The 12 Fundamental Best Practices of Supply Chain Management

This white paper explores best practices for hospital leaders to transform the supply chain into a strategic driver of change that maximizes operating margins and improves patient care.

Among the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a focus on the importance of the supply chain. Many organizations have found that the cost of not being prepared is extremely high and that every department in a healthcare facility is impacted by vulnerabilities in the supply chain.

By actively identifying realistic and actionable opportunities for contract savings and product standardization, supply chain management strategies can help to transform the supply chain function to a strategic driver of change – from assessment and expense reduction to contract utilization management and operational benchmarking.

Benefits of an optimized supply chain include:

  • Reduced operational costs with a total cost of ownership focus.
  • Improved quality through increased compliance with contracts and reduced organizational risk.
  • Improved patient outcomes and safety through integrated systems to reduce errors and streamline procurement via automation.
