Supply Chain Tip of the Week: Three steps to optimize supply mode in your facility

By analyzing and optimizing the ways that supplies are delivered to a facility, supply chain leaders can begin to cut waste, save money and ensure clinical staff have the products they need.

Here are three steps to optimize delivery mode throughout an organization:

1. Provide proof of concept to demonstrate the viability of a new solution. This allows for a solution to be piloted and refined with a distributor before it is rolled out to the entire health system.

2. Establish a standardized process across all departments. Even when there is high variability within facilities, if the right tools and systems are in place, the process can be repeated and the potential for human error will be minimized.

3. Generate stakeholder buy-in by ensuring that all parties involved are aligned on goals and priorities from the start. This includes building trust in the data and simplifying the story the data tells.
