4 ways to automate an ASC supply chain

Medline's Outpatient Outcomes magazine outlined eight ways ASCs can streamline supply chain ordering with inventory management software.

Here are the insights they shared:

1. Automated ordering reduces human error and makes ordering more accurate. Automated ordering also saves ASC administrators time by reducing paperwork and consolidating data entry.

2. Automating invoices and payments improve performance by reducing financial errors.

3. Inventory management software can also help ASCs track spending analytics and cost-saving initiatives.

4. A successful inventory management system has a simple, intuitive interface, synchronizes with vendors and integrates with other software systems.
