Flower Orthopedics Launches FlowerAdvantage, an Ambulatory Surgery Center Efficiency and Savings Partnership
HORSHAM, Pa., Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Flower Orthopedics, the leader in Ready-For-Surgery™ extremity implant systems, announces the release of its FlowerAdvantage™ Program, a multi-level initiative designed to reduce the costs of providing care in the ambulatory surgery center setting. "The FlowerAdvantage™ Program has four pillars that generate costs savings and positively impact the operations of surgery centers, while providing patients with the highest standard of care," said Oliver Burckhardt, President and CEO of Flower Orthopedics.
The four pillars of costs savings in the FlowerAdvantage™ Program are FlowerBucketPrice™ where all components needed for the case are identified, bundled and sold without any hidden or extra costs; Flower ECO Implant™ Line is a value based implant portfolio capable of accommodating challenging reimbursement scenarios; FlowerBuyBack™ Program allows the surgery center to sell back to Flower used single-use instruments from the case; and Flower Ready-For-Surgery™ eliminates operational costs associated with processing trays, inherent case delays & cancellations, and infection risks.
"The FlowerAdvantage™ Program meets a significant unmet need in the outpatient surgery market. With bundled payments and other initiatives driving down reimbursements, surgery centers must find other means to cut costs without diminishing patient care," said Mr. Burckhardt. The FlowerAdvantage™ Program provides costs savings through the efficiency-based value proposition that other companies cannot provide. The Ready-For-Surgery FlowerCube™ relieves the burden of the surgery center to clean, sterilize, track and manage implant trays, saving considerable time and cost. Flower is focused on providing its customers with many options that improve the level of patient care, while reducing the costs incurred by the healthcare system as a whole.
