  • Reducing Cost and Environmental Impact in Health Care through a Total Cost of Ownership Tool

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 09/07/2017

    Join us as we share the outcomes from two health care organizations that have used the Total Cost of Ownership Tool developed by Practice Greenhealth and Truecost. Both organizations will discuss where and how the tool was applied, the user requirements, the targeted products, the outcomes showing the comparison of costs and savings identified.

    Session Description

    With tremendous cost pressures within the U.S. health care system, health care providers are looking at different ways to save money. For many medical devices there are submerged costs that are not always reflected in the purchase price and may not be considered during purchasing decisions. To reduce these costs and associated impacts, the total cost of ownership of a product or service should be included during purchasing decisions to assess the full cost to an organization.

    To address this need, a total cost of ownership tool has been developed to provide purchasers with a standardized and systematic way to consider the environmental costs of products that are procured. These environmental costs are not always readily apparent and may include things like the cost of energy, water or waste disposal. Partnering with Trucost, Practice Greenhealth worked collaboratively with hospitals and health systems, suppliers, and GPOs to build, test, and now deploy a tool for health care.

    This session will share the outcomes from two health care organizations that have used the tool. They will highlight where and how the tool was applied, the user requirements, the targeted products, the outcomes showing the comparison of costs and savings identified. This session will demonstrate the benefit of looking at a total cost of ownership to identify valuable savings opportunities combined with a “win-win” to reduce environmental and human health impacts that are also a priority to shrink health care’s environmental footprint.

    Learning Objectives

    • State the business case for including a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) evaluation in the purchasing process for health care products. 
    • Observe how the TCO tool provides an easy and standardized method to calculate total costs to healthcare to inform purchasing decisions. 
    • List the submerged cost areas that impact the total cost to your organization. 
    • Calculate the savings and outcomes from two case studies that have used the TCO tool.
