The goal of the healthcare industry is to deliver optimal care while cutting overall costs. Hospital executives, board members, and industry leaders have deliberated how exactly to accomplish this goal for years. Recently, Becker's Hospital Review published a piece trying to attack this matter. In the article, “Three high-impact areas of oppurtunity to empower your supply chain", three factors were identified that can help healthcare systems improve their quality of care while concurrently reducing costs. The three key elements on this list were: Logistics solutions, Procedural kitting solutions, and Inventory management solutions.
When it comes to having a successful and efficient medical supply chain, decision makers must consider many facets, and number one on the list according to Becker's Hospital Review is their logistics solutions. In the article, it is stated one of the best ways to ‘cut overhead expenses in half and reduce total operating cots by 5-10%’ is to centralize shipment spend. If you centralize your logistics, you provide yourself with more control over the courier process thus reducing redundancies, mistakes, and spend within your organization.
