Sustainability & Green Initiatives

HealthTrust supports the sustainability initiatives of our members by effectively incorporating the principles of Environmentally Preferred Purchasing (EPP) into the contracting process. In 2019 we will launch a third-party solution, providing members access to product-level data from responsible suppliers who offer products free of harmful chemicals and with packaging solutions that contribute to a facility’s waste reduction goals.

*HealthTrust’s definition of “new technology” is classified as a product that, as compared to existing products:

  • Offers significant technological advancements,
  • Significantly improves clinical outcomes or patient care (i.e., documented reduction in procedure times, outcomes, lengths of stay, readmissions, infection rates), or
  • Significantly streamlines work processes and/or the economics of facility operations (i.e., increase or decrease expenses in supply chain or resource utilization).

Demonstration of this via independent, peer-reviewed publication(s) is beneficial but not required.*
