Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Hospital clinicians and administrators both want to deliver quality patient care as efficiently as possible. Yet the technology systems they use to achieve that objective differ.

The gap between clinical and administrative systems is problematic to hospitals as the electronic health record system and the enterprise resource planning system are critical. Even systems that are proficient at capturing data typically have data sharing limitations resulting in missed charge capture, lost inventory, higher waste and burdensome manual data entry for staff members.

Join us to learn how a point-of-use inventory management system connects the ERP and EHR to improve workflows for both nurses and supply chain teams.

Learning objectives:
  • Identify specific data components the inventory management system provides that the EHR and ERP cannot and why integration between these systems stems is critical for creating a closed loop supply chain from dock to doc.
  • Learn how AI-enhanced real-time data analytics enhance surgical preference cards, improve demand planning and reduce supply variation and waste.
  • Learn how to foster collaboration across different departments to successfully launch and deploy an IMS.
