Improving Waste Expense Management in Healthcare

Healthcare providers have specialized waste expense management needs. Cass works with all types of facilities, including assisted living communities, hospitals, dental offices, blood and plasma centers and skilled nursing organizations, to contain their waste and recycling costs. Today’s healthcare facilities are confronted and challenged with declining reimbursements and revenue sources as a result controlling operational costs becomes a higher priority than ever before. Healthcare providers are facing unique challenges regarding their waste and recycling: 

  • Staffing shortages and turnover
  • Steep, unpredictable price growth 
  • Inability to audit invoices and usage per complex billing formats 
  • Strict regulations and high cost of Regulated Medical Waste (RMW)
