Lunch N Learn | Developing a Clinically Integrated Supply Chain for Modern Day Healthcare  

The post-pandemic world has brought new challenges to healthcare, including ongoing supply chain disruptions, rising costs, and an evolving reimbursement environment.  In this setting, a clinically integrated supply chain is no longer optional but essential.   It involves the collaboration of supply chain professionals, clinicians, and senior leadership around making more informed product choices that support quality outcomes while reducing waste and lowering costs.  Achieving clinical integration is no easy feat and necessitates a system-wide cultural shift in mindset and processes.  A partnership between value analysis and supply chain teams is one important step in this evolution.

Modern-day value analysis provides a collaborative forum to recoup savings, partner with suppliers, and obtain the high-quality products and supplies necessary for outstanding patient care delivery. Successful value analysis entails structure, engagement from clinical users, and accountability. 

 This session will detail the importance of creating a clinically integrated framework and highlight the role of value analysis in getting there.  Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the book The Healthcare Supply Chain: Best Practices for Operating at the Intersection of Cost, Quality, and Outcomes.
