All Aboard: Supply Chain Operational Integration
Mergers and acquisitions create fiscal pressure, operational challenges, and technology questions, all leading to an environment ripe for supply chain opportunity. When healthcare facilities and hospitals merge or acquire other organizations, integrating the organizations is a top priority to realize operational and financial benefit. As supply chain typically represents over 40% of organizational spend, integration in this area is vital. Contract and spend integration is not fully achievable without its operational counterparts. Integrating established supply chain operations requires vision, planning, strategy, and a structured roadmap all incorporating the Cost, Quality, Outcomes vision and all SCM functional areas – with a focus on People, Process, Technology, and Data.
