  87. 87. Marketing Update 2020 Intersurgical and Sustainability
  88. 88. Environmental Management System Intersurgical recognised that implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) was important and can improve the way we work and reduce the Company’s environmental impact.
  89. 89. We are accredited with ISO 14001 • Our Environmental Management System is certified to ISO14001:2015 • Audits, communications, labelling, compliance, staff training and awareness, risk management etc. • Until 2018 there were only 300,000 certificates issued in 171 countries* (11,201 UK) • ISO 14001 is voluntary • We expect our suppliers to have ISO 14001 • All leading to us reducing our environmental impact *Source,
  90. 90. It is possible to recycle all Intersurgical products and the majority of our packaging However, the disposal of Intersurgical products depends on the customer’s waste disposal policy and if the product has become infectious in use. Local waste policy guidelines must always be followed.
  91. 91. Being aware of plastics • Not all plastics are bad for the environment… • If these are disposed of correctly • Intersurgical products are made from a range of polymers which ensure the products are effective and safe in use • We review our materials to make sure they are as sustainable as possible.
  92. 92. PVC (polyvinyl Chloride) • When incinerated PVC may form highly toxic dioxins (these can cause cancer and harm immune and reproductive systems). • *This makes PVC the leading contributor of chlorine and accounts for an estimated 80% of dioxin air emissions. * Reference
  93. 93. Why do medical companies produce products in PVC? • From a manufacturing perspective it is a great material to work with • Clarity & transparency, durable, inexpensive, sterilization, chemical stability. • For the patient, the introduction of PVC medical devices in the 1960s revolutionised healthcare.
  94. 94. PVC is recyclable • If classed as non clinical waste there are some schemes that can recycle PVC
  95. 95. But there are alternatives to PVC Polypropylene shell TPE* seal * Theroplastic elastomer (rubbers) Kinder to the environment-kinder to the patient The technology is in the bonding
  96. 96. Total approx. amount of oxygen masks and anaesthetic masks used in the UK • 4.7m Oxygen & Aerosol masks • 3.1m Anaesthetic masks
  97. 97. EcoLite masks • Oxygen • Aerosol • EC02 • Venturi • Nebuliser • Tracheostomy
  98. 98. When incinerated non PVC products will give of Hydrocarbons • Water and CO2
  99. 99. Facts • Many of our products are produced in Lithuania where energy is produced from our own hydro electric power station • We pay a PRN (Packaging recovery note) to the Environmental Agency. (currently £35,000 p.a.) • Our own product waste material is recycled

  158. 158. Capacity Why a Value Based Approach ? Our Challenges?: • Rising costs • Ageing population • Variation in care • Increasing demand whilst trying to • Improve quality of care for our population
  159. 159. Prof Sir Muir Gray’s “transforming healthcare by delivering triple value”: PERSONALISED VALUE – base decisions on the best current evidence, careful assessment of an individual’s clinical condition and an individual’s value. TECHNICAL VALUE – improve the quality and safety of healthcare to increase the value derived from resources allocated to particular services. ALLOCATIVE VALUE – allocate resources to different groups equitably and in a way that maximises value for the whole population. Michael Porter’s definition for “value:” “The health outcomes achieved that matter to patients relative to the cost of achieving these outcomes.” VALUE = OUTCOMES / COSTS Personal Technical Allocative Value Definition Recap A sustainable solution?
  160. 160. Exercise
  161. 161. 178 Procurement tasked with product price reduction. Encouraged to look at innovation to improve process efficiency without being sure of efficacy. Great effort and resource …but a disconnect from outcomes that matter to the patient! Value Based Procurement – in support of WG Value Based Healthcare agenda – Patient focussed Efficiency and Efficacy need to be at the heart of what we do to deliver sustainable procurement solutions. Value Based Procurement 3Ps
  162. 162. A Value Based approach LNW Wales.
  163. 163. OGEP – On the Ground Community Educators Project. Overview: • 2 dedicated Lymphoedema educators working directly with community nurses • Upskilling of community nurses To improve the service provision Lymphoedema Network Wales (LNW) , informed by patient need, has initiated value based initiatives on a project basis in different Health Boards across Wales: Benefits: • Decreased GP contact • Decreased cellulitis episodes • Reduced hospital admissions • Decreased dressing costs • Measured improvement in patient QoL.
  164. 164. Super Micro Surgery – Lymphatic Venous Anastomosis (LVA) Overview: • Innovative minimally invasive micro surgery • Offered to patient cohort to treat Lymphoedema / slow progression Benefits: • Episodes of cellulitis decreased from almost 500 to 20 • Hospital admissions reduced from 50 to 2 in targeted pop • Almost 600 days off work reduced to less than 60 • 50% less patients on prophylactic antibiotics
  165. 165. Procuring versus prescribing of compression garments Overview: • Compression garments are the mainstay of treatment • Collaboration with SMTL, Procurement Services and Medicines Management • National procurement contract and formulary moving away from prescribing • Local stock kept closer to nurses and patients Benefits: • 65% or patients receive their garments on the day (rather than up to 3 weeks later) • Right garments , right time, right place – reduced harm • Reduced demand on GPs (no GP appointment required for prescription) • Reduced errors due to streamlined process (previously 35% incorrect) • Reduced travel for patients to collect prescriptions • Significantly reduced cost of garments vs Drug Tariff
