The healthcare supply chain comprises the processes of procurement, delivery, storage, distribution, and usage in order to provide the highest standards of care and service to customers. This major expenditure, which often consumes 15 to 30 percent of a hospitalís operating budget, includes everything from surgical products and capital equipment to pharmaceuticals.
For example, we rapidly evaluate and implement corrective actions in the areas of contract review, procurement, pricing, business processes, product standardization and utilization, and technology. Our supply chain solution can generate savings of 10 percent or more. This annual savings goes straight to the bottom line and can be used to support other critical investments.
Additionally, Care Origin provides financial and operational supply chain benchmarking that compares your operation to key competitors and best-in-class organizations, and locates immediate opportunities for operational and financial improvement.
