Savings Direct is a program that enables healthcare organizations to manage their reprocessing programs internally, and is designed to support their efforts to reduce supply costs and environmental impact. Healthcare organizations that participate in Savings Direct drive collection and shipment of single-use devices (SUDs) to potentially maximize their savings.
- Buy-back credits for collected devices
- Extended order availability period of 30 days
- Stryker will round up to a minimum of one case per collected device
- All program shipping supplies are provided
Savings direct customers receive 50¢ for every operating room (OR) device and 15¢ for every non-invasive device (DVT compression sleeves, tourniquet cuffs and pulse oximeter sensors) received by Stryker. These credits can be used to purchase any reprocessed devices by Stryker.
To get started, one of Stryker’s field-based representatives will guide staff members through the implementation of Stryker’s unique collection systems and awareness programs. All supplies, containers and shipping labels are provided to Savings Direct customers.
Savings Direct customers receive support from a local Stryker representative, as well as a representative from Stryker’s division headquarters office. Both Stryker representatives work together to optimize reprocessing programs at every facility. In addition, customers receive 24/7 web access to a secure order management system to review account activity, device orders, and savings history.
