Supply Chain Management is a complex group of processes that spans many departments, touching all areas of the healthcare organization. Supply Chain Management often contains inherent operational gaps, risks, and financial challenges.
Healthcare Supply Chain Management is much more than inventory management. An effective Supply Chain Management program is one of the primary vehicles for achieving operational, financial and patient satisfaction goals. It serves as the engine for increasing revenue and decreasing operating expenses. Optimizing Supply Chain Management is a key component in preparing for a successful MEDITECH 6.1x implementation.
East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and NTT DATA Services will discuss how they partnered to assess the current state of Supply Chain Management operations and develop an action plan that leveraged MEDITECH to implement effective optimization strategies to increase revenue and decrease expenses.
When you attend this session, you will learn:
• Steps in assessing current state
• MEDITECH tools for benchmarking and monitoring financial performance
• The significance of aligned Change Management
• Common breakdown points
• Recommendations for removing barriers to success
