Hospital supply chain is the fastest-growing expense for providers; and second only to labor costs as a budget item. Supply chain complexity and the need to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency are leading hospital supply chain managers to standardize and streamline across their network. Consolidation and centralization of resources such as supply management, pharmacy, laboratory services and food service is creating significant cost-saving opportunities for many hospital systems.
Enhancing these initiatives with automation creates connectivity throughout a hospital system—enabling system-wide visibility to the value and location of inventory, including medications and supplies.
