MindClick for Providers

Healthy hospitals through purchasing. Product intelligence to help you buy—better.

Data reduces risks and provides a roadmap for progress.

1

Minimize exposure to chemicals of concern

DID YOU KNOW? Nearly half (45%) of the 253 products commonly used in a hospital pediatric patient room contain one or more chemicals of high concern (CoHC) to human health and the environment.

Chemicals of high concern have been directly linked to carcinogens, reproductive toxicants, endocrine disruptors, allergens, and a host of other chronic diseases, and are particularly harmful to high-risk patient populations.

MindClick’s Index helps you find cost competitive, commercially viable products free of chemicals of high concern.

Know what’s in your products and quickly find better options.

2

Protect clinician and staff health.

DID YOU KNOW? Surgeons at a hospital suffered from a severe skin reaction caused by the cuffs on their gowns.

Environmental health data from MindClick is making it possible to find cost competitive, commercially viable gowns free of materials associated with contact dermatitis.

3

Improve efficiency, reduce waste and save money.

DID YOU KNOW? Waste is a well-known challenge for hospitals. In 2012, the National Academy of Medicine estimated annual waste in the U.S. healthcare system amounted to $765 billion a year.

MindClick’s EH Index™ helps you find suppliers developing innovative solutions to solve the waste problem.

Fairview Health worked closely with 3M to identify efficiency opportunities and discovered medical staff only used 10-30% of a standard size tape roll. The reason made sense – reusing tape rolls risked cross contamination. 3M took action and found a solution.

Empower your value analysis committees.

EH product intelligence for value analysis committees.

In 2018, Rochester Regional awarded a $380k+ contract to a supplier as a direct result of better environmental health performance and cost savings.

Initially, the supplier was not the preferred choice. But including EH performance as part of their value analysis decision criteria changed everything.

Enhance the quality of your facilities.

5

Design, build and furnish healthier, more efficient facilities.

DID YOU KNOW? Selecting healthier building products and materials contributes to operating efficiency, leading to cost savings, higher staff engagement, lower turnover rates, positive public recognition, and more patient visits.
