Optimize supply utilization—and your budget

The cost of wasted supplies adds up fast. One study estimated that nearly $1,000 in opened but unused products are thrown out after neurosurgery procedures.1 That’s almost $3 million. We have lean tools and processes to help you improve utilization and reduce the waste of unused or expired products.

CASE STUDY

How less time on supply tasks gave nurses more time for care

It’s not about more hours in a day; it’s about spending less of them doing things that can be better managed through the supply chain. We worked with a major health system to streamline their supply management and free caregivers to do what they do best: care for patients.

Relieve clinicians of supply tasks so they can focus on care

Caregivers often spend more time hunting down items and managing supplies than caring for patients. Yet when nurses are able to stay focused on caregiving, patients are less likely to suffer complications. We have efficient ways to help you simplify supply management and return caregivers to the bedside.

Streamline supply handling from “dock to doc”

We help you eliminate time-consuming, labor-intensive steps with services ranging from providing bins at the dock to decasing for the OR.
