HFMA Annual Conference Presentation: Healthcare Disrupted: Supply Chain Transformation through High Reliability
June 26 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am EDT
Fiscal pressure, mergers and acquisitions, policy reforms, increasing healthcare consumerism, a growing supplier/ competitor market, and technology innovations are enhancing the already complicated healthcare environment. Healthcare supply chain has a target drawn with the disruption arrow headed towards the bullseye.
With pressure mounting, supply chains (manufactures, distributors, technology vendors, and end-user hospitals) have been forced to transition from the historic transaction supply chain model to a strategic one focused on clinically integrated cost savings, revenue generation, and operational agility. Taking a High Reliability Organization (HRO) approach to this transformation drives success.
- Describe what it means and what it takes to be a high reliability organization and its relationship to financial improvement
- Apply organizational change management techniques within supply chain fiscal and operational areas
- Explain how a technology and analytics based approach should be used to optimize a strategic approach to agile financial and operational improvement
