Hospitals and health systems waste millions annually on purchased services. Valify customers rely on the Valify technology to help them reduce and reclaim wasted spend by navigating and avoiding common pitfalls such as duplicate and rogue vendors, lack of visibility into quality benchmarks, and many others.
This season, we’re shedding light on another kind of waste - plastic waste.
Did you know that discarded plastics often end up in our oceans? According to OceanConcervancy.org, from the tiniest plankton to the largest whales, plastics impact nearly 700 species in our ocean.
Plastic has been found in more than 60% of all seabirds and in 100% of sea turtles species, that mistake plastic for food. And when animals ingest plastic, it can cause life-threatening problems, including reduced fitness, nutrient uptake and feeding efficiency—all vital for survival (oceanconservancy.com)
Plastics are especially difficult on endangered species such as the hawksbill and green sea turtle whose population is already threatened due to numerous other factors.
