As the healthcare industry moves to a more patient-centered model, IDNs and health systems are working to find a balance between a physician’s right to choose products they feel are best for their patient, while also managing the cost associated with the purchase of these products. This is leading to a more direct line of communication between physicians and supply chain leaders.
In this session, hear from St. Joseph Hospital System as they outline the process and criteria they have developed to determine improved, as opposed to equivalent, patient outcomes for new medical device products. Also hear from Allen Passerallo as he discusses the implications on the relationships and interdependencies of physicians and supply chain leaders.
1. Identify ways to gain physician input and acceptance.
2. Construct key components of physician/supply chain leader relationships.
3. Formulate strategies to maintain health system balance.
