Healthcare expenses continue to rise and yet hospitals are realizing consistently shrinking margins. Healthcare supply costs are typically the second largest expense to a hospital and must be managed in a manner that ensures providers have access to quality products but also with an emphasis on cost awareness and expense reduction strategies. Healthcare supply chains must leverage their data in order to make better business decisions to reduce costs and increase operational efficiencies through the use of business analytics.

2018 AHRMM CQO Summit: Each year at the annual AHRMM Cost, Quality and Outcomes (CQO) Summit, participants throughout the health care field come together to share their knowledge, leading practices and ideas on supply chain’s role in delivering higher quality care at a more affordable cost. The CQO Summit discussions, in turn, inform the next year’s CQO report, which guides the development of the agenda for that year’s Summit.
As health care organizations look for ways to meaningfully impact cost, quality and outcomes, they are expanding the care delivery continuum and increasingly transitioning services out of the hospital and into non-acute settings. Today, 95 percent of patient visits take place in non-acute care facilities, from the physician’s office to patients’ homes. This volume is likely to grow as health systems turn to new models designed to impact the health of target patient populations.
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.
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.
The Critical Link Between Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) and Unique Device Identification (UDI) White Paper
In an effort to capture broader insights on UDI adoption from across the health care field, AHRMM, with participation by the FDA, held LUC Data Quality Workshops during four conferences in 2017. During these workshops, conference attendees had the opportunity to voice their opinions on the state of UDI data quality, hurdles to UDI adoption and what recommended practices are necessary for providers and suppliers to effectively capture the UDI and use it in meaningful ways.
In 2014, AHRMM hosted the first Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Summit to bring healthcare thought leaders together to discuss particular supply chain issues and concerns. The results of those conversations were used to develop the first task force and to shape the agenda for the second CQO Summit, held in 2015. This white paper was written as a recap of the AHRMM17 CQO Summit, held in July 2017 in Washington, D.C.
