Training – Technology – Efficient Equipment & Practices
To remain among the most progressive healthcare linen and laundry providers in North America, our team at Ecotex looks beyond our industry to the most efficient manufacturers in the world. Using benchmarking and self-assessment, we identify best practice methods and techniques that consistently deliver better results.
Here are some of our most recent innovations…
ELM© (Ecotex Linen Manager) saves on costs and improves efficiency. ELM© is our proprietary web-based linen management system – it’s an important tool to manage linen utilization and optimize resources for our customer’s linen programs.
EcoGown© is a new generation of hospital gown.
Developed and designed by Ecotex, the EcoGown© features a large sweep that wraps around the rear of the patient. EcoGown© has shown utilization reductions of 24%
, primarily by eliminating ‘double gowning’. To learn more about our EcoGown
Ecotex TexCap, our guaranteed utilization program, has helped reduce linen usage by more than 10%. Since 2010, health systems using the Ecotex TexCap program have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars annually on linens not used, and not laundered, significantly reduced their environmental impact.
Lean Six Sigma (LSS) helps attack production inefficiencies. Lean and Six Sigma are separate yet compatible business management strategies that incorporate data-driven tools to solve problems and create process improvement at a lower cost. Using LSS helps us provide our customers the right linen to the right place at the right time in the right quantities – every time.
