Tuesday, February 13, 2018 | 11:00am - 12:00pm CT

It’s no surprise that traditional inventory management practices are linked to waste, higher costs and inefficiencies in the supply chain. Identifying best practices such as supply optimization, encouraging physician engagement and automation is key to enabling successful supply chain and clinical operations. A recent study by Navigant Consulting has shown that up to $23B is being saved by the supply chains at top US Hospitals each year*

Join Tapan Shah, MBA and Sue Champion, RN, BSN, MBA, CNOR as they discuss how they’ve tackled these barriers and utilized automation as a channel to not only reduce inventory costs and waste, but been able to enhance the clinical workflow allowing clinicians to focus on what matters most – the patient.

Attendees will learn about:

  • How to capture critical data and how to leverage it to better analyze and predict supply needs among all stakeholders
  • Common challenges faced by clinical and supply chain teams
  • Best practices to manage inventory and its impact on the patient experience
  • Steps to take to drive change and achieve buy-in from key stakeholders
