About this Program

Every supply chain leader must navigate their organization through the financial challenges of COVID-19. Capital requests continue to be submitted, but the available budget to fulfill those requests has been deeply impacted by the pandemic. Join us for a webinar that will outline an entirely new tranche of cost savings that can be achieved with an equipment sharing program.


You will be provided with a framework to benchmark equipment utilization across your facilities, and the steps to practically implement a sharing program, maximizing the utilization of existing capital equipment. Learn from two health system case studies on how asset sharing can reduce new equipment needs by as much as 50%, while eliminating rental costs and satisfying more capital requests from your clinical team.


From this program, attendees will:

  • Learn about the essential components of an equipment sharing program
  • Apply a savings model to your hospital/health system from equipment sharing
  • Leverage new approaches to benchmarking equipment utilization in your hospital/health system
  • Summarize the lessons learned from other health systems sharing equipment

Who Should Attend?

EVERYONE! Directors of Materials Management, Supply Chain/Resource Managers, Patient Experience Professionals, Infection Control Practitioners, O.R. Managers/Staff, Support Services Management, Environmental Services, Pharmacy, and Corporate VP of Supply Chain Management.
