The lack of end-to-end supply chain visibility in the medical device channel contributes to an estimated five billion dollars ($5B) of inventory waste for the U.S. health system today.

Successful implementation of RFID in a healthcare delivery organization takes careful planning, execution, and change management agility.

Today hospitals and health care organizations are looking to health care supply chain professionals to help support patient care activities. No longer is the supply chain department and its staff relegated to a purely operational position of providing inventory and stocking. The supply chain now has a voice at the table with representation on committees and working quality improvement projects. With collaboration, there is a major fiscal, administrative, and operational role to play. This supply chain role allows for an interprofessional partnership with clinicians working for improved patient outcomes.
