Cost Savings through Reprocessing of Single-use Devices
The lowering of the overall cost of healthcare through the reprocessing of single-use devices is the primary factor driving this market. In Germany, the reprocessing has been regulated for over a decade with a large number of hospitals showing significant cost savings. It has been strictly subjected to monitoring and surveillance by public authorities and the European Union (EU)-accredited notified body. Similarly, in the United Kingdom, Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) legalized the use and manufacture of reprocessed single-use medical devices for use. In addition, it helps insurers and hospitals for better management and reduced healthcare costs with the improvement of the healthcare system.
Other major factors responsible are the rising significance of medical waste minimization and the positive effects on environment sustainability.
Preconceived Notion Regarding the Quality of Reprocessed Single-use Medical Devices
Despite the fact that the reprocessed SUDs are cost-saving including waste-reduction practice, still, there are several concerns being raised, which prevent many people to build trust on these devices. The patients and their families have often raised issues regarding patient safety, patient’s informed consent, manufacturing standards for both the original manufacturer and the reprocessing company including the potential ethical issues of “single-use” devices re-use. This preconceived notion directly impedes the growth of the market
Other factors impeding this market are the decreased manufacturer’s profit and regulatory scenario.
Germany Expected to Dominate the Market
Germany is expected to dominate the market. The presence of well-established regulations and presence of major companies in SUDs such as Vanguard AG, which has several reprocessing sites in Europe, including several in Germany itself, help in the growth of this market in this country. The reprocessing helps in cost saving for items, such as the balloon catheters used in hospitals.
