3 ways ASCs can cut supply chain overhead

Pam Hooper, RN, CEO of Little Rock, Ark.-based Consultants in Healthcare, shared three ways to cut supply chain costs in ASCs in the April 2019 edition of ASC Focus, the journal of the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association.

1. Local supply vendors can often save ASCs money compared to group purchasing organizations.

2. Networking with other ASCs in the area can help practices learn about new supply vendors, which may offer lower prices than the vender the ASC is currently using.

3. Being open to switching vendors can help save ASCs money.
