Supply Chain Optimization

Supply Chain Optimization

Building a demand-driven, efficient and resilient supply chain that results in overall margin improvement

With the Affordable Care Act putting intense pressure on improving clinical care quality and cost, similar scrutiny should be placed on healthcare’s supply chain, including reduction in the entire spectrum of non-labor spend (supply, purchased services and pharmacy expense).

A few key targets include:

  • Pricing Optimization – analyze pricing opportunities, develop strategic sourcing strategies, and implement cost savings through supplier negotiations and contract compliance
  • Purchased Services – identify areas for standardization and process improvement through supplier consolidation and policy changes
  • Physician Preference Items – drive cost savings and utilization reductions on clinical supplies in collaboration with physicians and clinical leadership
