Contracting strategies, negotiation, and centralized contract management processes can generate significant savings in one of the largest areas of spend. Purchased Services represents 20% of a facility's operating expenses and is generally overlooked as a savings opportunity, even though it can generate rapid savings. A team of Hospital Executives shares the lessons learned, implementation experiences, and savings they brought their facilities, focusing on the non-traditional areas of spend.


Learning Objectives:
  • Define the non-traditional areas of operating expense.
  • Articulate the service categories available within the scope of the engagement and average savings that can be achieved.
  • Leverage contracting and negotiation strategies to centralize your own Purchased Services program.
