Value Analysis programs are charged with evaluating products and services while balancing cost, quality, and outcomes in the decision. The quality of the products and the outcomes from using the products cannot be compromised, but today’s environment within health care dictates that cost is a significant factor influencing the decision. Unfortunately, the identified savings is not always realized in the anticipated time frame or to the full extent. Every week an initiative is delayed or not fully implemented results in lost dollars that cannot be recouped.

This presentation will focus on specific strategies and tactics, many of which start well before the opportunity is even identified, that can help increase the speed of adoption so that the analyzed opportunity becomes realized savings.

How this Session Relates to the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: Cost, Quality, and Outcomes are all integral to a successful Value Analysis program. This presentation will focus on cost reduction and how systems can close the gap between identified and realized savings.
