2022 Stronger - PH336 - Supply Chain Process Improvement: From Problems to Opportunities - On Demand
This session features a panel of health care leaders who will share their experiences and discuss successful improvements to high-impact supply chain processes.
At the University of Chicago Medical Center, bill-only manual requisitions were resulting in the use of noncontracted products, and much of the process was inefficiently tracked through email — leading to pricing inconsistencies and inaccuracies that resulted in longer payment cycles and invoice holds. The supply chain team streamlined the bill-only process using a cloud-based solution, coupled with process and data standardization, to automate the requisitioning and purchase order creation process. Leaders will share this streamlined process, as well as the project’s challenges and outcomes.
Froedtert Health’s established goal is to drive a more clinically integrated supply chain with a robust data and analytics platform. Its supply chain clinical value analytics team created dashboards that demonstrate physician utilization of supplies and implants in correlation with clinical data, such as procedure times, patient age groupings, revision rates and more. These dashboards have been transformative in maintaining contract compliance, identifying gaps, decreasing clinical variance and developing transparency.
Join this session to learn about exciting new process improvements in supply chain and value analysis.
