As the healthcare industry continues to evolve due to reform impacts, health systems are seeking innovative ways to remove waste, cut costs and improve patient care. Health system supply chains play a large role in the strategic direction and goals of their organizations and can play an even larger part in these initiatives. In 2012, Mercy Health, one of the Top 15 Health Systems in the Nation by Truven Health Analytics, completely transformed its operating model in order to become more efficient and effective at delivering patient care and prepare for current and future changes in the payment model.
In this session, learn how Mercy Health leveraged its success in supply chain to consolidate real estate, construction, property management and other support functions into one organization called Resource Management. Join Mercy Health leaders as they discuss the results and learnings three years later.
