2022 Stronger - PH366 - Powering Mayo Clinic Supply Chain Analytics Through Product Information Management - On Demand

Having accurate product information is more important than ever before. Even more vital is putting that product information at the fingertips of the people who need it. Mayo Clinic implemented a product information management system that allows us to do just that. From more than 650,000 contracted products and more than 6,500 pharmacy formulary products we have found ways to increase trusted data, data attribution, accessibility, patient safety, and dissemination and communication. We’ve also reduced spend and can now track substitutes and clinically equivalent products, as well as put data management in the hands of those who need it.

Target Audience

  • Pharmacists
  • Other Healthcare Professionals

Learning Objectives

Explain the benefits of using a product information management system.

Describe successful strategies to streamline pharmaceutical formulary workflows within a health system.

Differentiate device and supply management versus pharmaceutical formulary management.
