Medical supply costs are rising. Product shortages still plague the field. Accurately predicting future product demand based on reliable data often remains more of a goal than a reality. Meanwhile, health systems are feeling significant financial pain as patient volumes slowly return to pre-pandemic levels — leading to ever-greater demands to reduce costs.
Health care supply chain leaders face no shortage of challenges in this environment. Still, top-performing organizations are optimizing sustainable, repeatable practices and processes to achieve operational excellence while maintaining a socially responsible approach to procurement.
Through focused clinical engagement, goal setting, data and analytics and strategic partnerships, these hospitals and health systems have developed more resilient and proactive approaches to identifying, vetting and purchasing sustainable products.
