Supply Chain Tip of the Week: How to assess if your facility is ready for a joint replacement program

With procedures shifting from inpatient to outpatient and joint replacement leading the way, there is a great opportunity to add these procedures to your surgery center.

Whether you are looking to launch or expand your ASC’s (Ambulatory Surgery Center’s) total joint replacement program, it’s imperative to first assess your facility’s status. When assessing your facility, review the following four factors:

  1. Determine OR (Operating Room) suitability
  2. Review storage capacity
  3. Review OR equipment
  4. Assess sterile processing department
