How Inventory Redesign Strengthens the Clinically Integrated Supply Chain


Developing a clinically integrated supply chain can lead to organizational savings, a decrease in ordering of supplies outside of the supply chain and help return nurses and other clinical professionals back to their primary focus of patient care. A clinically integrated supply chain can be achieved through rapid standardization, Kanban reorganization and careful value analysis.

Learn how an organization can evolve its value analysis process into a clinically integrated system that is both practical and sustainable, uses best practice and evidence-based medicine and includes all necessary stakeholders. This AHRMM on-demand webinar explores what is needed for successful development and implementation of a clinically integrated team that can perform value analysis across a variety of facilities under one system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the benefits of clinical integration as it applies to supply chain and in relation to saving the time of clinical professionals.
  • Describe the process of rapid standardization and its effect on a system of provider organizations.
  • Outline the necessity of leadership involvement, principles of LEAN/Toyota Production System and sustainability of the process.

How this session relates to the Cost, Quality and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: Lower costs are the result of a program where products are carefully vetted by a clinically integrated team and placed and ordered on contract by the supply chain team. Through the implementation of the KanBan system and rapid standardization, clinicians will have more time to work with their patients, leading to improved quality patient care and ultimately the improvement of reimbursement outcomes.
