2023 Together - PH316 - Quality and Cost: All That Glitters Is Not Gold - On Demand
This session will highlight the key elements of a systemwide change to improve the new request workflow for products, equipment and procedures — the New Product Committee (NPC). A new request workflow, facilitated via the NPC, imposes a preestablished set of criteria for product analysis that aligns with the system’s strategic goals, creates a multidisciplinary approach to new request reviews, and utilizes quality-based contract performance metrics to assess new requests following implementation. The session will cover workflow development, implementation, and health system impact, as well as how to look past the glitter that accompanies new requests.
