Today, health systems are being forced to leverage disparate data from internal and external sources to drive business intelligence solutions. Given the pressures for cost reduction in the supply chain, more leaders are looking at big data business intelligence solutions to support contracting and value analysis teams. With a focus on utilization, big data solutions can identify product fluctuations, and uncover quality issues and procedural standardization variances. But implementing technology is not a magic bullet to solve your organization’s challenges. You must harness its power properly.

In this webinar, we review some of the challenges of disparate technology systems and how data can be better synchronized to drive meaningful understandings that fuel decisions. Learn the necessary tools and resources to better understand big data business intelligence solutions and how they can drive improvement in the supply chain.

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


Learning Objectives:
  • Describe how IT and SC teams can work together to connect disparate data in order to identify actionable insights to improve outcomes, pinpoint variation, and reduce costs.
  • Discover ways that SC can leverage IT to track supplies, reduce unwarranted variation, and optimize par levels.
  • Learn how to better connect IT and SC, ensuring that any technology bought will drive speed to value, integrate with technology and processes already in use, and help drive leading practices.


Target Audience:

Supply chain managers, directors and VPs, along with IT managers and directors and Chief Technology Officers.
