    Session Description

    As sustainability begins to become standard practice in health care, it will require a standard system of measuring progress. Practice Greenhealth has spent the past ten years collecting data on sustainability performance in the health care sector. Each year, the organization analyzes this data and identifies a set of metrics that are indicators of progress on the sustainability front. The sustainability landscape continues to evolve, as do the set of metrics by which it can be measured. This session will highlight key findings from the 2013 Sustainability Benchmark Report as well as outline key metrics being used to evaluate sustainability performance. Come participate in a dynamic discussion about how to select the right data points to most accurately reflect sustainability performance.

  • CM14E4-First Responder: Health Care Leadership for a Sustainable World

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Recorded on 06/05/2014 - Climate change is an issue that directly links environmental and human health and the health care industry has a unique responsibility to lead in this important global issue. The presentation will outline a set of external and internal engagements designed to address climate change risks.

    Session Description 

    Climate change is an issue that directly links environmental and human health and the health care industry has a unique responsibility to lead in this important global issue. The presentation will outline a set of external and internal engagements designed to address climate change risks. At the public level, there is a firm commitment to reducing energy intensity through the Better Buildings Challenge. The organization is engaged in a regional policy initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Sustainable Cleveland 2019 initiative. Mitigation is spearheaded by a comprehensive energy measurement and reduction strategy to reduce lighting, HVAC, office equipment, cooking equipment and clinical equipment within operations. We have employed innovative approaches to reducing our transportation carbon footprint and are piloting an innovative program in the United States to recycle anesthesia gas, a potent greenhouse gas currently being vented by the health care industry. Climate change presents a range of health human risks and this talk will also address potential impacts of climate change on human health. As an organization, we are looking at our capacity to be a first responder to the pressing issue and the broad set of challenges an evolving climate brings to health care.

  • 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).

  • CM14F1-Developing and Managing a Sustainable Portfolio Mix of EPP Projects

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 06/05/2014

    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!
