It is easy to overlook the operational efficiency of administrative functions, but the impact of doing so can result in noticeable operational breakdowns. In a healthcare environment where operational efficiency is critical, taking advantage of the solutions that are proven and readily available is simple.
Our procurement services work as an extension of your operation to:
It is tempting to assume that your team is operating at peak efficiency but all the effort that goes into contracting and with few (or sometimes no) operational metrics, can you gauge your organization’s operational efficiency? How do you ensure that you are capturing that pricing at the point of purchase?
For healthcare leaders, the imperative to deliver cost savings is at an all-time high. In the new healthcare landscape, where on-time product fulfillment is as critical as ever, doing so at any cost is no longer a sustainable approach. Today’s approach requires supply chain to get the product to patient’s bedside on time, at the right price, according to the terms of each vendor agreement.
There is a way to increase the efficiency within the procurement function that can increase throughput and productivity. Once the operations are optimized, in many cases productivity can improve by 2-3x while standardizing procurement processes.
Vizient Procurement Services provide discipline and standardization with the highest possible customer service and support to manage procurement operations that meet best-in-class benchmarks resulting in increased throughput and productivity.
