Part 3: State of the Union for Sterile Processing and Technology

Creating Sterile Processing Department schedules that make the most of a staff’s time requires a complete understanding and visibility of the demands of a particular healthcare facility. And to gain that big picture, a department needs data and lots of it. Still, more than that, a Sterile Processing Department needs a platform solution that provides reporting in an innovative and actionable way.

What’s the next generation of technology available to make SPD scheduling demands less challenging?

Tyler Kern, the host of ConCensis, came together with Seamus Johnson, Sr. Director of Application Development for Censis, Jeff Long, Network Director of Sterile Processing at St. Luke’s University Health Network, and Cody Troutt, Director of Central Sterile at Williamson Medical for a third, and final discussion on Censis’ new CensisAI2 Productivity platform.

This third conversation with Kern, Johnson, Long, and Troutt includes the following:

  • The importance of optimized SPD staff utilization
  • Creating tray efficiencies through data analysis
  • Advice for hospitals considering or evaluating the CensisAI2 tool

“You have to be able to demonstrate to them (the C-Suite) a return on investment,” Troutt said. “It doesn’t matter if you work for a for-profit or not-for-profit hospital. Your not-for-profit hospitals are not for a loss either.”

Seamus Johnson is an experienced Senior Software Engineer with a demonstrated history of working in the hospital & healthcare industry. Johnson’s proficiency in Software Architecture, Agile Methodologies, C#, Angular, and TypeScript makes him a valued asset to the Censis team, where he’s spent most of his career.

Jeff Long is an experienced Department Director with a demonstrated history of working in the hospital & healthcare industry. Long is skilled in Medical Devices, Infection Control, Orthopedics, Capital Equipment, and Healthcare. Strong business development professional with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) focused on Organizational Management and Leadership Development from Ashford University.

Cody Troutt is an experienced Customer Service Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the hospital & healthcare industry. Troutt’s a strong support professional skilled in Coaching, Medical Devices, Sales, Team Building, and HR Policies.
