New Product Introduction
UUHC is committed to optimizing the value of care provided to our patients. In order to achieve this goal we build strong vendor partnerships that support a model of high quality and fair priced supplies. To manage this process we have established Value Analysis Committees throughout our institution that perform a value based review of all new products. If a vendor would like to offer a new product that supports this goal they must do the following:
Register with MedApproved
- Obtain a University Clinical Sponsor for the new product
- Submit your product request through MedApproved
- Follow the guidelines outlined in our Policies and Procedures
MedApproved is a web-based solution that provides UUHC with the ability to electronically engage with clinicians, product sourcing specialists, vendors and other important stakeholders when reviewing product requests. The end result is a multi-disciplinary team making decisions based on an educated understanding of how a given product will impact patient care, financials, and how the product will ultimately support our strategic goals.
