Health providers have a significant opportunity to improve and sustain operating performance by addressing their supply chains in a holistic manner.
The traditional non-labor supply chain represents 40 percent of the typical hospital system's total operating expenses, with roughly 25 percent of supply chain expenses related to administration, overhead, logistics, ineffectiveness and inefficiency.
The supply chain is a critical process that can and must evolve. Health organizations need a supply chain strategy that identifies processes to be improved, the architecture for technologies and data, and competencies for their people. We believe that one size doesn't fit all. Depending on their situation and objectives, health organizations can adopt different types of supply chains.
