Accountable for Change: Collaborating Between Supply Chain & SPD

In many healthcare facilities, Sterile Processing departments fall under the reporting structure of perioperative services. The same cannot be said at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The Central Processing department at this facility broke the mold when it joined forces with Supply Chain and created a new reporting structure within their surgical services. On this week’s Beyond Clean special release, we’re sharing an exclusive interview from the 2019 HPN SPD Department of the Year award winner, CHOP’s Robert Silverstein, Senior Director, Central Processing and High-Level Disinfection/Sterilization, from our “Conference of Champions” event earlier this year.    Join us for this interview as we hear from Robert about the benefits his department has experienced since making this structural change to report to & through Supply Chain. From the optimization of preference cards and supply chain management to the significant improvement to OR “On Time” starts, this reporting structure is certainly proven to be effective.  Gather around with your favorite inventory specialist and tune in for this collaborative discussion!

Each “Conference of Champions” special release episode is individually approved for 1 CE, so once you finish this interview, you can download your CE certificate immediately by passing the short quiz linked below each week.
