As health care organizations evolve, their strategies to include population health, the total cost, episode and subsequently value of care provided will be determined by patient outcomes. And this means finding the right balance between Cost, Quality and Outcomes is no longer a nice-to-have sentiment; it will be critical to sustaining one's viability across clinical, financial and operational domains.
Who better to help drive a deep understanding and collaboration across these domains than health care supply chain professionals, as we live this balance every day by connecting those who purchase medical and non-medical goods and services with those who use these goods and services. Following a traditional sourcing process will not suffice. Value-focused supply chain leaders are dynamically changing to a clinically integrated supply chain.
This poster shows the steps necessary to pivot to clinical integration.
