Clinical Track

The perioperative arena is the patient’s journey from diagnosis to discharge. For most IDNs, this makes up the largest single operating expense in the supply chain. It is critical to prioritize quality while considering clinical preference and financial outcome. 

As the perioperative arena continues to expand and develop, a strategic review is imperative. IDNs regularly face challenges when it comes to product decision-making, process optimization, and value analysis in the perioperative arena. Join Lehigh Valley Health Network and University of Mississippi Medical Center as they discuss their experiences in the perioperative arena and how changes in process impacted their IDN.
