The supply chain department of yesterday primarily focused on benchmarking, rationalizing and standardizing to achieve the lowest acquisition price for medical devices and supplies. The focus on price over quality unintentionally disenfranchised physicians and negatively impacted patient care.

However, the robust supply chain department of today is clinically integrated. Now, clinicians and supply chain professionals are actively working together to execute key cost, quality and outcomes initiatives.

Supply chain departments align incentives with their clinical colleagues to ensure that the focus is on patient care and value, instead of the lowest price for a product, service or medical device.

Join an elite group of expert clinicians and supply chain professionals as they share best practices on clinical integration in the health care supply chain. Effective change management strategies and tactics to build collaborative relationships between the supply chain and clinicians will be shared.

Register today to take the first step in positioning your supply chain team as the most valuable internal resource for physicians in your health care organization.

How this Session Relates to the Cost, Quality and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: CQO can be achieved when clinical and supply chain areas of a health system come together to promote patient focus and drive costs down through quality of products and decisions.

A clinically integrated supply chain takes the perspective of the patient and the caregivers, which unlocks all forms of value. This includes cost reduction, clinical quality improvement, reimbursement improvement, patient satisfaction improvement, physician engagement improvement, and risk reduction. 

Learning Objectives

  • Develop collaboration between clinical and supply chain to drive increased quality and outcomes.
  • Explain the value and key elements of collaboration.
  • Discuss how the physician experience impacts the patient experience.
