Uniting Surgical Assets Under One Roof
Surgical Asset Centralization is a strategic blueprint to help build a more efficient sterile processing infrastructure and support long-term surgical growth. It is intended to organize and manage surgical instruments and equipment from a single, centralized location, which can exist as either an off-site or on-site reprocessing center.
Centralization is designed to improve the coordination, tracking and monitoring of surgical assets. This process helps to ensure timely availability and maintenance of assets, while also helping to reduce error and delay in the operating room. Facilities struggling with forecasting and inventory management issues can turn to Surgical
Asset Centralization to help optimize their supply chain and
use their resources more efficiently.
The Benefits of Surgical Asset Centralization
Reducing the time spent searching for instruments in the sterile processing department (SPD) could pave the way for more efficient surgeries with shorter patient wait times.
Strengthening the traceability and accountability of sterilization can help ensure instruments are thoroughly sterilized and ready for surgery.
Forecasting Future Growth
A properly sized SPD could better accommodate potential expansion and effectively leverage investments. Centralization can be a key enabler to help accelerate these growth plans.
Streamlining sterilization processes with centralization may reduce the risk of infections caused by improperly cleaned instruments.
Staff Morale and Retention
A modern, centralized work environment can help improve staff morale, alleviate unnecessary stress and reduce turnover rates by enhancing resource utilization.
