High reliability is being used by healthcare organizations across the country in an effort to reduce medical errors and improve patient safety. However, to truly reduce errors and improve financial and operational performance across a health system, high reliability concepts should be adopted in all areas—not just clinical care settings.
Supply chain management accounts for all hospital expenses outside of labor. True cost reduction strategies are grounded in value—or cost, quality, and outcomes (CQO)-based supply management—the key driver in creating a sustainable financial model. As hospitals evolve and adapt to value-based, patient-centered models, their supply management strategy must evolve as well. This webinar will discuss the cultural and operational transformation that is required to ensure that your supply strategy is aligned with your organization’s quality and financial goals.
