Webinar Recording Date: Thursday, November 1, 2018 | 1:00 p.m. ET
The operating room is one of the most expensive and operationally challenging areas in the hospital, making up 40% to 60% of total hospital supply costs.* These high-cost supplies flow through varied processes, some with specific requirements around tracking, documentation, and compliance. As hospitals adapt to meet meaningful use criteria, adoption of technology has never been greater, with ORs often using a patchwork of systems to address specific needs. Today’s OR leaders can benefit from automated technology to optimize the supply workflow, but must first align stakeholders on the process change to create a foundation for successful implementation and sustained adoption. With specialized support from change management professionals and an integrated supply management solution, all aspects of the OR supply chain can be streamlined. Learn how Cardinal Health has helped OR teams transform their supply chain and gain control of supply flow to ensure products are at the right place at the right time to support optimal patient care.
