More than $1 million is spent on supplies per OR suite each year. 1 With continual pressure to reduce spending while improving quality of care and outcomes, the need for clear data throughout the OR supply chain has never been greater.
What if there was a way to break down barriers in the OR supply chain and establish clear responsibilities between clinical and materials management teams while having visibility as to the true cost of supplies and its impact on patient outcomes?
See how the use of automation paired with RFID technology has been able to successfully align the OR supply chain. Automation, combined with data-driven decisions and open communication with clinicians and materials management, has positioned stakeholders to work together to better predict, trend, and analyze product utilization information at every touchpoint throughout their OR supply chain.
- Discuss the challenges faced by today’s OR leaders.
- Describe the steps needed for a strong inventory management platform that will help drive organizational alignment and workflow efficiency while reducing cost and waste.
- Discuss how the right data can position OR leaders to better analyze and predict key supply needs or changes.
