  • CM13C2 - The Role Of The GPO In Building a Sustainable Food System Supply Chain

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    This presentation will focus on the story of a Canadian GPO that turned this barrier into an opportunity to generate more than $1 million for local farmers in Ontario.

    For many healthcare organizations, group purchasing organizations (GPOs) are seen as a barrier to the procurement of local and sustainable food. This presentation will focus on the story of a Canadian GPO that turned this barrier into an opportunity to generate more than $1 million for local farmers in Ontario. Although there were challenges encountered along the way, the achievements made the hard work worthwhile, and the lessons learned in the process are transferable and relevant to any healthcare food service setting. The lessons that will be explored include: driving up demand through education, building connection back into institutional food systems, RFPs and contracts that pave the way for local food, and celebrating easy wins and "low hanging fruit."

  • HHI Series - Lessons from a Leader: Transportation Planning for 21st Century Health Care Seattle Children’s “Conscious Commute”

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/05/2014

    Recorded on 11/06/14 - Transportation is often overlooked when identifying pollution sources and opportunities for improved environmental performance in health care, yet cars contribute to smog, poor visibility and poor air quality, especially in congested areas. While one can’t smell carbon monoxide, it is emitted from cars and impact people through reducing the amount of oxygen that is transferred to muscles and to the organs. Those at greatest risk are those with heart or respiratory disease.

    Session Description

    Transportation is often overlooked when identifying pollution sources and opportunities for improved environmental performance in health care, yet cars contribute to smog, poor visibility and poor air quality, especially in congested areas. While one can’t smell carbon monoxide, it is emitted from cars and impact people through reducing the amount of oxygen that is transferred to muscles and to the organs. Those at greatest risk are those with heart or respiratory disease. According to the EPA, in 2008, 27% of greenhouse gases came from transportation sources. Greenhouse gases are forecasted to increase dramatically for this sector. Nestled by mountains, lakes and Puget Sound, Seattle’s landscape intensifies a serious traffic congestion problem. The City of Seattle created an ordinance that requires large employers to reduce their drive-alone rate as one measure to alleviate the impact of transportation on the roads and the environment. Seattle Children’s goal was to expand its campus in North East Seattle but reduce the rate of single occupancy vehicle use and avoid the need to construct 500 new parking stalls at an estimated cost of $20,000,000. The precious space that would be needed for the additional 500 parking places could be put to better use for clinical space. This, in combination with Seattle Children’s commitment to the health of its workers and community, led to the development of a comprehensive transportation plan, developed in tandem with the facility’s strategic plan, looking ahead twenty years, starting in 2013.

    Seattle Children’s goal is to reduce single vehicle car use from its current rate of 40% to the rate of 30% by 2028 or the completion of its master plan. The transportation plan has already received notice and has garnered The Governor’s Commute Smart Award, EPA’s Commuter Choice Leadership Award, Commuter Challenge’s Diamond Award; Zip car’s 2010 Wheel of Change Award and is recognized as a model in healthy commuting strategies, safety and prevention. Seattle Children’s has also won Practice Greenhealth’s Partner for Change Award.

    Learning Objectives

    • Understand why every hospital should have a transportation plan.
    • How a transportation plan can contribute to a healthier environment.
    • Understand how Seattle Children’s sets transportation goals and measures progress with their transportation plan.
