An innovative endoscopy decontamination and sterilisation service
An innovative new Endoscopy option from IHSS looking to drive down the cost of endoscope reprocessing, and to improve the quality of patient care. The managed equipment service uses a simple pay per use model, where customers are charged an agreed fee each time they require an endoscope to be sterilised, combined with the sourcing and financing of each endoscope as part of a contracted arrangement with each customer.
This has revolutionized the way in which decontamination managers and clinicians approach the growing challenges of endoscope reprocessing. Using this PPU model, IHSS has changed the way in which critical equipment is funded.
- Moving the cost from capital to
- Eliminates the risks and direct costs
associated with instrument acquisition,
operation and maintenance.
- Frees up space while also creating an environment within which the speed and efficiency of patient service, capacity for future growth and mandatory compliance can all be significantly improved.
Our new Pay Per Use service offers hospital managers and clinicians an innovative, flexible and cost effective way to meet these demands.
This bespoke service also allows clinicians to take advantage of the latest technology, leading to better patient outcomes. Current NHS funding procedures can make it difficult to upgrade endoscopes until they reach the end of their working life; typically, this is more than five years, during which time there can be radical advances in technology. The use of specialised endoscopes, which require higher standards of sterilisation, can also be restricted by the fact that
SSDs do not always have the appropriate tools or expertise to carry out this work out effectively.
The IHSS service can be structured to allow instruments to be upgraded far more frequently, giving clinicians access to modern instruments, with the reassurance that they are being reprocessed to the highest standards. To this end, IHSS has a network of decontamination and sterile services centres, which use the latest and fully validated systems that are operated by specialised and highly experienced teams.
Soaring demand and restrictive budgets mean sterile services departments are finding themselves increasingly overstretched, which can sometimes have an impact on patient care.
IHSS can support in providing a better alternative to current practices. The state-of-the-art endoscopy equipment we provide, is specified to the highest technical levels. Our facility and processes meet Best Practice guidelines, ISO 13485. As we supply endoscopy equipment, we fully manage the inventory on your behalf.
