St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) May 15, 2015
Amerinet, a leading national healthcare solutions organization, has been awarded the most prestigious environmental achievement award offered by Practice Greenhealth, the nation’s leading healthcare community that empowers its members to increase their efficiencies and environmental stewardship while improving patient safety and care through tools, best practices and knowledge.
The Top 25 Environmental Excellence Awards recognize healthcare organizations that exemplify environmental excellence and are setting the highest standards for environmental practices in healthcare. Award winners are chosen from organizations that have the highest scores for the Greenhealth Emerald Award using Practice Greenhealth's thorough scoring and evaluation system.
The 25 organizations presented with Practice Greenhealth's highest honors vary greatly in size, but are all leading the country in healthcare sustainability and have the data and documentation to prove their success. These groups have innovative programs and also show leadership in their local communities and in the healthcare sector.
“Amerinet is proud to work with its members to offer access to leading environmental programs that focus on balancing sustainability with fiscal responsibility, cleanliness and reducing healthcare waste,” said Todd Ebert, president and CEO. “We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to helping healthcare providers reach their goal of providing high quality patient care while protecting the environment.”
Among Amerinet’s accomplishments over the past year was the establishment of a Sustainability Member Input Group which meets quarterly to discuss issues regarding environmentally preferable purchasing and review innovative supplier solutions in the area of sustainability. They also established a contracting index for the Amerinet Member Resources website which identifies suppliers and contracts that offer products that are environmentally preferred. The company’s transition to a mainly virtual work environment in its St. Louis corporate headquarters has also allowed Amerinet to greatly reduce its carbon footprint.
The Practice Greenhealth Environmental Excellence Awards were presented in Portland, Oregon, May 14, at the CleanMed Conference & Exhibition, the premier national environmental conference for leaders in healthcare sustainability.
As a leading national healthcare solutions organization, Amerinet collaborates with acute and non-acute care providers to create and deliver unique solutions through performance improvement resources, guidance and ongoing support. With better product standardization and utilization, new financial tools beyond contracting and alliances that help lower costs, raise revenue and champion quality, Amerinet enriches healthcare delivery for its members and the communities they serve.
