PVC Alternatives for Eco-Friendly Furnishings

By CME Corp Staff on Apr 22, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) has become a conventional material in the healthcare industry.  From flexible tubing to device components, PVC has found its way into various applications. While some view the material as beneficial to the industry, it does not come without controversy. One major pain point rests with the fact there is no known safe way to produce or dispose of PVC products. Even worse, when PVC is broken down, hydrogen chloride gas and dioxin are released, both of which are hazardous chemicals.

Being aware of non-PVC options should be a priority for planners and purchasers as they design and gather equipment and supplies for projects. Building a sustainable and eco-friendly institution starts with setting a solid foundation, and companies are now offering PVC-free versions of popular products, including upholstery and furnishing elements.

Enriching the Point of Care Experience through Meaningful Technology — Meet IQvitals® Zone™

By CME Corp Staff on Jun 26, 2017 11:00:00 AM

As independent, outpatient medical practices have become part of integrated health systems, networks have struggled to establish standardized processes. This is a problem. Simply put, disconnected processes and devices at the point of care can have a big impact on costs and outcomes.

Manual vitals acquisition alone produces wasted time that can cost up to $1,600 per year per medical assistant. For health systems with hundreds of medical assistants, those costs add up—and the impact on clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction can be even greater.

Studies have also shown that manual data transcription produces a 6.5 percent rate of error on average. Assuming a caregiver sees 20 patients a day, that’s eight errors just capturing vitals.
