Kaiser Will Give Weight to ‘Green’ Medical Products
Kaiser Permanente will be considering environmental data as one of six factors it uses to choose medical product suppliers. Suppliers hoping to win contracts with Kaiser will have to produce information on the chemical and recycled content of their products, packaging and whether the products are single or multiuse. The five other factors Kaiser weighs when choosing medical products are quality or clinical performance, assurance of supply, cost, service and innovation.
