Practice Greenhealth Announces Development of Total Cost of Ownership Tool for Health Care Products and Services

Posted: February 5, 2014
Source: Practice Greenhealth.Org

First-of-its-kind effort will evaluate total costs across lifecycle of health care products

(Reston, Virginia) – As part of Practice Greenhealth’s Greening the Supply Chain® Initiative, Practice Greenhealth is pleased to announce the development of a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Framework to be used by health care providers to evaluate the total cost across the lifecycle of a medical device or product from purchase and use, to end-of-life. Practice Greenhealth is bringing together hospitals, group purchasing organizations (GPOs), and businesses to develop this guidance, which will be offered at no cost to hospitals nationwide.

With tremendous pressures to reduce costs within the U.S. health care system, health care providers must look at ways to lower their purchasing costs. When it comes to purchasing medical devices, products and services, there are submerged costs, such as storage, maintenance, and disposal costs, that are not considered during procurement decisions. Therefore, they may be paying more in the long term for a product with a lower sales cost.

These costs are a part of the total cost of ownership of a product or service. Purchasing decisions should include these costs to assess the full costs to an organization. However, there is not currently a methodology in place to assist hospitals in determining their total cost of ownership of health care products and services. Providing a tool that brings these submerged costs to the surface during the procurement process could have a significant impact on reducing the total cost of delivering quality health care. Creating that tool requires a standardized method to measure or calculate these submerged environmental costs that is universally recognized. Elements of cost that address a reduction in environmental and human health impacts are also a priority to reduce health care’s environmental footprint.

SAN FRANCISCO – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized Sacramento’s La Valentina building complex as the Built Projects winner of the 2013 National Award for Smart Growth Achievement.

The National Award for Smart Growth Achievement recognizes communities that use innovative policies and practices to develop in ways that protect the environment, provide housing and transportation choices, and strengthen their economies. Seven projects will be honored at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on February 5.

“The winning projects show us that we can develop, grow local economies, and protect public health and the environment all at the same time,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “These projects also act as models for others, so they too can chart their own path toward healthier, more sustainable communities.”

Energy Efficiency Standard for ‘Wall Warts’ (External Power Supplies)

Posted: February 4, 2014
Source: Energy Manager Today.com by Linda Hardesty

Following close on the heels of last week’s finalized energy efficiency standards for metal halide lamp fixtures, the US Energy Department yesterday announced the final rule for new efficiency standards for external power supplies.

The agency says external power supplies, commonly referred to as “wall warts,” are used in hundreds of types of electronics and consumer products, including cell phones, tablets, laptops, video game consoles and power tools, to convert power from a wall outlet into lower voltages. More than 300 million external power supplies are shipped in the United States each year and the average American home has five to ten external power supplies. These numbers are expected to continue growing as consumers and businesses purchase new types of personal electronics.

Dealing with drug waste in the Corridor [The Gazette, Cedar Rapids, Iowa]

Feb. 02 IOWA CITY
When a patient emerges from anesthesia after surgery, his nurse wants to make sure he doesn’t feel pain.

She gets a 1 milliliter syringe of hydromorphone, a generic form of Dilaudid, from a secure drug cabinet. She plans to give her patient .2 milliliter. Even patients with open hysterectomies some of the most painful procedures need just .4 milliliter.

She squirts the rest of the drug down the drain, where it can’t be abused by addicts but can pollute drinking water.

UI nurses disposed of an average 70 percent of each of 47,000 hydromorphone 1 milliliter syringes with waste in fiscal 2013.

Portions of nearly 250,000 doses of prescription medication were flushed down the drain or returned to the UI Hospitals and Clinics pharmacy to be wasted in the past two years, despite U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines against flushing drugs.

Metal Halide Lamps: DOE Updates Efficiency Standards

Posted: January 31, 2014
Source: Energy Manager Today.com

The US Department of Energy has finalized new energy efficiency standards for metal halide lamp fixtures.

Metal halide lamp fixtures include the ballast, which starts and regulates the electrical current for these lighting systems. They are commonly used for parking lots and streets, flood lighting, athletic facilities, big-box stores and warehouses. On average, one metal halide lamp fixture consumes about 2,210 kilowatt hours of energy per year.

The new efficiency standards update the 2007 standards for metal halide lamp fixtures. These standards incorporate feedback from industry, consumer and environmental advocacy groups and other stakeholders and will go into effect three years after publication in the Federal Register.

In November, the DOE proposed new and amended energy conservation standards for certain commercial and industrial electric motors, including a number of different groups of electric motors that DOE has not previously regulated.

A new National Resources Defense Council report released this week alleges that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been allowing the use of 30 penicillin and tetracycline antibiotic feed additives that could be exposing humans to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. FDA reviewed 30 antibiotic feed additives (approved for non-therapeutic use, which means preventing disease or promoting growth) between 2001 and 2010 that most likely would not be approved as new additives if submitted for use today, according to NRDC.

Living Well on a Finite Planet

Economist Tim Jackson, a professor of sustainable development at the U.K.’s University of Surrey is glum. “Prosperity isn’t just about having stuff,” he said. “Prosperity is the art of living well on a finite planet.”

But a systems researcher named Brad Werner may be more interested in anarchy to tackle sustainability issues.

According to an article featured on Common Dreams: “If global carbon emissions continue to rise at their current rate, humanity will eventually be left with no other option than a costly, world-war-like mobilization.”

“Climate change, pollution, damaged ecosystems, record species extinctions and unsustainable resource use are all clear symptoms of a dysfunctional economic system,” Jackson, author of “Prosperity Without Growth,” published by the World Future Society,  told the Inter Press Service (IPS).
