No Device Left Behind
Today’s healthcare leaders have proven the value of integrating supply chain to drive efficiency and process automation. These changes have enabled procurement staff to spend more time on strategic initiatives to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Eyes are beginning to turn towards surgical instrument inventories and as it turns out, dirty secrets still lie beneath our operating rooms. While the cost of maintaining instrument trays are rising, some providers are reporting utilization rates as low as 40%.
The device left behind is the best way to describe what has happened to surgical instruments. With all of the changes in healthcare supply chain, this category with unique needs and layers of complexity has ultimately remained unchanged. What if we could easily standardize our surgical trays across a hospital and even an entire health system, or simply reduce costly inventory waste by 30% or more? By engineering great software we are ready to offer answers to these questions and more. Sign up for a private beta at summit.ascendcohealth.com.
