting challenge. After participating in the oneSource webinar, I’ve realized the need and time saving potential they have to offer,” said J. McLaughlin, BMET II.

“Very informative and relevant to the industry. Easy to understand,” said N. Mendez, Senior Infection Control Coordinator.

“Very informative, provides insight into not only the product, but to how various components can prepare a hospital and specifically SPD in preparing for regulatory surveys,” said J. Olivares, Director of Perioperative Services.

“The oneSource Document Site database demonstration provided some excellent new tips for me such as the revision notification email. I plan for staff to renew their training, as well. Many thanks,” said H. Eason, Risk Manager.

“As always, the OR Today’s webinar series is extremely informative,” shared K. Monahan, Central Supply/Sterile Coordinator.

“It was refreshing to see a straightforward training that directly relates to our everyday duties,” said O. Caraballo, Sterile Processing Supervisor.

“This was a great webinar. oneSource has always been a great tool. With the new tissue aspect even better and the archive area … wow,” said L. Smith-Zuba, Director of Perioperative Services.
