Posted by ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists on Apr 6, 2016 8:32:04 AM

The increasing shift to consumerism over the past few years most likely has you up against some challenges in the medical industry. To better provide for your patients, it is crucial that you conquer the rising challenges of the medical field. But how? We know one thing that can help you indefinitely – opting to partner with vendors such as us at ImageFIRST Cleveland, who aims to help with greater patient satisfaction by being your cost-effective solution.


We recognize that our customers, (who are medical facilities such as yourself) have been facing an ever-changing landscape on a multitude of planes. The obstacles that have surfaced are due to a variety of factors in the field; increased communication between patients and their providers on social media, the distribution of the CAHPS surveys, and the Affordable Care Act of 2010 are just some. As a result, you probably continue to drive improvements in major areas of your facility. Three major focuses have been preventing infections, cost management, and enhancing the patient experience.  


Improving the Patient Experience

We keep patients at the heart of everything we do, which is why we have designed our services so that our customers can conquer their challenges. We aim to be the affordable solution for renting, delivering, and cleaning healthcare laundry products such as nurse scrubs in Dayton, OH. Quality linen products can have a big impact on the treatment experience of patients. If you are trying to take a more holistic approach to the patient experience of your facility, then our services can help you achieve your goal. Have you heard about our Comfort Care line of gowns? It is a high-quality collection of gowns that are created with exceptionally soft fabric so that patients can feel extra warm and comfortable during their treatment. Our Comfort Care line is just one patient-experience-focused strategy out of many that we offer to medical facilities.


Improving Cost Management

How is your cost management initiative going? Another way we help our customers overcome industry challenges is by assisting with cost management. We put ValueFIRST when it comes to our services! When you partner with us for medical scrub uniforms in Dayton, OH, or other products, we provide comprehensive cost management services which include inventory management, a fair pricing module, and transparent billing. ValueFIRST puts those who are focused on consolidation and those looking to streamline their services at an advantage.


Improving Infection Prevention

Did you know that healthcare acquired infections continue to affect every 1 out of 25 patients? Minimizing HAIs is an area of focus now more than ever. Just recently, the Joint Commission – an independent nonprofit group that accredits healthcare groups and programs – created a new Patient Safety Officer position to enhance safety and quality at both the system and organizational levels to eliminate patient harm. Ronald M. Wyatt, MD, MHA has been anointed as the first person to take on the position.


Joining in the efforts of minimizing HAIs, we provide our customers with AssuranceFIRST, which is our way of ensuring that our cleaning, renting and delivery services exceed the infection prevention standards of the industry. We have numerous processes and services put in place to prevent infections even after the products have left our location, such as encasing products in plastic and washing products with an advanced formula that destroys up to 99.999% of pathogens.
