AHRMM17: Focus on building a patient-centered supply chain
July 18, 2017
AHRMM17 is coming up July 23-26, 2017 in Washington D.C. and we’re looking forward to showing you how our supply chain solutions for healthcare can help you have a more patient-centered approach in order to engage and achieve the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement inspired by healthcare’s Triple Aim.
Healthcare supply chain leaders are challenged with working toward the three-part aim of better health, better care, and lower cost. You understand patient flow and which materials are required to deliver patient care. Now is the time to take a modern approach to managing your supply chain in order to combat challenges associated with reducing supply waste, providing real-time tracking to route supplies, and meeting stringent cost and safety requirements. A patient-centered supply chain redesigns how supplies are selected, moved, and delivered to the patient care setting. This approach ensures that everything the caregiver needs is in the room when he or she arrives to care for the patient.
A major trend that I expect to hear about at AHRMM is that supply chain is no longer just about pricing, but how we can meet budgetary needs while working toward the well-being and safety of patients, which stems from a desire within healthcare to move to a system of value-based care. Other major topics will be around advancing analytics through supply chain, value analysis and budget impact analysis (BIA) that focus on how to bridge organizational gaps to help improve coverage decisions for new products or procedures. Supply chain professionals are critical collaborators who can help make progress to achieve these trends, which is why AHRMM is the perfect platform to gather and discuss how technology can help form a patient-centered supply chain.
