Leaders in health care organizations throughout the United States and beyond are looking to the supply chain for big data to determine actionable business insights of products used during patient care. The insights gathered can support the purchasing decisions of contracting and value analysis teams.

Big data identifies product fluctuations, uncovers quality issues, and procedural standardization variances, among other benefits. However, the data collected from various stakeholder groups, in a health care organization, can be disparate if the data process is not streamlined.

During this AHRMM webinar, experts will discuss the challenges of disparate technology systems in a health care organization and how big data can be synchronized to identify actionable business insights. After this webinar, attendees will have a better understanding of big data and how it can improve outcomes in their health care organization.

How this Session Relates to the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: When working together in a partnership, supply chain and information technology can advance efficiencies in workflow, identify and implement opportunities to lower costs, and improve patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how information technology and supply chain teams can work together to connect disparate data to identify actionable insights to improve outcomes, pinpoint variation and reduce costs.
  • Discover ways that the supply chain can leverage the information technology department to track supplies, reduce unwarranted variation and optimize par levels.
  • How to connect information technology and the supply chain, ensuring that any technology bought will drive speed to value and will integrate with technology and processes already in use or help drive to leading practices.

Target Audience:

  • Supply chain managers, supply chain directors, supply chain vice presidents, information technology managers, information technology directors and chief technology officers.
