How Sanford Health SPD achieved 90%+ physician preference card accuracy with Tecsys partnership

This webinar is on-demand and can be viewed at your convenience. 

Physician preference card accuracy is vital — without it, hospitals face frustrated surgeons, waste, reduced safety and increased costs. 

This on-demand webinar focuses on how the Sterile Processing team at Sanford Health's Fargo, N.D. Medical Center collaborated with Supply Chain and Perioperative teams to optimize physician preference cards. To date, this has resulted in a 90%+ preference card accuracy rate and $1.4 million in savings from on-hand inventory reduction alone, not including labor and productivity gains. 
Learn about how a strong partnership between Sanford Health and Tecsys, a supply chain software and technology provider, can lead to unprecedented success in optimizing preference card accuracy.

During the session, Tecsys and Sanford Health will discuss:

• The benefits of preference card optimization and how to start.
• How to develop trusting relationships with other teams, gain support and work collaboratively toward the same goal.
• The key data points to understand financial vs. clinical impact.
• Best practices to implement a preference card optimization program that allows for measurable and continuous improvement.
