Healthcare providers are the “retailers” in the healthcare value chain, but with an ever more complicated and dynamic store front. As providers approach cost efficiencies through economics of scale via acquisitions and other distributed means of care, the movements of material become more complex and costly. Whether a large IDN or a smaller provider system, material, inventory and distribution costs are generally the second highest cost category behind labor.
Devising and implementing a sound strategy takes deep experience in every aspect of the healthcare supply chain—from projecting future business requirements to building vendor relationships to making positive changes in receiving and storage processes, inventory levels, product flow, transportation strategies and more.
