Part 4: Bringing Civilization to the Nonacute Supply Chain Frontier

Thought leaders are referring to nonacute care as the new frontier in health care management, conjuring up images of frontier life where people learn to be resourceful and make due. These old adages are somewhat fitting when it comes to managing the supply chain for nonacute health care locations where standard operating procedures are rare, standardization is lacking and purchasing practices may be borderline of the wild west. In this session, learn how one health system, St. Luke's Health System, brought civility to their nonacute frontier and delivered $1.2 million in first-year savings.
