RN Karen Kiefer discussed the impact packaging has on purchasing decisions at Texas Health Resources (THR) during HealthPack 2006. Healthcare continues to change dramatically for professionals at THR, a faith-based, nonprofit U.S. healthcare system that includes 13 hospitals and more than 2,400 licensed beds and serves patients in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. As director, operating room supply chain management, Kiefer explained some of the key packaging challenges THR faces in her presentation, "The Impact of Packaging on Purchase Decisions." They include the following:

Designed for 2° to 8° C (with excursions of 1° to 10° C) for 24-hour applications, the Tempak Plus insulated shippers with refrigerants are pretested against the standard ISTA 7D summer profile. Each Tempak Plus comes with the EPS insulated shipping container and specified refrigerant gel packs; available either assembled or unassembled and include conditioning and packout instructions.
