2023 Together - P401- A Substitute for Hard Work - On Demand
Stormont Vail Health, like other healthcare facilities, struggles with product availability and finding suitable substitute products. Our supply chain goal is to be unnoticed, so that clinicians have the products they need to provide quality patient care without worrying about how the product arrived, who manufactured it or what is required to keep items on the shelf. Supply chain uses whatever resources are available to do the heavy lifting so clinicians can provide seamless care. We started using a combination of the Vizient Data Management Platform (formerly DataLYNX) for cross-references and ECRI for outcomes information to avoid stock-outs and stay ahead of backorders.
