How to drive standards across your organization

Standards are vital to your project’s success, which is why they need to be universally accepted across your organization. If you’re having a hard time getting your team on board, here are four strategies for establishing and driving the adoption of organizational equipment standards.

Include all key stakeholders.

Assembling a cross-functional team is critical to managing a top-notch equipment standardization initiative. Your team should include everyone who operates, interfaces, and comes into contact with the equipment. This can include:
Not every organization will be able to include all of these stakeholders, but the more stakeholders who are consulted, the more opportunity that all aspects of improving patient care can be addressed.

Make sure standards are highly visible

Whether you’re exporting and routing a full equipment list, holding a global meeting, or working in a medical equipment planning platform, your team’s awareness of industry standards is crucial to your success. Enabling your stakeholders to easily access and validate chosen equipment to make recommendations enhances the opportunity for a successful equipment standardization project. With Attainia from Revalize, you can grant access to each of your stakeholders so they can easily review the equipment list.

Establish leadership buy-in

Support from key executives and managers ensures that the standards are followed and you can avoid off-standard purchases for one-off items or physician preference items.

Review and update your standards on a regular basis

Select a timeframe that works for your organization — perhaps every three to five years — to audit the standards you’ve put in place. Evaluate your results over time and ask yourself some key questions, such as:
Make sure the standards you created are still serving your organization, or update accordingly.
