Services that yield results
OR operating at full health? We can help you fully optimize inventory with gap analyses on current processes and by embedding best practices to limit errors and open communication.
Offsite Sterile and Case Cart Processing
An in-depth feasibility study determines if offsite processing is a viable option based on your logistics and footprint. If so, our full planning services will guide you to successful implementation.
Preference Card Standardization
Have thousands of out-of-date, redundant or obsolete preference cards in your system? Pulling the wrong card creates a domino of costly delays. We apply process techniques to organize, analyze, consolidate and standardize preference cards for accuracy and efficiency.
Supply Quantities and Locations Recommendations
Often, key supplies are scattered across locations and managed inconsistently while many organizations can’t access quality information to back inventory decisions. We’ll evaluate your sterile processing practices and consolidate supplies based on usage, clinical preferences and real-life data.
Scheduling Accuracy & Standardization
Most providers have a 30 percent or greater scheduling error rate. Fragmented processes and fuzzy nomenclature are common culprits. We lead collaborative processes like grouping procedures and standardizing language for surgical teams to learn from errors and make improvements.
Finding the right person to manage your supply chain is a challenging hire. We’ll do the heavy lifting by embedding a supply chain resource that is recruited, hired, trained and managed by Vanderbilt Health Supply Chain Solutions, but fully dedicated to your facility.
Process and KPI Development
Success requires smart goals. We collaborate with you to map the path forward and establish specific and measurable performance indicators, helping your teams chart progress and make intelligent adjustments.
