Designation recognizes products that bring improvements to the health care industry
Gaithersburg, MD, June 20, 2018 –Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company committed to improving Quality of Life, announced its Compliance Document Exchange (CDX) program has received a 2017 Innovative Technology designation from Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company in the country. The designation was based on direct feedback from hospital experts who interacted with Sodexo’s CDX at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange in Denver, Colo., on September 14, 2017.
The proprietary CDX program is part of Sodexo’s overall facilities management solution and ensures that facilities continuously comply with all Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements related to Environmental Services. Through this program, facility managers capture all data in an organized, consistent manner, allowing hospital staff to focus on clinical operations. Having a standard process ensures compliance and minimizes costly and urgent corrective responses. The CDX program provides a transparent review of required compliance documentation. Sodexo customers who have implemented this program have enjoyed a 99.98% success rate of regulatory documentation review.
“Regulatory readiness with CDX has been a significant component of Sodexo’s comprehensive facilities program that assures continuous compliance. We are very honored to have received this recognition by Vizient,” said George Amador, senior vice president, Facility Solutions, Sodexo Healthcare North America.
“Based on feedback from attendees at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange, it was determined Compliance Document Exchange should be recognized with an Innovative Technology designation. This designation will be noted in our online member contract catalog. Congratulations to Sodexo on receiving this status,” said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and Vizient Innovative Technology Program lead.
Vizient represents a diverse membership base that includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute healthcare providers and represents approximately $100 billion in annual purchasing volume. Through its Innovative Technology Program, Vizient works with member-led councils and task forces to review potentially innovative products. If it is determined that a product is innovative, Vizient may award a contract outside of the competitive bid cycle.
