New Product Entry - Health System

The Product and Resource Equipment Team (PERT) Committee ensures all products utilize evidence-based outcomes, clinical quality, fiscally responsible ideals, and inventory management principles that continue to provide a safe environment of care for our patients. They take responsibility for managing and analyzing all incoming requests for supplies, devices, implants, equipment and technology (“products”) to be used at Duke University Health System.

The PERT committee manages, evaluates, approves new product requests and trials and optimize products and equipment utilization by evaluating and standardizing existing and new products which are pertinent to Duke Medicine Nursing Care and Allied Health Services.

All product requests for trial or purchase must be approved by Duke Medicine's Product and Equipment Review Team (PERT) prior to bringing the product into the hospital.
