Reprocessing means collecting used medical devices, shipping them to a reprocessor, and buying them back at about 50% of the price, to reduce supply costs without adding risk.
The first step is that devices are collected from the hospital. After devices are shipped to the Innovative Health facility, they are sorted and identified to ensure they are cleared for reprocessing. Each device is labeled with a unique serial number to ensure traceability.
The devices then go through a proprietary cleaning process. Devices are then tested using validated and approved testing equipment to ensure functionality. Devices are sterilized and quarantined until all sterilization tests are successfully completed.
Only then are devices available for ordering. Upon ordering, devices are shipped to the healthcare facility in convenient and protective packaging.
