Getz Clinical is committed to business practices which continually reduce our impact on the environment.
Internally, Getz Clinical identifies and implements strategies to minimise its carbon footprint. Initiatives include maximised use of natural lighting, virtual meetings, work from home policies, and online training and product demonstrations. Offices are situated near public transport and bicycle paths.
Our sustainability commitment extends to helping our customers achieve similar outcomes.
GCC replaces paper records with integrated electronic medical records sourced directly from clinicians, patients and patient monitoring devices. By using our system your hospital can streamline your administrative practices, ultimately reducing your carbon footprint.
100% replacement of paper-based patient records
A surgical procedure typically produces at least 15 pages of paper records. For a hospital that treats 10,000 patients per year this equates to at least 150,000 records, resulting in an annual carbon emission of at least 1,260kg and requiring 18,000 litres of water.
GCC replaces traditional paper-based records with electronic records, eliminating this impact.
Paperless records support our global customers to achieve Healthcare Information and Management System Society (HIMSS) Level 7 accreditation.
88% improved energy saving through virtualisation
Virtualisation is inherently more environmentally friendly than traditional, physical server solutions due to the high rate of unnecessary data and power use.
Getz Clinical implements solutions for storing patient records securely on systems that consume less than 12% of the typical server energy requirements.
Our long-term commitment is to work with partners to achieve 100% renewable energy use for technology infrastructure.
99% of Getz Clinical’s marketing is digital
Getz Clinical’s marketing strategy is 99% digital. All brochures, proposals, product manuals and support materials are designed for and cater to online viewing through interactive PDFs, web content and other digital media formats.
Our approach results in a significantly reduced carbon footprint through the elimination of print runs and associated transportation costs.
94% better than industry averages in corporate printing
The average corporate employee prints 10,000 sheets of paper per year, of which up to 68% is wasted.
In 2014 Getz Clinical adopted a paper-free workplace policy and today our employees print on average 600 sheets per year, 94% better than industry averages.
99% of redundant hardware is recycled
We only use accredited electronic waste recyclers who meet ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standards.
Approximately 99% of our IT hardware components are recycled, which significantly reduces the quantities of toxins, chemical and heavy metals (such as mercury and lead) entering landfills.
