O.R. efficiency

Innovative thinking and flexible approach behind 18% increase in procedures

By: Mölnlycke Health Care, September 5 2013Posted in: O.R. efficiency

With the help of ProcedurePak® the Herz-Jesu Hospital in Münster has increased efficiency across the entire hospital, from purchase through waste disposal. The hospital was able to increase the number of procedures performed by 18 percent. Innovative thinking combined with a flexible approach has enabled the hospital to reduce personnel and overhead costs by 51,000 EUR per year.

  Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Horstmann, Head Surgeon   


“With ProcedurePak trays, the time between procedures has been reduced, increasing our efficiency in the O.R.”

“Now we need less storage space, we can react faster and our waste disposal costs have been reduced.”

Manuela Zwiener, Purchaser

 Leopold Lauenstein, Managing Director


“The relationship with Mölnlycke Health Care is not a typical supplier-to-buyer relationship; it is more of a strategic partnership, in which Mölnlycke Health Care contributes many valuable ideas, enabling our hospital to become more efficient and perform better from a commercial perspective.”

Leopold Lauenstein, Managing Director

 

Reducing stress and streamlining the ordering process

Another improvement is a less stressful atmosphere in the operating theatre, improving working conditions for staff. It is also easier for the purchasing department to order all items needed for a procedure. The ordering process for some procedures is streamlined even more because a combined pack is used. Efficiency has been increased across the whole hospital, from purchasing through waste disposal.
