Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this installment, I check back in with Dan Vukelich, president of the Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR), regarding the role reprocessing can play in reducing healthcare's carbon footprint, which is currently responsible for almost 4.6% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
The last time I spoke to Dan, we talked about
the untapped potential for reprocessing in healthcare, how COVID-19 has highlighted those benefits, and what factors stand in the way of increased reprocessing.
We hope you enjoy the conversation. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next:
