"Since price savings are slowly disappearing particularly for large hospital systems and integrated delivery networks (IDNs), they now need new power tools like our just released Utilizer® Dashboard Enhanced Enterprise Version to continue to make significant savings happen for their healthcare organizations," says Robert T. Yokl, President, Strategic Value Analysis® in Healthcare (SVAH).
It's a little known fact that healthcare organizations have been staying alive in these turbulent economic times by wringing the towel dry on their supply chain price savings. But these once lucrative and abundant price savings are slowing coming to an end. Group purchasing organizations, which were the main source of these savings, are now increasing their renewal contract prices to their members by 1% to 3%, not reducing them. Nonetheless, healthcare organizations still need to uncover new savings in their supply chain expenses in order for their healthcare organization to survive in this economic downturn that could last for three to five more years.
"That's why hospital systems and IDNs with tens-of-thousands of SKUs (stockkeeping units) need to start focusing their savings efforts on the utilization (or in-use cost) of their product, service and technology. This is how SVAH's Utilizer® Dashboard Enhanced Enterprise Version clients have document new utilization savings in the range of 7% to 15% annually," notes Yokl.
For this reason hospital systems and IDNs actually need supply chain radar to uncover all of their utilization misalignments or wasteful and inefficient consumption, misuse, misapplication and value mismatches all at once. The Utilizer® Dashboard Enhanced Enterprise Version makes this easy to accomplish since it simulates radar to uncover utilization savings that are now hidden from healthcare organizations view.
Think of the Utilizer® Dashboard Enhanced Enterprise Version as a powerful, easy way of providing your supply chain executives with strong utilization baseline data, internal and external utilization benchmarks, best practices, actionable reports, and total visibility into your supply chain. It goes beyond spend management for deeper and broader savings!
