It’s been said that you can’t manage what you can’t measure. Supply chain leaders face overwhelming amounts of fluctuating data produced by multiple systems and information sources and understand that key process changes to improve data accuracy, increase automation and transparency will improve operations. To achieve the end-to-end supply chain visibility they desire and control costs, leaders must turn to data analytics to find solutions. However, this shift requires not only analytic tools but also the knowledge to apply them. In this session, GPO executive panelists will discuss how they are helping members harness big data and analytics to yield dramatic results in a post-reform world.
1. Describe the components that make up an impactful analytics strategy.
2. Define the key factors of supply chain visibility and transparency.
3. Identify ways GPOs are using predictive analytics, performance management and risk analytics
to improve the future of healthcare.
