The healthcare industry is rapidly evolving. In the past year, we’ve observed dramatic changes driven by mergers and acquisitions, population health initiatives, and value based payment reform. As a result, hospitals are increasingly tasked with delivering resources in a manner that lowers costs, enhances quality, and contributes to the improvement of patient outcomes.
In order to achieve these Triple Aim objectives (cost, quality, and outcomes), a health system’s management of its total logistics operations - defined as management of inbound and outbound freight from vendors, small parcel and large cargo shipments, courier and fleet services - must enhance supply chain activities by adding value or reducing costs each step in the process.
Here Are Total Logistics Strategies You Can Adopt Right Now
• Gain control of logistics spend by auditing vendor participation in managed program and review compliance to optimize savings
• Identify sustainable improvement opportunities that increase cost savings and decrease spending on undiscounted freight shipments
• Aggregate and extrapolate data quickly to fuel better decision making in lowering costs and improving quality
