Are your rural hospitals paying higher supply chain costs?
Did you know that rural and community hospitals are some of the most underserved when it comes to supply chain operations? The data shows that these hospitals pay about 30-40% more on supply chain costs than an IDN.
Rural hospitals are serving critical needs in their communities, and yet they struggle with supply chain pricing and purchasing power. What’s more: Rural hospitals tend to get less support from national GPOs.
But just because this scenario is common doesn’t mean it needs to continue.
Join our Webinar: Bridging the Price Gap in Rural Hospital Supply Chain
Bridging the Price Gap in Rural Hospital Supply Chain
Thursday, May 25, 1–2 p.m. EDT.
You’re invited to join our upcoming webinar with the American Hospital Association. Dan Hurry, President of Advantus Health Partners, will present solutions for how rural and community hospitals can bridge the supply chain price gap between big and small players by:
- Optimizing their price schedule – take advantage of a “Costco model” where there is one price for all
- Streamlining workflow and staffing – drive decisions for better process design, more efficient product and inventory management, and effective organizational design
- Leveraging technology and insights – use more than spreadsheets to identify opportunities and find value
We hope to see you there!
