The site Facilitator at Loma Linda University Medical Center , Dan Prokop, explains the Operating Room Device Technician (ORDT®) Curriculum and invites others to enroll in the program.
The ORDT Curriculum is a Learning and Development Curriculum that is comprised of 30 different modules. These modules include both instructor led mentoring, as well as ongoing training that is accessible via the LMS (Learning Management System). The content of these modules ranges from orthopedic economics and personal growth to clinical and technical skills. Ultimately, the goal of these modules is to transform the culture of the operating room and to take back ownership of their orthopedic service line and to continue providing the utmost support for your surgeons.
Site Facilitator, Dan Prokop, explains the difference between the traditional supply chain model vs. the Direct-Access model that OrthoDirectUSA implements.
The traditional orthopedic supply chain is what is known as a “push” distribution model. This means that the traditional orthopedic companies build incredible high inventories, and then hire a huge sales force to push those inventories onto the market. This is highly inefficient for a couple of reasons, first of all, the high inventory cost, translate to high product costs. Second of all, the influence of the sales reps pushing their product onto the market sometimes encourages the use of products or quantities of products that aren’t entirely necessary. In fact, studies show that the cost of the case significantly increases if the sales rep is in the room. OrthoDirectUSA reengineers this model, by introducing what is called a Direct-Access™ “pull” distribution model, this means that instead of allowing products to be pushed on them, hospitals and surgeons determine proactively what products and implants they need, and then take ownership of those products. You see, when a hospital or surgeon can transition form a renter or a consignment mindset, to the far more efficient mindset of an owner, they are able to determine what is best and needed for their patients without the costly outside influence of a rep. When the hospital and surgeons take ownership of these products, and buy them directly, they can experience a savings of 50-80% of their orthopedic implant spend.
