  • CM14E5-Greening the Supply Chain: GPO Sustainability Update

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Recorded on 06/05/2014 - What we buy matters in health care and is a key part of any sustainability journey. A hospital's mission is to protect health, and this mission applies to patients, staff and the entire community. And yet every year, the health care industry spends hundreds of billions of dollars on medical products that have significant environmental impacts. High usage of energy and water, exposure to harmful chemicals and emissions, and tons of waste and pollution created by the products used then become exposure and environmental concerns for patients, staff, and surrounding communities.

    Session Description 

    What we buy matters in health care and is a key part of any sustainability journey. A hospital's mission is to protect health, and this mission applies to patients, staff and the entire community. And yet every year, the health care industry spends hundreds of billions of dollars on medical products that have significant environmental impacts. High usage of energy and water, exposure to harmful chemicals and emissions, and tons of waste and pollution created by the products used then become exposure and environmental concerns for patients, staff, and surrounding communities. Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) recognize this connection and are working together to offer tools and resources to support sustainable purchasing. In a panel discussion format, five of the largest GPOs will respond to questions on available resources, the role they play in environmentally preferable purchasing, the support available to health care facilities, and how suppliers can assist implementation. They will share the latest on a new effort to standardize environmental purchasing resources. For any organization working on sustainability, purchasing plays an integral part in achieving success.

  • CM14E7-Physician Engagement and the Role of the Physician

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Recorded on 06/05/2014 - Physicians are well-poised as leaders to advocate for sustainability as an opportunity for improved health and health care delivery, yet it continues to be rare to find physicians that are actively engaged in the sustainability movement.

    Session Description 

    Physicians are well-poised as leaders to advocate for sustainability as an opportunity for improved health and health care delivery, yet it continues to be rare to find physicians that are actively engaged in the sustainability movement. At CleanMed 2013 we began the discussion of physician engagement, identified opportunities for physician involvement, explored ways to overcome barriers to physician participation and discussed next steps for bringing physicians to the forefront of the health care sustainability movement. In this interactive session, four engaged physicians with vast experience combining clinical practice with sustainability work will bring the conversation to the next level and continue to build on the momentum that began in 2013.

    In this session we will build on last year's session and continue to explore opportunities for physician engagement and advocacy, explore and better understand barriers and discuss the necessary next steps in engaging physicians. Among other things, the focus will be on: green pharmacy and the role of the physician in reducing pharmaceutical waste; on life cycle assessment in guiding clinical decision making and the importance of physician's adding their voice to the debate of reusable vs. disposable devices along with an understanding of the science behind these decisions; and on better understanding physician attitudes/knowledge and barriers. A pre-conference survey may be employed to better understand these issues. In addition, the speakers will share an in-depth physician resource packet and lead an in-depth discussion of next steps (need for physician organization, educational materials including presentation template, need for CMEs, and opportunities for individual and collective advocacy).

    Recorded on 06/05/2014 - Implementing an Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) program has consistently been perceived as a daunting task. Often, organizations have many EPP opportunities; but, little resources to manage and implement the work. In this session, audience members will learn how to leverage resources, work cohesively with their Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), categorize their EPP opportunities, create a multi-year, sustainable pipeline of projects, and successfully manage their portfolio through a high level yet comprehensive metrics dashboard.

    Session Description 

    Implementing an Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) program has consistently been perceived as a daunting task. Often, organizations have many EPP opportunities; but, little resources to manage and implement the work. In this session, audience members will learn how to leverage resources, work cohesively with their Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), categorize their EPP opportunities, create a multi-year, sustainable pipeline of projects, and successfully manage their portfolio through a high level yet comprehensive metrics dashboard. Perhaps for the first time ever, Kaiser Permanente will team up with its GPO EPP team mates to discuss its evolutionary journey from a success story metric, to successfully managing a portfolio mix of highimpacting EPP projects. Uncovered during this session will be the birth of Kaiser Permanente's very first EPP metrics based dashboard in 2012, the bumps along the way, then arriving at the second generation of an EPP metrics based dashboard. Feeding into this executive level EPP dashboard are the portfolio mix of projects, categorized in four (4) distinct environmental attributes (Cleaner Energy, Safer Chemicals, Less Waste and Healthier Food), and by three (3) project phase types (Pre-sourcing, Sourcing, and Implementation). Audience members will leave the session armed with tools, the do's and don'ts, and a clear path towards EPP implementation in their own organization. Come join the session, and watch as the mysteries of EPP implementation will be revealed!
