Supply chain tip of the week: Use data to motivate change

While comparative cost data can be sensitive, it is some of the most compelling data available for driving change, according to Carola Endicott, Vice President of Services and Operations for Cardinal Health™ Inventory Management Solutions.

She shared the following tip with Becker's Hospital Review:

"Providing physicians with product pricing information before, during and after a procedure [can open] their eyes to the way that one product choice can significantly impact total cost of care delivery. Physicians want to know their own cost per case, how their supply choices compare to peers [with similar] case types and the potential for safe, effective and less expensive alternatives."
