Decoding Supply Chain Analytics for Improved Cost, Quality, and Outcomes


As hospitals restructure to gain sustainability in an era of reform, it is crucial for supply chain leaders to work collaboratively within hospitals and health systems to identify new opportunities for cost reduction and areas that generate savings and improve outcomes.

While data is key to gaining an understanding of opportunities, too often it’s the overwhelming volume and inability to look at clinical, operational, and financial data side-by-side that hinders analysis and meaningful insight. This session will focus on key learnings and best practices using case studies from leading hospitals and healthcare systems that have successfully aligned their supply chain and strategic vision.
