High reliability is being used by healthcare organizations across the country in an effort to reduce medical errors and improve patient safety. However, to truly reduce errors and improve financial and operational performance across a health system, high reliability concepts should be adopted by all departments across an organization, both clinical and operational.
Supply chain management accounts for the totality of hospital expenses outside of labor. True cost reduction strategies are grounded in value—or cost, quality, and outcomes (CQO)-based supply management—the key driver in creating a sustainable financial model. As hospitals evolve to adapt to value-based, patient-centered models, so must their supply management strategy. This webinar will discuss the cultural and operational transformation that is required to ensure your supply strategy is aligned with your organization's quality and financial goals.
