Update on Recent Supply Disruptions

HealthPRO continues to work with hospital operational teams and shared service organizations to provide critical information around potential or confirmed supply disruptions.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

HealthPRO is actively working to assist members with their pandemic management as it relates to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

A Product Status Summary which outlines identified current supply disruptions, products on allocation, and known delays is now available on the MM Supply Disruptions section of the HealthPROCONNECT Portal along with all other related communications.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Member Support representative.


Surgical Custom & Standard Packs, Drapes & Gowns (Cardinal Health)

As Cardinal Health has recalled both its AAMI III Single Sterile Gowns and Presource® Packs which contain the AAMI III gowns, HealthPRO is working directly with Cardinal Health to provide timely updates to its membership as the situation evolves.

Members can log into the HealthPROCONNECT Portal in the MM Supply Disruptions section for updates on the situation, recommended member action and HealthPRO next steps.

Additionally, Cardinal Health has created a webpage dedicated to recent updates and customer communications which can be found at cardinalhealth.com/surgicalgownproductrecall.

HealthPRO members should continue working with their local Cardinal Health customer care representative on any specific or unique needs related to custom packs. If you are unsure of your representative, please find below the general inboxes that Cardinal uses to manage the influx of requests and the general number as an additional resource.

European Union Medical Device Regulations

As of May 1, 2020, the European Union (EU) will be implementing changes to their current Medical Device Regulations aimed at overall device safety and effectiveness. Some changes that can be anticipated are device reclassification, as well as Safety and Performance Requirements.

In preparation for any possible impact to current contracts, HealthPRO is working diligently with suppliers to determine any anticipated changes or supply disruptions.

To best serve members, further information, including any impact and timelines, will be provided as soon as it is available.
