THE INITIATIVE

Ensure quality and cost savings with the Nellcor™ Technology Sustainability Initiative

As part of cost reduction strategy, some hospitals have started using reprocessed sensors from third party manufacturers.

Medtronic has proprietary processes and procedures in place to ensure sensors are remanufactured to meet the same quality specifications as new Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensors with OxiMax™ technology.

With one of our sustainability programs, you can have the high quality sensors needed to ensure quality patient care and achieve cost savings for both new and remanufactured sensors. In fact, we can show you how to take maximum advantage of this program so that your hospital will achieve cost savings without sacrificing quality or performance.

Meet Our Cost Saving Programs

REMANUFACTURE

With the remanufacturing program, your hospital receives one credit for each qualifying sensor returned. One credit = the right to buy one remanufacturable sensor.

REBATE

With the rebate program, you will continue to purchase new sensors, but a quarterly rebate is paid for each incremental sensor purchased above baseline volume.

RECYCLE

In the recycling program, you have the option to have Medtronic "buy back" each qualified sensor.

LEARN

There are many ways the Nellcor™ Technology Sustainability Initiative can benefit your hospital

The Nellcor™ Technology Sustainability Initiative benefits your hospital in multiple ways. When you take advantage of our programs, you'll save money. Because our remanufactured sensors are manufactured to the same high quality specifications as new sensors, you'll ensure excellent patient care. And when you recycle sensors, you reduce your hospital's environmental footprint and decrease waste.

PRACTICE

How you can participate and what is required from your staff

Participation is easy and requires only minimal effort on the part of your hospital.

  • We'll provide the containers needed.
  • You choose the internal 'champions' needed to gain support for the initiative.
  • Clinicians simply place the used Nellcor™ sensors in a designated container and not the trash.
  • When it is full it is returned to Medtronic using FedEx services at no cost to your hospital and a replacement container is then automatically sent back to your hospital.
  • *Program only available in the U.S.
