Past Due: An Open Discussion About Sustainability
2:50 PM - 3:40 PM
Medical devices are used to preserve and improve health, but their use can also negatively impact our environment. While patient care and safety are paramount, companies can often use project timelines, budgets, and regulations to push topics like sustainability and environmental impact to the back burner. A lack of discourse around sustainable processes is a common and unnecessary barrier; companies have much to gain from a broader view of best practices. Canon Virginia, Inc. invites its customers and others in the medical device industry to discuss sustainability openly. This discussion will be an engaging survey of topics ranging from business models to product lifecycle management. Joining Canon Virginia will be Gradian Health Systems, a non-profit medical technology company focused on resource-constrained hospitals worldwide.
