Understanding Affordable Care Act

web_timeline

The question is,

“Do you understand the Affordable Care Act?”

“Does anyone understand this health care act?”

This law is one of the least understood legislation in Government history. Government officials do not understand this law.

The Affordable Care Act or Obama Care was signed into law before anyone even reads this law in full. While Obama Care was a promise of a better health care system, it has not proved true.

This law has been complicated and confusing to all who try to understand what it says. You probably found this law confusing and frustrating, found costs rising, and in the end decided not to buy into a plan at all and go without health care coverage risking a penalty of at least $600.00

Every part of the medical community is affected by the Affordable Care Act in negative ways. Thousands of custom procedure trays used every day see rising costs.

One thing is for certain, and that is this law significantly and negatively impacts all medical supplies, like custom procedure trays.

There is an incredible mound of paperwork, making up this law. This hard to understand law affects everything and everyone medical, including custom procedure trays.

Two Bright spots to the ACA

  1. Preexisting conditions do not impact your coverage or ability to gain health coverage.
  2. You can keep your doctor

The ACA signed into law so that you could get low-cost health care coverage. You may never find a plan that fits your needs or budget, so you do not buy anything.

The biggest drawback to this plan is if you do not purchase a plan you pay a penalty of up to at least $600.00. If you cannot afford this health care coverage, you certainly cannot afford the penalty.

Originally, each state had to complete the Affordable Care Act process. Some states were confused, and many lacked the understanding of the law forcing the government to step in and complete their process.

The Affordable Care Act is not uniform across all states. While this scheme helps some Medicaid recipients in some states, it does not help Medicaid recipients in other states.

For businesses everywhere who offer health care plans it meant,

  • Lots of new rules
  • Possible benefits?
  • Lot of reporting requirements
  • Higher cost to employers and employees
  • Higher drug costs
  • Cutting the cost of custom procedure trays

Lots of Facts and Myths

  • Doctors are confused
  • Patients are confused and anxious
  • Doctors must deliver care differently
  • Doctors receive reimbursement differently
  • Rises in the cost of medicine
  • Rising cost of custom procedure trays
  • Businesses are worse off
  • Develop innovations such as customizing and sterilization of custom procedure trays on site

Will Things be Worse or Better in 2017?

You can only hope that an Obama Care replacement as promised by the new 2017 Government happens.

The Trump promise is,

  • Make health care simple and easy to understand
  • Affordable for everyone
  • Easy to understand
  • Acceptance of pre-existing conditions
  • Cheaper medicines
  • You can keep your doctor

Even Custom Procedure Trays are Affected

The medical community strives to improve patient care, lower facility costs, and increase the quality of care. For instance, developing on-site custom procedure trays and cut the cost from a middleman.

These new rules affect everyone in the health care field, from doctors to hospitals, to clinics, dentists, eye care, medicine, medical equipment such as custom procedure trays, essential to quality patient care.

President Elect Trump promises to make health care simpler, easier to read, and genuinely affordable for everyone, lowering costs for medical supplies like custom procedure trays, and medicine, by replacing this hard to understand ACA.

Different Ways of Packaging Custom Trays?

surgicalpack

Custom surgical trays are highly famed for their convenience. Their ability to bundle multiple functionality onto one tray not only makes them theater friendly but also makes the easier to transport and dispose. Since custom tray designers will always have packing and racking in mind, they will put them in the best packing options possible.

that clinic management has to instill when storing and preparing traditional trays.

This extends over to disposal. The custom tray can go back to the packaging it came in or you can slip them into clinical bags ready for disposal. If you are lucky, choose something that allows you to repackage without posing a biohazard. This will help you tap deeper into the benefits of custom trays.

Packaging a custom tray stock might sound like a complication to anyone who was used to traditional surgical supplies and trays. However, the fact that the manufacturer has adapted everything to suite your use case means that the trays will store away almost naturally.

This is why custom trays more of a convenience. They are a perfect way to increase efficiency in the operation room by limiting the number of procedures needed to get the right equipment from the store, use it and dispose it off safely.

Three Levels for Storing Custom Trays

surgicalpack

It is always important to ensure that the custom procedure trays are stored in the right conditions so that they can always be available when required for use. As a general rule, it will involve maintaining the sterility of the products, proper arrangement of the products and keeping track of the product.

Custom procedure trays are mostly stored at the point of use, may it be a clinic or operating theater. However, regardless of the location, there should be a designated storage area which is always monitored to ensure that all custom procedure trays are maintained properly. There are three levels for storing this equipment.

e technical person that is mandated to regulate such equipment. The manufacturer is also required to ensure that the recommended safety and quality assurance tests are carried out for all the custom procedure trays. They should also clearly state the correct use of each tool. The medical practitioners should also ensure that the product is sterile by checking that;

  • the packaging is intact
  • the product is within the expiry date
  • the product has a sterilization indicator that confirms that it has undergone the right sterilization process.

As a rule of thumbs, custom procedure trays that have stayed for long without being used should be considered a product of overstocking and a proper assessment undertaken on its future. Other ways in which the product quality may be maintained include;

  • Designing the storage area in such a way that the packs are not damaged and still allow for flexible rotation of stock
  • Shelving should allow for easy access when cleaning. It should also be airy.
  • The products being stored should be at least above the floor level away from water and direct sunlight.

Lack of proper management of this areas may have an adverse effect on the integrity of the custom procedure trays and may render them unsuitable for use.

    rol leaving patients less vulnerable to Healthcare Associated Infections.

  • By increasing the patients’ throughput and reducing response time, surgical packs improve the quality of service.
  • Since all the components are in one pack, they simplify batch traceability.
  • Due to the broad uptake of surgical packs, many procedures have been standardized across several institutions that use them, therefore, driving up quality.
  • Guidelines can be easily formulated by healthcare providers to properly assess themselves against set standards that may be deemed too rigid.
  • 4. Environmental

    The amount of waste generated by units can be reduced by up to 50%.

    5. Improves Efficiency

    The increased efficiency means that more procedures can be done in one day since the time for preparation is considerable. The waiting time for patients can be reduced, and their procedures carried out earlier.

    ine regardless of who delivers them and who packs them, you also have to consider the general service you receive. When there are questions you need answered, changes in the order and packing preferences, or even just contact that you need to have in order to retain a strong relationship with your supplier, there are more than enough reasons why any business relationship needs to have strong communication. There are more than enough reasons to ensure you have strong communication and a great reputation with your suppliers, but at the end of the day you want to make sure you are simply receiving a quality product with the service that actually backs it up as well with your custom trays.

    Certifications and Partners

    Not only do you need to be aware of the product in general, but when it comes to custom trays you also have to understand you are getting a product certified by the professionals. There are more than enough players in the medical community, but there are absolutely more than enough ways to get checked out as well. When it comes to having top quality custom trays in the medical and surgical community as well, there are reasons you want to be known and one of those reasons is by the partnerships you have and the endorsements you have earned for your product.

    Qualified experts in cost management for Operating Rooms agree that the most cost effective innovation within the medical arena that has also been most productive in increasing quality of treatments plus eliminating waste is the implementation of surgical custom trays. Waste reduction is achieved by reducing overstocking, a custom trays improvement that also saves in personnel duties. The consequent reduction of medical hazard waste improves minimalizing of our carbon footprint while simultaneously increasing the treatment success for individual procedures and the more complicated surgical procedures.

    cedure that is undertaken.

    • Single Use Products

    Sterile materials which are required for single use are packed in efficiency boosting single use individual custom trays. Compact custom trays save time and prevent unnecessary waste in performing those specific single use Operating Room procedures, and the custom trays are also quickly available for any repetitive procedures performed.

    Summary of Custom Tray Cost Reduction

    Your facility’s carbon footprint reduction and securing sustainable environmental practices without undermining any and all safety factors represents both a local and global importance. Custom surgical tray implementation always will drastically reduce the amount of packaging material and waste issues when compared to the use of individually packed and arranged instruments for your procedures. Packaging material weight due to the Operating Room’s implementaton of custom trays alone is reduced by 58%, usually resulting in one less waste bag in the Operating Room’s larger medical procedures. That reduction of one waste bag results in a reduction of the hospital’s global carbon footprint as well as your facility’s operating costs.

    The combined and assessed impact of custom trays’ utilization in reducing excess procurement stocking while effectively diminishing the carbon impact of medical waste can only be estimated, but the estimation suggests that the green earth improvement caused by this one professional innovation of custom trays in the Operating Room is of monumental global importance.
