Advanced Sterilization Products’ Global Commercial Leader Sets Sights On Preventing HAIs In Asia

Advanced Sterilization Products’ (ASP) recently appointed Vice President, General Manager and Global Commercial Leader, Nilesh Shah looks to strengthen ASP’s footing in growing markets to improve healthcare standards by reducing the rate of healthcare-associated infections (HAI).

After successfully managing the transition from Johnson & Johnson to Fortive as the parent arm in 2019, Nilesh is expanding ASP into emerging markets in Asia to equip healthcare facilities with infection prevention technologies and workflow solutions to increase efficacy and productivity.

To secure these ventures, ASP actively works with regulators and healthcare providers to reduce or prevent the rate of HAIs. ASP also works with other organisations like the Hongkong Sterile Supplies Management Association and Infection Control Nurses Association that support the prevention of HAIs by organising seminars and conferences.

“As a resource in combating Covid-19 and other infections, we hope to overcome the medical equipment sanitisation hurdles in current times with high-tech sterilization processes to minimise residue on the sterilised items which in turn will raise the level of healthcare and safety,” Nilesh said.

According to the World Health Organization, 7 out of every 100 hospitalised patients are infected with healthcare-associated diseases in developed countries. These numbers rise in developing countries, where 10 out of every 100 patients become infected. *

In an effort to reduce these infections, Nilesh is determined to tackle sanitisation issues in healthcare facilities by making these solutions accessible to healthcare providers. He cited that the lack of manpower, time, equipment, tool limitation and other resources are primary driving causes to this rising issue.

During the pandemic, Nilesh adopted a digital approach to maintain business and employee morale. “Digital adoption became a crucial aspect as in-person meetings were minimised. Shifting our communications and educational tools to a fully digital platform enabled healthcare professionals and customers to operate safely within their space while receiving the necessary support as they would have pre-pandemic.”  

ASP’s determination to push through the pandemic in the best manner earned their Singapore, China and most recently Vietnam wings as certified Great Places to Work in July, September and October 2021, respectively. This recognition seal is awarded to companies with outstanding workplace culture which is attained through a rigorous data driven process of employee feedback – a reflection of employee satisfaction.
