Improve efficiency and reduce waste.
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.
For example, when the CDC instructed providers that tape rolls must be dedicated to a single patient, or disposed of after use to prevent cross contamination, hospitals began discarding 70 – 90% of a roll.
To minimize tape waste, 3M™ designed Single Patient Use Rolls of their most popular tapes, and decreased the length of the rolls from 10 yards to 1.5-2 yards.

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.
