Supply Chain Strategic Planning

Increase Efficiency, Lower Supply Costs and Clinically Integrate Your Supply Chain

The Challenge

Health care organizations rely heavily on Supply Chain to deliver critical supplies at the right time, to the right place, at the right cost.

As hospitals partner, merge or grow, the Supply Chain function can be fractured across many facilities or even in the same facility. It’s not uncommon for the Surgery, Cath Lab, and other Support Services departments to have their own contracting, purchasing, and distribution staff and function separate from the Supply Chain department. This is inefficient, redundant, and expensive.

The process begins with an extensive review of data and documents, coupled with one-on-one interviews with individuals who perform supply chain functions, as well as the supply chain’s executive leadership.
