Savings Beyond Price 2021 - The Future of Supply Chain Savings
January 20, 2021
Thank you to this session's sponsor:
Registration at the link above is required to access the meeting.
Hospitals and health systems have achieved huge savings gains from group purchasing and internal supply chain contracting/sourcing over the past 10-15 years. There is no doubt that healthcare supply chain contracting and strategic sourcing programs have reached a high level of maturity. A byproduct of this maturity is fewer price savings opportunities available than there used to be in all the major and minor supply categories. Add to this the fallout of 2020 with revenue, PPE, and other product sourcing challenges that are ongoing today.
This means that supply chain needs to add new avenues of savings that have not been tapped into. This session will take you down this path to Savings Beyond Price and give you a vision, strategy, and tools to find as much as 7%-15% additional savings from your supply budget.
From this program, attendees will:
- Gain a new perspective of why "Savings Beyond Price" is the future of supply chain expense savings
- Set a path for finding and driving out all hidden costs that are ready for you to act on
- Find out how you can enhance your value analysis, standardization, and strategic sourcing with new "Savings Beyond Price" strategies, tools, and techniques
