Alongside ongoing reimbursement changes, technology advances and the global COVID-19 pandemic, the health care supply chain has stepped out as a strategic enterprise-wide function.
For Kaleida Health – the largest health care provider in western New York – we recognized early on, our supply chain’s potential for driving savings, growth, and the continued delivery of outstanding patient care. Critical to achieving these goals was transforming our health system for meaningful, system-wide clinical-supply integration.
In just three years, Kaleida Health was able to recognize more than $48 million in total savings – all while ensuring access to appropriate, high-quality products at the right time for strong clinical outcomes.
Reading this case study will help you to articulate three strategies to help build a clinically integrated supply chain and work with your teams to decide which is best for your organization and explore transformational objectives at your own facility for tangible financial improvement.
