Published: 31 Aug 2017

Advances in technology coupled with the need to achieve the triple aim of the healthcare system i.e., reduce cost, improve quality, and increase access to healthcare, have enabled a shift in care towards outpatient departments, physician's offices, and home care. Over the last 10 years, the frequency of procedures performed in physician’s offices and clinics/polyclinics has grown significantly. Factors driving the shift towards outpatient settings and physician’s offices and clinics include decreasing reimbursement, growing consumer demand, and advances in minimally invasive technologies and techniques. Efforts towards infection control and the prevention of cross infection by instruments have mainly focused on hospital practices. With the increasing number of procedures in physician’s offices, the focus of infection control is shifting towards this space. This analysis focusses on the sterilization market trends for reusable surgical instruments used in dental, gynecology, ENT, and cosmetic clinics/offices. Its geographical scope covers Germany France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
