The case for supply chain transformation
As the health care industry faces new threats — from eroding margins to changing business models — one thing is certain: business as usual is no longer a viable option. Health care providers’ slow-to-change, steady-as-she-goes business approach has reached a tipping point. Today’s market requires business leaders to re-consider the past way of getting things done and find new approaches that deliver savings — and fast!
Historically, the supply chain function counted on leaders that could “get it done” by focusing on transactional requirements to purchase goods and services for the hospital. Today’s health systems need leaders skilled in identifying broken processes, and adept at implementing new technologies and solutions to further improve functional operations.
The good news
Operational supply chain improvement is not a distant hope. The book is already written. The metrics are set. The solutions are developed. As a result, elevating operational improvement is a matter of methodology and implementation. So the question is, “Does your health system have the strategic focus to implement, and the will to see these improvements through to completion?”
