UHC Releases Reprocessing Guide for Value Analysis Program
Date:12/6/2011

CHICAGO, Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- UHC has created a comprehensive Reprocessing Guide for members that participate in its Value Analysis Program. The guide is a practical manual for planning, implementing, and managing all phases of a reprocessing program for single-use medical devices and equipment.

UHC's Value Analysis Program helps academic medical centers manage and implement clinical and operational improvement and cost reduction activities. Program participants that apply value analysis best practices achieve an average return on investment of 10:1 or higher.

The new guide, third in a series of Value Analysis Program handbooks, incorporates technical information, tips, and best practices for reprocessing, which can result in improved patient care, financial sustainability, and environmental sustainability. The guide incorporates input from leaders in reprocessing both within and outside UHC.

"In this challenging climate of health care reform, it's critical to find opportunities for cost reduction and increased efficiencies, while maintaining the highest standards of patient care," said Jake Groenewold, UHC senior vice president, Supply Chain. "Reprocessing can be an important element in this strategy, and it also supports members' green initiatives."

UHC's Value Analysis Program also offers the Value Analysis Handbook, the Technology Assessment Guide, 2 meetings and 10 Web conferences each year, and an active networking group. UHC will soon launch a reprocessing special interest group for program participants.
