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. (PNC Healthcare and GHX, 2011) RFID is a key technology that is enabling health systems, distributors and manufactures to partner together to remove this waste. Successful implementation of RFID in a healthcare delivery organization takes careful planning, execution, and change management agility.
This course provides an overview of various types and uses of information systems in supply chain management, system standards and requirements, inventory tracking methods and data analysis, and the process of implementing a new materials management information system (MMIS). This course is also available as part of the CMRP bundle.
Cybersecurity vulnerabilities and intrusions pose risks for every hospital and its reputation. Become aware of what you can do to prevent cyber security in your facility.
In order to become data-driven organizations, healthcare providers need to leverage data standards and information technology. In the past, lack of standards across healthcare has been a major roadblock. However, numerous governmental and industry initiatives pursuing the adoption and implementation of supply chain standards across health IT systems are giving providers the opportunity to do just that. Standards lay the foundation for supply chain operations to leverage information technology to help transform healthcare providers into data-driven organizations.
Overview: Healthcare Supply Chain is rapidly changing and consolidating. Are your IT systems equipped to help you manage this change? Other industries have relevant lessons, processes, and applications. Next generation systems on the cloud offer an asset-light way for you to jump to the next generation. Cloud technology can deliver the visibility, insights, and capabilities that on-premises systems do not, but are needed to create a more effective, efficient and intelligent supply chain.
Overview: Tracking and locating surgical supplies and their utilization is a challenge faced by most hospitals. Average supply returns for picked supplies is low and O.R. room in and out traffic to retrieve unavailable items is high, and significant staff hours are spent checking consumption and restocking and locating supplies.
